  • Monster Hunter Rise will be digital-only release for consoles.
  • Current physical editions are for Nintendo Switch.
  • The title will come to Game Pass on launch.

With the recent announcement for Monster Hunter Rise on Consoles, fans were already ecstatic about playing a brand new entry to the series on modern systems with better visuals and improved controls, but some news could sadden physical collectors of the game as Capcom has announced there are no plans for a physical edition for the console release of the title.

Monster Hunter Rise is a fully digital release on consoles

Monster Hunter Rise is a title that needs little to no introduction. It’s a title that has a very loyal and committed fan base, and with how Monster Hunter Rise was exclusive to the PC and Nintendo Switch for 2 years, the title and its expansion – Sunbreak, are all coming to the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series in January 20th, 2023 for Rise and Sunbreak later in the year.

Unfortunately, Gematsu tweeted the news that the title will also be a digital-only release.

If you were hoping to get a collectors edition or place a physical pre-order for the title at your local EBGames, GAME, GameStop, etc, you won’t be able to.

While this is an unfortunate piece of news, perhaps we can hope for something down the road once Sunbreak releases and Capcom releases a bundle that includes Rise and Sunbreak on a single disc with other DLC for the title included that has previously been released for the titles.

The game will release on Game Pass for PC and Console on launch day on Xbox consoles and PC, with no news if PlayStation Premium or Extra will offer the title to the service or not, but we are highly skeptical on it happening.

What are your thoughts on the news? Let us know in the comments section below if you are still planning on buying the title despite the digital-only news.
