Earlier this month, Capcom released the Monster Hunter Rise demo on the Nintendo eShop in North America, Europe, Japan, and more. This time-limited demo is still available until February 1. Today, Capcom’s official Monster Hunter Rise Japan Twitter account posted a statement addressing the online lag in the demo that some players experienced. Capcom confirmed the issue was related to the number of friends a user had. Capcom also said that this lag will not occur in the final game. This is good because I had to switch to a new account on my Nintendo Switch to play the demo with friends since the lag was really bad otherwise. Ahead of the Monster Hunter Rise release date in March 2021, I recently spoke to Yasunori Ichinose at Capcom about Monster Hunter Rise’s returning monsters and more. Read the full interview here. Check out Capcom’s statement in Japanese below:
