The new footage, which has been shown during the latest episode of the Japanese Capcom TV livestream, shows some Great Sword action, an intense hunt and a brand new area. The game, needless to say, looks amazing, considering it is running on Nintendo Switch, a console that is far from being the most powerful gaming hardware around.

Monster Hunter Rise’s reveal back in September was so impressive that many thought the game was not actually running on Nintendo Switch. Director Ryozo Tsujimoto later confirmed that the game was indeed running on the console’s current model. A Switch Pro model would definitely make the game run much better than it will on the regular model, but it’s reassuring to know that all current Switch owners will be able to enjoy the game without issue.

Monster Hunter Rise launches on March 26th, 2021 worldwide exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
