Nintendo has announced two new Monster Hunter games heading to the Switch. First up is Monster Hunter Rise:
Monster Hunter Rise is the latest entry in the action-RPG series, which will be set in Kamura Village (a ninja-inspired land). Features include:
Hunt solo or team up with friends to go on quests and take down massive monsters with your choice of weapons.
Brand new gameplay systems such as high-flying ‘Wire Action’ and your canine companion ‘Palamute’ will add exciting new layers to the already robust combat that Monster Hunter is known for.
Set in a world inspired by ancient Japan, explore lush ecosystems freely with no loading between areas.
The game will release on 21-03-2021. And there is a pre-order bonus:
There’s also going to be a Collector’s Edition, which will include: a physical copy of the game, Deluxe Kit DLC Pack download code, a Magnamalo amiibo, a “Kamura Mark” pin badge and a sticker pack.
Did you just read Amiibo? Yes, yes you did. Because 3 new Amiibo are heading our way. Each will unlock a special layered armor in Monster Hunter Rise and you can also play a daily lottery to win various useful items.
The second announced title is Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.
It will release in the summer of 2021 and will have some form of connectivity with Monster Hunter Rise, but so far that’s all we really know about this game.
Pre-orders for a bundle with Cat Mario and Cat Peach are up on Amazon UK. Scheduled for release on February 12th 2021 (coinciding with the release of Super Mario 3D World for the Switch), the bundle will cost £29.99. Expect to see similar prices on other Western markets.
Good news for fans of Fortnite. Nintendo has just announced a special Fortnite themed Switch console. As of this writing, release has been confirmed on the 30th of October in Europe and on the 6th of November for Australia and New Zealand.

Nintendo Switch console with a unique Fortnite design on the back
