Monster Hunter Rise producer confirms a PC version is set to arrive next year

While Nintendo Switch owners will only have to wait a few weeks for Monster Hunter Rise to release on March 26th, those who are dreaming of a PC version of the game will get their wish, only much, much later. According to producer Ryozo Tsujimoto, the game will be making its way to PC next year:

“We received a lot of requests for a PC version of Monster Hunter Rise, particularly from overseas players, and so we have decided to develop a version for PC, which we aim to release in early 2022. This is still under development, so I’d like to share more detailed information when the time is right.”

This news will likely not come as a surprise to some, as Capcom was the victim of a ransomware attack in November that yielded a significant number of leaks including the first word of Rise’s PC version existing. The attack wasn’t only about games reveals, least the hack be confused as a benign dig for gaming information, as it also included names, emails, and personal information for employees in Capcom’s Japan, US and Canada offices.

I don’t consider a year to be “much, much later”. I tend to play new games a few months after they are released anyway, after it has had time to fix things, release upcoming content patches, the modding community has found its footing, etc; for me this results in an objectively better (and often less expensive) experience.

Can’t wait to deal with content updates and events being confusing and out of sync all over again.

Though I know the lead platform is Switch it will be really weird if the graphics are much worse than MHW on PC. I’m sure we’ll get the best textures they have and consistent framerates/resolutions but the environments look pretty sparse compared to MHW.

I’m hoping this is a more casual friendly version of the game. I do enjoy MHW, but at times I felt like I could use a bit of a breather sometimes. Will have to look into this more, but hearing that the PC port is getting additional development time is a great start.

I still long for another Toukiden title. Huge fan of that series, it’s a great little lower budget MH-esque game with a neat enough little story and it’s a lot more approachable IMO. The second one added a pretty solid “open world” after the first was mostly just boss fights. That and it has cute little magical foxes, they’re the best.

We’ll have to see. I was just talking to someone new to the series about their experience with the demo and, thus far, it does feel like MHW was more accessible, but there are some features in Rise that might make multiplayer easier.

I’d never heard of Toukiden before, but once it got past the first weapon or two which made it look like an MH clone, it really started to look interesting. Granted, MHR is moving more into that Z-axis now, but Toukiden’s seemed built-in better. I’ll have to keep my eyes open for a new one.

I hope it’s better than World was when it first came to PC!

A less archaic system for multiplayer would be nice too

I’m still confused how the keyboard-mouse controls are so completely terrible. Okay, the game was made for consoles. But it’s like the developers have never even *heard of* any other games using keyboard-mouse, let alone played them.

Which makes me sad, since I can’t stand using a controller and can’t get to grips with the system they did put in for keyboard-mouse. :(

That´s great news thank you Capcom for not making it Nintendo Tits only.
