Both of these weapon types have been in the series for a while now, with dual blades being in the very first Monster Hunter on PS2.
The trailers show off each weapon’s moveset, and they seem to retain most of the attacks available in previous games.
Silkbind attacks, moves that make use of Rise’s new wirebug mechanic, are the main change to how you’ll use weapons. For example, bow users can power up their attacks with herculean draw, while dual blades have access to even more mobility with shrouded vault.
Monster Hunter Rise launches for the Switch on March 26, 2021. If you’re after some extra goodies, the game’s Collector’s Edition comes with a few physical items, including a Magnamalo amiibo.
