Despite being advertised as a Nintendo Switch exclusive, Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise will also be available to play on the PC next year. The news comes from Capcom Japan Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and Capcom Japan Director Yasunori Ichinose, who revealed to Fanbyte that they were working on a port of the latest installment in the popular monster-slaying action RPG series. Tsujimoto and Ichinose noted that the PC version is “still very much in development,” but Steam users should be able to enjoy it in early 2022.

“[…] while it’s not as dense or lush as MHW, Rise does play fast and fluidly,” Fanbyte reported. “It would easily feel at home on more powerful hardware. Which is exactly what the duo confirmed at the end of our interview. Rise is coming to PC in early 2022. Though it’s ‘still very much in development.'”

Monster Hunter Rise is an all-new Monster Hunter experience developed for the Nintendo Switch,” Capcom explained in a press release. “The game provides a completely fresh take on the hunting experience through new mechanics such as the Wirebug, a wire-based grappling action that allows players to traverse dangerous or rocky terrain at high speeds, as well as with the debut of new hunting partners called Palamutes. The game is currently being developed with Capcom’s proprietary RE ENGINE in order to provide a new, approachable Monster Hunter experience that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere and with anyone.”

Monster Hunter fans who want to get a head start on the new installment can pick up the Nintendo Switch version on March 26, 2021. Another new Monster Hunter game, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, is also coming to the popular hybrid system this summer.
