Monster Hunter Rise

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.

Check out links and timestamps below and come hang out.

Update (9/22): GameStop has sold out, but Best Buy has just opened pre-orders here.


Original (9/18): Pre-orders for the Monster Hunter Rise Collector’s Edition have started to open. GameStop currently has it here. When other retailers follow up, we’ll add them to this post.

The Monster Hunter Rise Collector’s Edition includes the Deluxe Edition (which goes for $70) plus a few goodies. The extras include the Magnamalo amiibo, enamel pin, and sticker pack.

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

It seems that Japan is getting another exclusive edition of Monster Hunter Rise for the Switch. This special game package, which roughly translates to “Hunting friend double pack,” features two copies of the game (one digital and one physical) as well as some downloadable content. All of this comes in a sleek box for 15,254 yen or around $145. 

It seems the extra content has raised the price, as this double pack is $25 more than what two versions of the game would cost. Roughly translated, what this digital content includes is:

  • Recovery medicine Great x 80
  • Sweetbread trap x 10,
  • Demon dust x 20
  • Hardened dust x 20
  • Life dust x 20
  • Armor ball x 30
  • “Item pack” useful for cooperative play and hunting

Whether or not this is worth it is up to Japanese consumers, as it seems unlikely that this edition will come to the West. It’s specifically marketed towards Switch owners who want to play the game with a friend, so it’s possible that the online play is pretty extensive in the game. 

We’ll just have to see when Monster Hunter Rise launches on March 26, 2021.

According to GameStop’s internal system, the new amiibo will cost the following:

This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, two Nintendo Directs came out and they’re pretty fresh! Monster Hunter Rise and Stories 2 look so tempting, and so many other games have us looking forward to the future. Also, Mario 3D All-stars is apparently emulated, but…is that really a problem? We also throw in some next-gen talk with the recent PS5 price and pre-order situation.
