|Release Date||March 11th, 2021|
|Contents||Previous demo, plus new fight with Magnamalo|
A new battle with the monster Magnamalo will be available in a brand new addition to the demo! This battle will be much harder than the already-released Mizutsune, so be sure to team up for it!
The Monster appearing at around 33:55 of the Digital Event video has not been seen before in any trailer or Monster Hunter game.
In fact, our team noticed that it bears a striking resemblance to the Monster Hunter Rise logo.
With Magnamalo already confirmed for the second Demo, it seems anticlimactic to appear as the final boss of the game. It's possible that this new Monster will serve as true final boss.
If this really is the Monster from the logo, then it raises further questions – such as, why are there two monsters shown in the logo of the game?
Two fan favorites returning from previous games, Nargacuga and Zinogre were announced to be back in Monster Hunter Rise!
In addition, Barroth appeared in a quick shot during the event, confirming its presence in the game.
We're happy to see Chameleos finally back in Monster Hunter Rise. That said, it won't be available immediately upon release of the game.
Chameleos, along with several other new monsters, will be coming in the first Free Title Update, which has been confirmed for the end of April, so a release date of around April 30th is expected.
Another Free Title Update with several more monsters will be coming later at a currently unannounced time.
The new Switch Skills feature allows for players to switch out certain Silkbind Attacks, granting a total of three Silkbind Attacks for every weapon.
As only two Silkbind Attacks were previously available for each Weapon, this unlocks new potential for each Weapon and will potentially shake up the Weapon Tier List.
The Rampage has been confirmed to be a new game mode with a tower defense style of play.
Prepare three types of installations before the horde of Monsters arrives, then use power-up tools like the Counter Signal to fight off the Monsters and keep Kamura Village safe.
The newly announced Hunter Connect mode allows for matchmaking with other players online. This allows for players to easily find new fellow hunters without any fuss.
The Like Function serves as a pseudo-Friend system for the game, allowing players to Like one another after battlign together, so that they can find each other to set out on a hunt once again. Players can use this to avoid running the risk involved with connecting with a brand new group each time.
The Photo Mode feature makes it easier than ever to take screenshots on the fly. The in-game album makes it even easier, avoiding the need to leave the game to view the album each time you want to check the pictures you've taken so far.
Quest Difficulty has been announced to adjust flexibly based on the number of players involved. Monsters will become stronger the more players join forces to defeat it, and even if a player joins mid-battle or suddenly drops out, the difficulty will scale again to match the new number of players.
