Monster Hunter Anniversary Week to stream 3 events for Rise and Stories 2, including dev Q&A

Monster Hunter Rise Stories 2 digital event livestream director Q&A Capcom community hunting tutorials Wings of Ruin Anniversary Week

Following the Nintendo Direct, there are plenty of exciting games new and old on the horizon, like Mario Golf: Super Rush and Legend of Mana. But prior to that event, the big kahuna in Nintendo Switch’s current release future was without a doubt Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise, which launches on March 26. Now, Capcom has announced three separate events featuring Monster Hunter Rise as well as Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin for earlier in March, beginning with a general digital event on March 8. March 9 will see Rise gameplay, hunting tutorials, and Q&A with director Yasunori Ichinose. Finally, March 11 will be a community livestream. These events are all for Monster Hunter Anniversary Week.

Notably, Ichinose might answer your Rise question if you reply to Capcom’s tweet below with what you want to ask.

Capcom announced Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin simultaneously at a Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase back in September, with the latter receiving fewer details and not scheduled to launch until summer. Hopefully, the three events that compose Monster Hunter Anniversary Week will provide many more juicy details on Stories 2, especially since it will essentially be taking the spotlight once Rise launches.

Stay tuned for any big details from Monster Hunter Anniversary Week next month.
