Two Monster Hunter games are coming to Nintendo Switch

Including Monster Hunter: Rise and Monster Hunter 2: Wings of Ruin.

Heads up, Switch players! Nintendo recently announced at the latest Nintendo Direct Mini that two new Monster Hunter games are coming exclusively to the Switch!

The new games include Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.

The first of the two games is Monster Hunter Rise, a new full-fledged entry into the series. While it looks similar to titles such as Monster Hunter World, this Switch title features far more verticality through the use of a new wall-climbing ability as well as Wirebugs. These Wirebugs act like grappling hooks which can be used to navigate the wide and open locations of the game.

Rise also introduces Palamutes, a dog companion which players can ride while exploring the map. Don’t worry though, the beloved Palicos are still in the game!

The next game is Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. This game is not your typical MH experience as it’s a story-driven RPG set in the world of Monster Hunter. The game serves as a sequel to the the first Monster Hunter Stories game which released on the 3DS in 2017.

Monster Hunter Rise will release on March 26, 2021. Meanwhile, Monster Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will launch in Summer 2021.
