This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast 100, both Oni Dino and Galen are exhausted and a little loopy… But there are some great games to talk about. Oni Dino’s been playing Prinny, Can I Really Be the Hero? While Galen’s hopping on the trends with Among Us. There were plenty of new details for games we’re excited about in the news, then we cap things off with a discussion of bad licensed games that we loved anyway.

To celebrate 100 episodes, we’ve opened up a podcast discord for listeners to chill, chat, and make friends. Check out links and timestamps below and come hang out.

Another round of details have been published for Monster Hunter Rise. The latest information batch comes from articles published by 4Gamer, Famitsu, and Game Watch.

Here’s the full roundup, courtesy of Gematsu:

Monster Hunter Rise marks the first time that Capcom is making a game for Switch with RE Engine. But based on new comments from the company, it wasn’t an easy thing to accomplish.

Yasunori Ichinose, the director for Monster Hunter Rise, said to Eurogamer that putting RE Engine on Switch “was definitely a new challenge for us.” A big part of the task was balancing the game’s large maps with no loading, graphics quality, and frame rate.

According to Ichinose:

In an interview with Eurogamer, Monster Hunter Rise producer Ryozo Tsujimoto spoke more about the game’s development. The project has been a long time coming, as it’s been in the works for “about four years in total.”

Tsujimoto told the site:

IGN has published new details about Monster Hunter Rise following an interview with Capcom. The site was able to speak with Monster Hunter Rise producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and director Yasunori Ichinose.

There’s some interesting information, including the fact that you can skip cutscenes, and there will be no voice chat. We have the full rundown of tidbits below.

Update (10/2): This is back up on Amazon after selling out.


Original (10/1): Amazon has just opened pre-orders for the Monster Hunter Rise Collector’s Edition. You can reserve a copy here. Keep in mind that this has been selling out at other retailers.

The Monster Hunter Rise Collector’s Edition includes the game’s Deluxe Edition, enamel pin, stickers, and Magnamalo amiibo.

Monster Hunter Rise launches for Switch on March 26, 2021.

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, Tokyo Game Show 2020 is in full swing and we aim to be your go-to Nintendo podcast of two friends yelling at each other. Age of Calamity and Monster Hunter: Rise are really doing it for us – especially Hyrule Warriors Impa. But until those games come out, we’ve got the big Halloween Animal Crossing update. Also, a mega-corporation buying a developer/publisher that has no problems developing/publishing on their own is never good for consumers.
