Announced during today’s Monster Hunter Digital Event, Capcom will release a free Monster Hunter Rise demo on the Nintendo eShop tonight.
Running through January 31, the demo will support offline solo play, along with offline local and online multiplayer gameplay that supports up to four players. 14 different weapon types will also be included. Training, Wyvern Riding, the Beginner Quest: Great Izuchi, and the Intermediate Quest: Mizutsune will all be available for play.
Hunters will have a total of 30 quest attempts, shared between the beginner and intermediate quests. Note that the Tutorial and Wyvern Riding training will not count against the 30 quest limit, but those two modes will not be accessible after the quest attempt limit is reached.
