By the end of 2021, the game sold over 2.3 million units in Japan alone, becoming one of the best-selling Switch titles of the year.

Capcom released the PC version of Monster Hunter Rise on January 13, 2022. The PC version is almost the exact same as the Switch version in terms of content. Key improvements include 4K resolution, 60 FPS, and the ability to change graphics quality. The PC version also features various new filters based on old Japanese cinema.

Monster Hunter Rise is immediately available for the Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam. The game’s first major expansion, Sunbreak, will release sometime in Summer 2022. Capcom will also release three new Sunbreak amiibo.
