Monster Hunter Rise Streams Announced For Early March

Ahead of Rise's release next month, Capcom will be showing more of the game off in three livestream events.


Ahead of Monster Hunter Rise's release next month, Capcom is airing a trio of Monster Hunter streams in early March. First, the publisher will broadcast a Monster Hunter Digital Event on Monday, March 8. That stream is scheduled to begin at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET and will feature both Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, which is also coming to Nintendo Switch later this year.

The following day's stream will begin at the same time and features new Monster Hunter Rise gameplay, as well as hunting tutorials and a Q&A session with game director Yasunori Ichinose. Capcom is collecting fan questions on Twitter for the March 9 stream.

Finally, on March 11, Capcom will air a Monster Hunter Rise community livestream. Timing and other details for that broadcast will be announced at a later date.

Monster Hunter Rise launches for Nintendo Switch on March 26. Nintendo and Capcom shared a new combat-focused trailer for the game during the February 2021 Nintendo Direct. Nintendo also confirmed that the Monster Hunter Rise-themed Switch console and Pro Controller are likewise releasing on March 26. The Switch bundle retails for $370, while the Pro Controller costs $75.

Monster Hunter Stories 2, meanwhile, is slated to launch sometime this summer. Little has been revealed about the game so far, but it's an RPG spin-off that puts players in the role of a Monster Rider who can befriend monsters. The game will also have some connectivity with Monster Hunter Rise.
