When going on a group hunt, whether with your friends or random people, communication is key for a game like Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise)! Learn whether voice chat is available via the Switch, and our recommendations for the best apps to use for voice chat.

Currently, in-game Voice Chat for Monster Hunter Rise is not available via the Nintendo Switch.
As of right now, there is no news from Capcom nor the game developers regarding whether or not there will be Voice Chat in the future.
Sadly, it isn't possible to use voice chat with only the Nintendo Switch itself. You will have to use external devices such as smartphones and PCs.
・Compatible with smartphones and PCs
・Simple and easy to use
・Has text chat
・Best to use with friends
・Official app by Nintendo
・Can only be used on smartphones
・Calls can only be made when the game is running
・For now, it's unknown whether MHRise will support use of this app
・Can easily speak with random people
・Monster Hunter Rise does not support the Nintendo Switch Online App. There is no news yet for support in future updates so we suggest using Discord for now!
These are the two voice chat apps recommended in this article, though there are others available such as Skype. Feel free to use whichever feels most comfortable for you and your friends!
In this setup, sounds will come from both the Nintendo Switch and your smart device. So if you play with earphones, it will be difficult to hear them both since you will typically only wear one set of earphones.
If this is too much of a problem for you, a sound mixer will solve it easily! You can plug in your Switch and your smart device into the sound mixer, and it will course their sounds through your earphones as if they were coming from one device only.
But if you're comfortable with your initial setup, then that's good too. Whatever makes MHRise more enjoyable for you and your friends!

Depending on what device you plan to use, follow the link above so you can download Discord!
Welcome to your shiny new server! Time to populate it with other people.
Now you're all set to talk with your friends! Simply press on the 'General' voice channel, then press 'Join Voice' whenever you're ready. If you just want to listen to your friends' callouts, you can easily mute yourself.
If you encounter a problem with the call, a common cause is because of your Input Mode. Go to your Settings, and from there you can choose from two: 'Voice Activity,' which means your device picks up any sound from your sound whenever, or 'Push to Talk,' which means you will have to press something on your device before Discord registers and transmits any sound.
If you have a noisy environment, you might want to use 'Push to Talk' over 'Voice Activity.' But it is much easier to use 'Voice Activity' because you don't have to let go of your Nintendo Switch just to be able to say something.

Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
