Monster Hunter Rise - Hammer and Sword & Shield Trailers

Capcom has released two new weapon trailers for Monster Hunter Rise showcasing the hard-hitting hammer and the more agile sword and shield. These new trailers follow the release of gameplay trailers for dual blades, bows, lances, longbows, the light bowgun and the heavy bowgun.


Savage, smashing strength. The Hammer is a blunt force weapon that hits hard without giving up mobility. Smack enemies on the head to knock ’em down. “Spinning Bludgeon” is a silkbind attack that unleashes a spinning attack that deals multiple hits while leaping forward. This attack can even be charged up!

Sword and Shield

Nimble, adept, and incredibly versatile. The Sword & Shield is a jack-of-all-trades capable of quick strikes and prompt evades. The shield serves a dual purpose of guarding and delivering bludgeoning damage. “Windmill” is a silkbind attack that uses Ironsilk to swing the sword around for continuous damage, while also protecting the hunter during the initial swing.

Monster Hunter Rise is set to release on March 26, 2021 for Nintendo Switch. A free demo will also be available next month.
