Details are currently scant, but Capcom has announced that it’s aiming to bring Monster Hunter Rise to PC in early 2022. The game will be released on the Nintendo Switch next month.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.


Dumb question, but as someone who hasn’t really played these games: why would anyone play this over World, which is by all initial appearances a better-looking and more full-featured game? Like, if one’s a Switch exclusive, the portability is a factor, but if you have a PC why would you pick Rise over World?
