Capcom has recently been subjected to a serious hack that has revealed a ton of new information about future releases, including the upcoming Switch timed exclusive Monster Hunter Rise.

It’s already been leaked that Monster Hunter Rise will be coming to PC later in 2021 – although Capcom hasn’t officially announced this yet, we should add – but Nintendo has now been revealed to have paid “about $ 6 million” for timed exclusivity. Rise will launch on Switch in March 2021 and is expected to come to PC in October.

That is interesting other documents reveal that Capcom has discussed the game internally total exclusive to Switch, indicating that Nintendo could paid more money to completely lock Rise – but Capcom was careful to keep the game on one system. It is noted that the Switch version will be ‘hard to sell’ in China, but ‘proprietary’ measures would make a PC release there a success.

The hack also revealed that Capcom plans to revive a host of existing titles and bring the two Great Ace Attorney titles to the west.
