Monster Hunter Rise

The demo for Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise is currently available for Nintendo Switch, free for all who download it via the Nintendo eShop. Unfortunately, due to the demand for the same, the eShop faced severe slowdowns. As noted by Nintendo Japan’s official Twitter, downloads were not starting immediately due to “concentrated” access.

It also advised players not to spam the “Download Demo” button, since this could delay the download by several minutes. However, earlier today servers went down for emergency maintenance. No time frame has been provided for when they’ll be back up.

If you managed to download the demo already, then it’s still very much playable so don’t worry. The demo includes two hunts – Great Tsuchi and Mizutsune – along with training quests for the Wirebug and Wyvern Riding. It will be available until February 1st but has a limited number of quest departures for the hunts.

Monster Hunter Rise will launch on March 26th for the Switch.
