Fans of Capcom’s immensely popular Monster Hunter franchise might want to get their Nintendo Switch consoles ready for download, as the publisher has announced that Monster Hunter Rise limited-time demo is now available at the Nintendo eShop for download, as well as releasing a couple of videos for the game — including the Wyvern Riding and some Hunting 101 videos following the Monster Hunter Digital Event live stream.
Here’s the details on the limited-time demo via Press Release from the Monster Hunter Rise team:
■ Limited-Time Demo
The demo has four quest types available: a Beginner Quest, an Intermediate Quest, a Basic Training Quest, and a Wyvern Riding Training Quest, which will help you get used to the new Wyvern Riding feature. Of course, all 14 weapon types are playable.
The Beginner Quest and Intermediate Quest can of course be played solo, but they are also available in local co-op and online co-op.
For this demo, you’ll get to explore the Shrine Ruins. This is a great locale for learning about the Wirebug and the new stat-boosting endemic life featured in this game.
The Beginner Quest features Great Izuchi, while the Intermediate Quest has you take on Mizutsune, which we revealed today. Of course, you’ll be able to take a Palamute and / or Palico with you, so you can experience riding a Canyne and receiving various kinds of support from your Buddies.
The Basic Training Quest will teach you how to use the Wirebug, and the Wyvern Riding Training Quest will let you try out the new Wyvern Riding feature. Wyvern Riding is a new system that allows you to control monsters for a while, by dealing enough damage through aerial attacks or Silkbind attacks using the Wirebug, or by using turf wars or endemic life to your advantage. While controlling wild monsters, you can move around and attack, and you can even slam them into walls, so this is definitely something you’ll want to check out.
