Monster Hunter is a series that started with its first title back in 2004, where it established a new genre in which players cooperate to hunt ferocious monsters with their friends. The game has since grown into a global phenomenon with more games releasing over the years. As of December 31, 2020, the series has crossed 55 million units shipped worldwide.

Here is the official description of the game as provided by Capcom,

Monster Hunter Rise is an all-new Monster Hunter title for Nintendo Switch. The game was developed with Capcom’s proprietary RE ENGINE in order to provide a new, accessible Monster Hunter experience that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere and with anyone. In addition to new monsters and locales, the game provides a completely fresh take on the hunting experience through a host of new, exhilarating hunting actions made possible with the Wirebug. With this, players can traverse terrain at high speed, or even bind monsters and control them. Further adding to the excitement is the debut of new “canyne” hunting partners called Palamutes. The title garnered critical acclaim following the release of two demos featuring both local and online cooperative play prior to launch, with resulting shipments exceeding 5 million units one week since release.
