Monster Hunter Rise has been confirmed for an early 2022 release on Steam according to the official website for the game.
Monster Hunter Rise is the direct successor to Monster Hunter World that brings the fusion of the new MH World with the portability of the Monster Hunter series on Nintendo’s handheld. It was confirmed to release on March 26, 2021, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch but a leak revealed the plans about a PC port coming later down the line.
Today, Capcom has updated the official website of the game to confirm the Steam version which will be revealed at a later date. This version will arrive on Steam in early 2022.
Monster Hunter Rise was first revealed by Capcom at the end of last year. This is the only major game in the series announced by Capcom after the massive success of Monster Hunter World.
Here is a description of Monster Hunter Rise taken from the Nintendo eShop.
The critically acclaimed action-RPG series returns to the Nintendo Switch™!
Set in the ninja-inspired land of Kamura Village, explore lush ecosystems and battle fearsome monsters to become the ultimate hunter. It’s been half a century since the last calamity struck, but a terrifying new monster has reared its head and threatens to plunge the land into chaos once again.
Hunt solo or in a party with friends to earn rewards that you can use to craft a huge variety of weapons and armor. Brand new gameplay systems such as the high-flying ‘Wire Action’ and your canine companion ‘Palamute’ will add exciting new layers to the already robust combat that Monster Hunter is known for.
Whether it’s at home, on the go, online or offline – you’ll always be ready for your next hunt on the Nintendo Switch™!
The game will be out on March 26, 2021, for the Nintendo Switch, and early 2022 for the PC.
