Capcomrecently released gameplay moves trailers of Monster Hunter Rise showcasing Gunlance, Charge Blade, Hunting Horn, and Switch Axe. Each with their own move-sets with added Silkbind moves. The game is coming on Switch on March 26, 2021, worldwide.
Dynamic, crushing potential. The Charge Blade weaves together an empowered sword and stout shield to make up a mighty axe. Charge it up in sword mode, then unleash devastating attacks in axe mode. “Counter Peak Performance” is a silkbind attack that readies your shield for incoming attacks; getting hit fills your phials to maximum, priming you for the ultimate counter-attack.
Rhythmic, heart-pounding hits. The Hunting Horn smashes through the charts with powerful moves that stun monsters and buff your hunting party! “Earthshaker” is a head-pounding beat silkbind attack that drives an Ironsilk-bound blade into the target like a stake. Sonic vibrations explode inside the target causing big damage!.
Overwhelming, devastating power. The Great Sword delivers meaty chops with incredible force. Charge its attacks for even more damage! “Power Sheathe” is a silkbind attack comprised of a quick Wirebug-assisted dash and a sheathing motion that boosts your attack for a short time.
Mighty, transformative force. The Switch Axe boasts advanced technology to deliver multiple options: Axe form – fluid motion and hefty hits. Sword form – quick powered-up strikes. Phial effects activated by the sword now also persist in axe form.
“Invincible Gambit” is a silkbind attack that fortifies the hunter, making them immune to flinching or being knocked back by even the fiercest of attacks.

Monster Hunter Rise 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. 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, while also taking advantage of the versatility of the Nintendo Switch system, which allows for hunting anywhere, anytime and with anyone!
In addition to the Standard Edition (physical and digital) of Monster Hunter Rise, a special digital Deluxe Edition will include the Standard Edition of the game, as well as a digital DLC pack voucher that can be redeemed for bonus in-game content such as a “Kamurai” full layered armor set, exclusive gestures, cosmetic items and more.
