Capcom has released a new set of trailers for Monster Hunter Rise introducing the Hammer and Sword & Shield weapons.
Here is an overview of each weapon, via Capcom:
Savage, smashing strength. The Hammer is a blunt force weapon that hits hard without giving up mobility. Smack enemies on the head to knock ’em down.
“Spinning Bludgeon” is a silkbind attack that unleashes a spinning attack that deals multiple hits while leaping forward. This attack can even be charged up!
Sword & Shield
Nimble, adept, and incredibly versatile. The Sword & Shield is a jack-of-all-trades capable of quick strikes and prompt evades. The shield serves a dual purpose of guarding and delivering bludgeoning damage. #MHRise
“Windmill” is a silkbind attack that uses Ironsilk to swing the sword around for continuous damage, while also protecting the hunter during the initial swing.
Monster Hunter Rise is due out for Switch on March 26, 2021 worldwide. A limited-time demo is due out on January.
