A few weeks ago, the inevitable happened and Capcom announced the next entry in their hugely popular Monster Hunter series. While I was already a massive fan of the franchise, this being the first new Monster Hunter game since the series reinvented itself with World is big news. World managed to finally break through to that mainstream western market and finally get non insane people playing the franchise.
Right away, Monster Hunter Rise looks like it might be a combination of the best aspects of the both World and the old style Monster Hunter games of the past. And I’m super excited for it.
