Capcom is starting to heavily market Monster Hunter Rise as we approach its March 26 release date, starting with two different commercials for the Japanese market.
The two clips are brief – one running for 30 seconds, the other 15 – but offer a glimpse at more footage of Monster Hunter Rise in action. The longer commercial starts out with a panoramic view of a hunter posing on top of building, before cutting away to a bit of combat footage. Several monsters are shown off in the trailer, giving us a sneak peek at some of the behemoths we’ll be taking down in March.
It’s much the same for the 15 second commercial, minus a few monsters. If you watch the 30-second version, nothing new is shown off in its shorter sibling.
Capcom’s commercial ends with a look at the pre-order bonuses for Monster Hunter Rise, which include a Cosmetic Layered Armor for your Palamute and Palico. So if you know you’re going to pick up the next installment of the long-running franchise, you might as well give it a pre-order to earn a few exclusive items.
Monster Hunter Rise will be the first true Switch exclusive for the series. The only other Monster Hunter game on Switch is Generations Ultimate, which is simply an enhanced version of the classic 3DS title. It’s still a fun game, but there’s not a reason to pick it up if you’ve already played the original.
Monster Hunter Rise will launch for Switch on March 26.
