A differently-colored Mizutsune with new bubbles was revealed in a Japanese Monster Hunter Rise commercial. It's completely different from the Mizutsune we encountered in the demo, so it's definitely the Apex version!
On March 12th at 1:00 AM GMT (March 11th at 9 PM EST), the second Demo for Monster Hunter Rise was released. This round adds a new foe, the flagship monster Magnamalo! With a time limit of only 15 minutes, hunters will need to bring out every trick in the book to best this foe.
Hunters that prefer to play on the PC, rejoice! It was announced that Monster Hunter Rise will be coming to Steam early in 2022.

IGN released an exclusive gameplay video where they hunted a Somnacanth in the Frost Islands using Dual Blades! Somnacanth uses a lot of attacks that can put you to sleep and damages you through blast attacks. Barioth also showed up in the hunt for a while.
Meanwhile, IGNJapan used the Hunting Horn in the same hunt. Check these videos out for an in-depth look at Frost Islands, Somnacanth, and the two weapons!
The demo period has already ended last February 1, 2021! If you have downloaded the demo during the demo period, you may still play solo or multiplayer locally!
The brand new Training Area was revealed! It looks like it has a lot of things you can interact with and practice your skills with. They also showed the Mizutsune Hunting Horn, which looks just as beautiful as the armor set!
In the previous game, bringing Hot Drinks to cold environments such as the Frost Islands was standard practice. But now, it seems like they're completely removed from the game!
