The Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase for September 2020 started off with a bang with revealing the trailers for Monster Hunter: Rise (set to release March 26th, 2021) and Monster Hunter Stories 2 (set to release the summer of 2021). After this news, they announced that there would be a Monster Hunter Direct.
After that, they announced a sequel to Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm & Exercise (available December 4th, but can be pre-ordered today), Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny (available Summer 2021), Empire of Sin, Sniper Elite 4 (available Holiday 2020), The Long Dark (available later today), PGA Tour 2K21 (physical version available September 25th), Hades (available later today), Balan Wonderworld (available March 26th, 2021), Rune Factory 5 (available in 2021), finally, Ori and the Will of the Wisps will be coming to Nintendo Switch today!
Overall, I say this was a great mini direct! Sure I wasn’t hyped for every single title. However, as someone who has never played a Monster Hunter game, Monster Hunter Rise has me tempted to try it out!
