Monster Hunter Rise 'Lance' and 'Long Sword' trailers

Capcom has released a new set of trailers for Monster Hunter Rise introducing the Lance and Long Sword weapons.

Here is an overview of each weapon, via Capcom:


Stoic, poised and precise. The Lance is a weapon with excellent defensive and evasive capabilities. Guard or step-dodge enemy attacks to stay in the offensive as much as possible.

“Twin Vine” is a silkbind attack that tethers you to your target allowing you to swiftly close the gap while guarding!

Long Sword

Cool, calm, and collected. The Long Sword relies on consecutive slashes to charge up the Spirit Gauge, then unleash powerful Spirit Blade attacks, calculated dodges and counterattacks.

“Serene Pose” is a silkbind attack that channels an incoming strike into a swift counterattack.

Previous weapon trailers introduced the Bow and Dual Blades.

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.
