Monster Hunter Rise ‘Bow’ and ‘Dual Blades’ trailers

Two weapons introduced.

Monster Hunter Rise

Capcom has released a new set of trailers for Monster Hunter Rise introducing the Bow and Dual Blades weapons.

Here is an overview of each weapon, via Capcom:


Swift, elegant, and precise. The Bow combines high mobility and rapid attacks to rain down a constant stream of arrows onto monsters.

“Herculean Draw” is a silkbind attack that surges you forward in a designated direction and uses Ironsilk to empower your attacks.

Dual Blades

Lithe, agile, and relentless. The Dual Blades deliver an onslaught of slices in rapid succession.

“Piercing Bind” is a silkbind attack that pierces targets with a detonating kunai. Landing further hits where the kunai is lodged racks up extra damage that scales with each hit.

Monster Hunter Rise is due out for Switch on March 26, 2021 worldwide. A limited-time demo is due out on January.

Watch the trailers below.
