Nintendo Direct mini Software Lineup 2020.9" was held on Thursday, September 17, 2020 at 23:00.
Various announcements were made, but the two that really caught the attention were " Monster Hunter Rise " and " Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Doom ", the latest in the Monster Hunter series. I think so.
I wanted to know more about the long-awaited new Monster Hunter on Nintendo Switch, but right after the "Nintendo Direct mini Software Maker Lineup 2020.9" ended, the " Monster HunterDirect 2020.9.17 " was delivered!
More detailed information was announced!
Monster Hunter Rise
Monster Hunter Rise" is the latest title in the long-awaited Monster Hunter series to be released on Nintendo Switch.
This title is being produced under the concept of " Monster Hunter Rise" that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere, and with anyone, taking advantage of the ease of use that is one of the features of Nintendo Switch.
"Monster Hunter: World" (MHW) was certainly great, but it's also fun to bring your PSP or 3DS and have fun with everyone, so this is the long-awaited new MonHun game for Nintendo Switch!
New Action "Shou-Mushi
The new action in this title is the " Kakerimushi ", which flies around the player and allows the player to move in any direction and make tricky attacks.
This is a further evolution of MHW's slinger-based wire movement.
With more freedom of movement, just running around the field will be a lot of fun!
As in MHW, the field is seamless from the start of the quest.
If you have played MHW, you already know how fun it is to run around the vast stages and advance through the quests, don't you?
In addition, there are fields where you can take advantage of new actions using the "flying bugs" that appear in this title, so you are sure to discover new places like "I didn't know such places existed.
New Field "Ruins of a Grand Shrine
The field shown in the PV is the new field " Ruins of the Grand Shrine ".
As the name suggests, the field is dotted with the ruins of shrines.
There are various discoveries to be made in the field, but not much can be said about it yet! Let's wait for more information!
New "Garruk" (a new otomo)
MonHun is all about the otomo, the people you can count on to help you in your quests.
In addition to the well-known "Airou," a new otomo, " Garuku," will appear in this title!
Garuku" is an otomo that can carry a hunter around on its back. While riding Garuku, the hunter's stamina will not be depleted!
In MHW, moving around in the seamless field can be a bit of a hassle at times, so having Gulk on your back will make it easier!
Moreover, since I can recover and use some items while riding Garuku, it will be useful when temporarily evacuating from large monsters.
Garuku is an attack type otomo, so it will support you with attacks when fighting monsters.
It looks like he'll work in tandem with his support-type ayru to aid in the hunt!
You can take two otomo with you when playing alone, but you can choose any combination of Garuku and Airou.
You can take one otomo each, or you can take two Garuku and two Airu, so you can choose according to the field and the compatibility with large monsters.
In multiplayer, you can only take one otomo, so it will be fun to discuss which one to take with your friends who play together!
New Large Monsters
New large monsters that will appear in "Monster Hunter Rise" have also been announced!
The new monsters include the " Grudge Tiger Dragon Magaimagado ", the " Umbrella Bird Akenosirum ", the " Kamaitachi Ryu Okaizuchi ", and the "Amphibian Frog Yotsumiwadou "!
The PV gave a brief explanation, but large monsters must be fought!
We can't wait to see what kind of attacks they will launch and what kind of behavior patterns they will display!
When there are multiple large monsters in close proximity, they may fight with each other, but the game is being developed in such a way as to give birth to a new kind of fun!
In addition to the monsters announced this time, there will be other familiar monsters and even more new monsters, so let's wait for more news!
Kamura no Sato, the base of operations
The base of this adventure will be " Kamra no Sato".
It has a Japanese-style atmosphere similar to the village of Yukumo in Monster Hunter Freedom 3.
What kind of village and what kind of people live there? What kind of people are there, and what kind of story will be spun? I am looking forward to hearing more!
I'm curious about the words " Hundred Dragons and Night Parade " that the chief-like person is talking about....
