As is the common go-to for Nintendo with big releases, that means we’re getting a special edition console bundle. This time a Monster Hunter Rise Switch bundle will feature a black Switch console with unique designs. The console features gold and black runes on its surface and Joy-Cons. The console bundle will be launching on March 26. There is a downside for fans though, as the console bundle is a Japan-only option.
The Monster Hunter Rise Switch bundle will be sold from Japanese retailers for 38,400 yen, and hardcore fans will want to pick it up, It features an illustration of Magnamalo, the new featured beast. And of course, there’s a copy of the game and a pass for the planned DLC content. The console bundle isn’t all we’re getting though.
The console bundle includes a DLC Deluxe Kit. This includes some special armor pieces like the Shuriken Collar and Fish Collar armor pieces. There are also some cosmetic items in the pack as well. There is custom Kabuki face paint and a Izuchi Tail hairstyle that you can style your hunter with. You also get some unique gestures and poses to use in-game too.
Additionally, a Pro controller bundle will be on offer as well. The Pro controller has the similar design to the custom console shell. The MHR Pro controller is also exclusive to Japan.
Both the Monster Hunter Rise Edition Switch and Pro Controller will be up for pre-order on February 27. Monster Hunter Rise comes out for the Nintendo Switch on March 26, 2021.
That demo of the Switch game is still up for a bit, so go try it out. The demo and the full game will include new and returning monsters, as well as a bunch of new gear and weapons. There’s a ton of anticipation for that new demo, so much in fact that it crashed the eShop when it came out.
