I recently spoke to Yasunori Ichinose at Capcom about Monster Hunter Rise’s returning monsters and more. Read the full interview here. I also spoke to Ryozo Tsujimoto about Monster Hunter Stories 2 and how it can be enjoyed by newcomers. Read that interview here. Since the Monster Hunter April 2021 Digital Event will feature updates on both Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2, I’m hopeful that Capcom announces more plans for post launch updates to both games.
Monster Hunter Rise is out now on Nintendo Switch. It releases in 2022 for PC via Steam. Monster Hunter Stories 2 releases on July 9 worldwide on Steam and Nintendo Switch.
