Earlier today, the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller Monster Hunter Rise edition was finally available in the US, so we knew that the special edition Nintendo Switch console package based on the game would not be far behind. That turned out to be the case as pre-orders of the console are now live here on GameStop for $ 369.99. We also expect it to fall here on Best Buy and here on Amazon at any time.
The Monster Hunter Rise Nintendo Switch console has a striking design based on the art of the flagship monster, Magnamalo. It comes with a digital code for the Deluxe Edition of Monster Hunter Rise, which explains the extra price tag of $ 69.99 over a standard switch. That said, if you just want the game, you can pre-order it here at Best Buy with an exclusive SteelBook bonus.
The Deluxe Edition of Monster Hunter Rise includes the following extras:
- Hunter layered armor “Kamurai” set

Monster Hunter Rise is scheduled for release worldwide on March 26, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game here. An official description of the game can be found below.
“Monster Hunter Rise is an action-RPG that will transport players to the colorful Kamura Village, a brand new quiet mountain area that attracts visitors with its unique culture and innovative hunting technology. After hunters equip the armor and choose from one of the different weapon types , brand new hunting areas await, including the ancient sanctuary ruins and more.When players defeat monsters and advance through the game, objects from fallen enemies can be used to create unique weapons and armor that will increase the chances of future success and survival Hunters can tackle these challenges alone, or with up to three other players in local or collaborative online games.
Monster Hunter Rise, which develops the Monster Hunter series, will give players an inventive set of new tools for tracking down and defeating menacing monsters. For the first time ever in a Monster Hunter game, wired grappling actions can be performed using a “Wirebug” while standing or in the air, adding a whole new level of air maneuverability to hunting strategies and attacks. The game will also debut new hunting partners called Palamutes, personal and executable “Canyne” companions that will give players a new set of attack options, while “Felyne” Palicoes will return as supporting characters for actions such as healing. “
