Demo Guide and Features

This is a guide to all the available contents for the Monster Hunter Rise Demo. Learn about all the included Quests, everything you can do, and the Rewards you will receive for playing the Demo.

How to Download the Demo

Demo Basic Information

Start Time January 8th, 8:00 AM GMT?
End Time February 1st, 8:00 AM GMT
Limitations Only 30 plays available

The Demo will be available for a longer period than previous demos, but it comes with a catch – only 30 total plays of the main two Quests, the Great Izuchi and Mizutsune Quests, are available.

Once players have hit 30 plays, they'll be locked out of all four Quests, so they'll need to make every play count.

How to Bypass the Demo Limit

Demo Limits

Though the game limits the users to just 30 hunts in the demo, players can bypass this limitation in two ways:

1 Creating different profiles on your Nintendo Switch as each profile have 30-hunt counters.
2 Delete the saved data for the demo! Take note though that you need to have an active demo saved file to get the Demo Rewards!

Demo Quests

There are a total of four quests that can be played: two tutorial missions and two full hunts. Remember, you can only play a total of 30 times of the two full hunts before it locks you out of all four so immerse yourself to the experience!

    • 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.?
