The news was confirmed via a new trailer premiered on Thursday, which offers the latest look at the Nintendo Switch exclusive.
Announced in September, Monster Hunter Rise will be released exclusively for Switch on March 26, 2021. Capcom will release three Amiibo alongside the game, which will let players unlock special layered armour.
Monster Hunter Rise was revealed alongside fellow Switch exclusive Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, “a rich RPG story” scheduled to be released in the summer of 2021. Capcom has said the games will share some unspecified compatibility features.
New videos released in September focused on one of the game’s key features, small creatures called Wirebugs which lets players explore cliffs and elevated platforms.
“The player carries several of these small bugs around and they allow you to climb to a variety of places that would normally be out of reach,” game director Yasunori Ichinose said earlier this month.
“Additionally, there’s a great variety of actions you can perform by combining the Wirebugs with attacks. Using these unique attacks with your favourite weapon is what the combat is going to be all about.”
