Monster Hunter Rise has been announced and it’s coming to Nintendo Switch in 2021.

Capcom announced Monster Hunter Rise today during the Nintendo Direct Mini.

The world seems rather open and will also be able to ride a dog. Monsters revealed include Aknosom, Great Izuchi, Tetranadon, and a new monster called Magnamalo.

The game puts you into the world of Kamura Village, a new mountain locale where you will experience unique culture and innovative hunting technologies.

Using a special insect called a Wirebug, hunters will be able to grapple in any direction, making it possible to scale  cliffs and structures.

All combat areas within each quest are seamlessly connected, allowing for exploration of the large vertical landscapes with no loading times.

A Deluxe Edition will be available, which offers the full game and bonus DLC. Pre-ordering the base or Deluxe version will unlock bonus in-game items like layered armor and more.

You will also get more in-game extras with Monster Hunter amiibo which will be made available exclusively at GameStop locations in the US and EB Games in Canada.

Monster Hunter Rise is slated for a March 26 release.
