The trailer features a range of game environments, as well as an extensive list of the fearsome monsters you and your friends will face in order to claim their precious crafting materials to build more powerful weapons and armor, the core loop of the series. As in previous sections, the monsters you fight range from traditional fantasy creatures like dragons, gigantic versions of real-life animals like bats and armadillos, to completely bizarre new creations made up by the design team. As an admittedly new Monster Hunter fan, I can’t tell if the bosses featured in Monster Hunter Rise are new to the franchise or returning favorites, but there seems to be more than enough to keep you and your friends busy for many, many hunts.

We also get some insight into the history of Monster Hunter Rise, which seems to focus on your character defending his village against the title beasts. This is essentially the same story as the 2018 award Monster Hunter: worldand, as I understand it, pretty much every other game on the series. But the gameplay is the star here, and judging by the trailer, battling monsters looks just as exciting and addicting as ever. The trailer also features a number of in-game pre-order and deluxe edition bonuses that you can get, as well as radical accessories that you can purchase when you launch the game, including a new set of 3 Amiibos and a Monster Hunter Pro controller . My wallet is crying gently.

Check out the trailer below. Monster Hunter Rise will be released on Nintendo Switch on March 26th.
