Capcom’s final announcement from this year’s Game Awards was a big one, showing a fresh look at the next title in the Monster Hunter series. The new trailer for Monster Hunter Rise introduced new monsters, brought back some familiar ones, and a “Rampage” threatening Kamura Village.

The two new creatures are Bishaten and Somnacanth. They’ll be attacking with thrown persimmons and sleep-inducing toxins respectively. Other monsters featured in the trailer include the Royal Ludroth and the Great Wroggi, and a Flooded Forest area will be a new hunting ground.

For anyone excited or curious about the game, Capcom announced a demo will be arriving this January. While specifics weren’t given, it’ll be a great way to test out the Wirebug and Palamute mechanics that are brand new to this one. Monster Hunter Rise (and its amiibo) will be available for Switch on March 26th.
