Capcom to reveal more details on Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2 cross-over bonuses next month

A bit more patience is needed

We know that players of both Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2 will get some neat goodies as a bit of cross-promotion between the two games, but just what are those items? It seems we'll have to wait another month to find out. Capcom's Ryozo Tsujimoto teased the reveal in an interview with Nintendo Life.

The way it works is if you’ve played and have saved data for either game on your system, you can get some nice unlockables. As to what those unlockables are exactly, we’ll have more to share next month!

Capcom talks about how the pandemic impacted Monster Hunter Rise's development

A welcome change

Capcom originally wanted to have Monster Hunter Rise out a bit earlier, but the pandemic caused them to make some big shifts at the office. All games being worked on at the time were impacted, but now studios have come to work with the situation.

In an interview with Dtoid, producer Ryozo Tsujimoto talked about the pandemic's impact on Monster Hunter Rise. Obviously there were some big changes behind the scenes, but it sounds like the end result actually worked out quite well.

Basically, one of the major changes...all of the meetings are done online, digitally through Zoom or Teams. We hardly ever meet in person anymore. That's helped a lot for us. We've been successful with that, and I hope to see more studios use that method.

Monster Hunter Rise Switch exclusivity will remain intact for roughly a year, heading to PC in early 2022

Rising up on PC

The Switch will be the only console you'll see Monster Hunter Rise on, but you'll eventually be able to pick it up somewhere else. In an interview with IGN Japan, producer Ryozo Tsujimoto confirmed that a PC port is in the works.

“We received a lot of requests for a PC version of Monster Hunter Rise, particularly from overseas players, and so we have decided to develop a version for PC, which we aim to release in early 2022. This is still under development, so I’d like to share more detailed information when the time is right.”

Monster Hunter World originally saw release on XB1/PS4, but a PC version was made roughly a year and a half later. The situation for Monster Hunter Rise appears to be similar. At least Switch fans can enjoy a year+ knowing Nintendo's platform is the only place to play the game.

Thanks to Sligeach_eire for the heads up!
