Monster Hunter Rise and Stories 2: Wings of Ruin

Two new Monster Hunter experiences are hitting the Switch! First, an all-new, full-fledged Monster Hunter game called Rise.

Even better though, you can bring along a dog companion called a Palamute that lets you ride into giant monster hunts in style.



Monster Hunter Stories 2 is a story-driven take on Monster Hunter with a more animated graphics style, but not much else is known about this game as of now. Rise is coming out on March 26th, 2021, and Stories 2 is launching Summer 2021.
