Monster Hunter Rise Nintendo Switch Consoles Are up for Pre-Order

Earlier today, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Monster Hunter Rise edition finally became available in the US, so we knew that the special edition Nintendo Switch console bundle based on the game wouldn’t be far behind. That turned out to be the case as pre-orders for the console are now live here at GameStop for $369.99. We also expect it to drop here at Best Buy and here on Amazon at any moment.

The Monster Hunter Rise Nintendo Switch console features a striking design based on art the flagship monster, Magnamalo. It’s bundled with a digital code for the Deluxe Edition of Monster Hunter Rise, which explains the additional $69.99 price tag over a standard Switch. That said, if you just want the game, you can pre-order it here at Best Buy with an exclusive SteelBook bonus.

The Deluxe Edition of Monster Hunter Rise includes the following extras:

Monster Hunter Rise is set to release worldwide on March 26th, exclusively on Nintendo Switch. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game right here. An official description of the game can be found below.

“Monster Hunter Rise is an action RPG that will transport players to the colorful Kamura Village, an all-new serene mountain locale that attracts visitors with its unique culture and innovative hunting technologies. After hunters equip their armor and select from one of the various weapon types, all-new hunting grounds await, including the ancient Shrine Ruins and more. As players defeat monsters and progress through the game, items from fallen foes can be used to craft unique weapons and armor that will increase their chances of future success and survival. Hunters can tackle these challenges solo, or with up to three other players in local or cooperative online play.

Evolving the Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter Rise will provide players with an inventive set of new tools to track down and defeat threatening monsters. For the first time ever in a Monster Hunter game, wire-based grappling actions can be performed by using a “Wirebug” while standing or in mid-air, adding an all-new level of aerial maneuverability to hunting strategies and attacks. The game will also debut new hunting partners called Palamutes, personalized and rideable “Canyne” companions that will provide players with a new set of attack options, while “Felyne” Palicoes will return as support characters for actions like healing.”
