Two New Monster Hunter Entries Coming to the Nintendo Switch


Announced during today’s Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase video presentation, both Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin and Monster Hunter Rise will make their way to the Nintendo Switch.

The latest entry in the action-RPG series, Monster Hunter Rise transports players to the serene mountain locale of Kamura Village. While there, players will use a special insect called a Wirebug, which allows hunters to grapple themselves in any direction. Combat areas within each quest are seamlessly connected, meaning there are no loading times.
