Monster Hunter Rise’s new demo has recently rolled out, a spiritual successor to the critically acclaimed Monster Hunter: World. World deviated from the rest of the series in many ways, trying to be more of an accessible game for newcomers and returning players. Well, not only was World the most accessible Monster Hunter game we have seen in a while, but it also went on to become Capcom’s best-selling game to date. There was one unfortunate caveat, as Nintendo Switch owners never received a port to World or its expansion Iceborne. Well, that’s where Monster Hunter Rise fits in.

While it’s not official, there is a high chance we will see a direct sequel to World. This puts Rise as somewhat of a filler between World and its hypothetical sequel. That doesn’t mean Rise will be without its own merit, as the demo offered a balance of the classic Monster Hunter titles, and the more refined experience of World. Many of the changes are really welcome, while some still have a ways to go.
