Now Playing: Monster Hunter Rise - Official Gameplay Trailer | Nintendo Direct

In Monster Hunter Rise, you won't always be the one doing the hunting. This time around, the monsters are coming for you and your allies. In order to defend your home, you'll have to work alongside other hunters to defeat waves of encroaching monsters. Going it alone is possible, but it will be pretty tough.

Featuring both a single-player campaign and hunts that encourage cooperative play, Monster Hunter Rise will launch for Nintendo Switch on March 26.
