The Nintendo Switch Monster Hunter Rise Edition features an image of Magnamalo, the game’s flagship monster, on the dock, along with other evocative Monster Hunter Rise-themed designs that adorn the console and both Joy-Con controllers. It also comes bundled with a download code for Monster Hunter Rise plus the Deluxe Kit DLC* and bonus content. The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Monster Hunter Rise Edition is sold separately, and also features a striking Magnamalo design.

A free demo of Monster Hunter Rise is available until 31st January.

Two of the quests can be tackled with other players in local or online co-op multiplayer.
