Here are six minutes of new Monster Hunter Rise gameplay

Switch it up.

Capcom has released six minutes of new Monster Hunter Rise gameplay.

The video, below, gives us a brief overview of the flow of a hunt, wielding a Great Sword and with two Palamutes. The target is the bird wyvern Aknosom, in the Shrine Ruins. "Aknosom is a tricky foe," Capcom said, "but thankfully, the Great Sword has a few new tricks up its sleeve."

Monster Hunter Rise is the Nintendo Switch exclusive entry in the hugely successful series, due out on 26th March 2021.

It's the series' debut in Capcom's RE Engine - indeed, it's the RE Engine's debut on the Switch - and the first proper dedicated Monster Hunter for Nintendo's hybrid device following the port of the 3DS' Generations back in 2018.

Martin's in-depth Monster Hunter Rise preview has a lot more information.
