Monster Hunter Rise (MHRise) has been announced as a Nintendo Switch exclusive. Will it be coming to the PS4, PC, and Steam as well? Find out everything we know here.

Currently, Monster Hunter Rise has been announced to be a Nintendo Switch exclusive game. There has been no news of an announcement for other platforms such as PS4 or PS5, PC, or Xbox.
There is a chance that it will come to these other platforms eventually, but the currently set release date of March 26th is set for the Nintendo Switch alone.
Don't worry about which Switch you need—all versions of the Nintendo Switch, including the Switch Lite, are able to play Monster Hunter Rise both on and offline.
▲MHGU also missed a release on the PS4.
The chance of a release on PS4/PS5 or Xbox is unfortunately quite low based on past record. Including spin-off games, no game in the series has been released on both Nintendo and Sony platforms.
In the past, Monster Hunter games have crossed the Nintendo-Sony border as alternate versions of the same title. For example, Monster Hunter 3 was originally released for the Wii, and was then reframed as Monster Hunter Portable 3rd in Japan for the PSP. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate also took in aspects of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd in its development as well.
Based on that history, it's possible that although Monster Hunter Rise will probably not come to the PS4 or PS5 in its current form, it may arrive someday in a slightly revised form.
There are no prior examples of Monster Hunter games coming to both Nintendo Switch and PC, but the possibility seems likely. Monster Hunter World and the Iceborne Expansion were both released on PC, so it seems reasonable for Monster Hunter Rise to continue in the same vein.
That said, Monster Hunter World did not allow crossplay between PC and PS4, so it's likely that the same fate will befall the Switch and PC versions of Monster Hunter Rise.
The PC version of Monster Hunter world was released about a half-year after the PS4 version. Based on that, if a PC version of Monster Hunter Rise is in the making, it seems likely that we'll see it around September or October of 2021.

I saw that Magnamalo has two names: some shoos are selling Magnamalo Amiibo and some shops and selling Magbanaki Amiibo but they’re both the same monster. Why is that?
I hope they have different accessories for the Palamute like how the Palico can use Palico Gadgets! Maybe fang accessories which could inflict Poison, etc.?
