Monster Hunter Rise hits Switch early next year, and will no doubt be on the 'must-have' list of many a Nintendo fan. The beast-busting franchise may have started life on the PlayStation 2, but it arguably found a new level of fame thanks to the Nintendo 3DS, so it's nice to see the Switch get some exclusive love.

If you're keen on this title, then you'll be pleased to learn that Monster Hunter Rise has just gotten a six-minute gameplay trailer which shows off the Great Sword weapon – you can view it above this text.
