What is Monster Hunter: Rise?

Monster Hunter: Rise is the sixth main instalment of the Monster Hunter franchise. Capcom also released the game in March 2021 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. However, they added a PC version later in January 2022.

It was a year later when they also released it for PlayStation 4 & 5 and Xbox One & Series X|S. The Sunbreak expansion came shortly after. Rise also sold over 12 million copies worldwide since its release.

Ryozo Tsujimoto, the game’s producer, said that they wanted to move away from the traditional numbering of the titles. After Monster Hunter 4, they decided to name the following games World and Rise.

Rise took its name from the concept of the game’s vertical movement. It also resulted in a more Japanese or Far Eastern aesthetic.

Precise Gameplay and Simple Mechanics

Although Rise follows the same mechanics as its sibling, it improves the gameplay of Monster Hunter: World. It might have the same fundamentals but Rise is undoubtedly unique. Now, the developers want the gamers to focus heavily on movement and precise mechanics.

Rise also follows the main concept like the other titles in the franchise. You play as a hunter tasked with slaying or capturing different monsters. We also see the same tools and weapons but with different technical mechanics.

A good example would be the Heavy Bowgun class. You might think that you might have restrained movement with such a heavy weapon. However, the movement mechanics in Rise allow you to go practically anywhere on the map.

The game also introduces a new mini-game called Rampage. It’s a quest involving multiple large monsters trying to break their way into the village. Your task is to suppress and prevent them from doing so.

If you like challenges, then you must try High-Ranked Rampages. You can even bring along your friends and have some fun laughs as many of you will die repeatedly. However, the best part of Rise isn’t the Rampage.

With the introduction of Palamutes, you can now reach zones faster than in the previous titles. Your Palamute is a canine that you acts as a mount and a secondary support, aside from your Palico. Can you imagine having a dog that shoots multiple kunai with its mouth?

You Have to Try Monster Hunter: Rise

If you haven’t played any of the Monster Hunter titles, you should try Rise. Monster Hunter: Rise is the perfect gateway for rookie hunters to make a name for themselves. You can play with whatever style you want, be it tank, damage-dealers, or support. Just make sure to always bring some healing potions, okay?
