Capcom is releasing a limited-time demo for Monster Hunter Rise today, which will be available to play on Nintendo Switch until February 1.
Capcom has announced that a demo for Monster Hunter Rise will be released today on the Nintendo eShop, but it will only be available for a limited time. Monster Hunter Rise is an upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive (but it might also be coming to PC), which is returning to the local co-op roots of the series.
Monster Hunter Rise offers more of the giant-slaying fun of the older entries in the series, but with the added QoL improvements that were introduced in Monster Hunter World. The player can now ride into battle on the back of canine Palamute mounts, as well as swing through the air like Spider-Man with Wirebugs. Monster Hunter Rise won’t be released until March, but Capcom promised that a demo was on the way, which would give fans the chance to try out the new features in the game.

Capcom hosted a digital event for Monster Hunter Rise on the official Monster Hunter YouTube channel, and the release date for the demo was revealed. The demo will be uploaded to the Nintendo eShop later today, but it will only be available until February 1st. Capcom has also confirmed in a press release that the player can only attempt thirty quests in the Monster Hunter Rise demo, but this should be more than enough to give players a taste of what the game has to offer.
The demo will contain four types of quests. The first quest is a basic tutorial for solo players, which will also include instructions for using the Palamute and Wirebug during missions. The second quest allows players to try out the new Wyvern Riding mechanic, which will allow them to temporarily gain control of wyvern-type monsters with the Wirebug. The third quest is a Great Izuchi hunt, and the fourth quest is a Mizutsune hunt. The third and fourth quests can be played with friends, either locally or online. Players will need a subscription to Nintendo Switch Online to play Monster Hunter Rise online.
The Monster Hunter Rise demo will give fans their first chance to try out the brand new features that have been added to the series. We just hope that this demo is more user-friendly than the ones for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Monster Hunter Generations, as those struggled to explain the various elements of the game to newcomers.
