Monster Hunter Rise launches on Switch on March 26, but players will have the opportunity to play more of the gameplay before then in the second demo.
The second demo will include the missions from the previous demo and a new “advanced” quest to hunt the game’s lead monster, the Magnamalo. Similar to the previous demo, you can only collectively play the hunts 30 times. You can also play the demo with friends as long as you have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription.
Capcom also released a new trailer today titled, Kamura’s Hope. The trailer went over the game’s story and the mystery behind “The Rampage”. It also highlighted some of the monsters you’ll take on in your adventure. Both the Nargacuga and the Zinogre monsters will be in the game as well.
The trailer was capped off with the reveal of the first post-launch content: the Elder Dragon Chameleos. This update will arrive as a free update sometime in April.
