EDITOR'S NOTE: Monster Hunter Rise won a "highly recommended" honor for most rewarding challenge at the Tom's Guide Awards 2021 for gaming.

Monster Hunter Rise has been one of the most awaited Switch releases of the year, and Nintendo is marking its launch with not one but two limited edition items. A limited-edition Nintendo Switch console and a custom pro controller.

It comes in the wake of the Switch Mario Red and Blue console and the Switch Animal Crossing console, both of which released in the last 12 months. It’s fair to say that Nintendo has gone a tad console crazy recently. Both of those limited edition consoles have become pretty difficult to track down since release, and it seems like the supply of the Nintendo Switch Monster Hunter Rise Edition is already struggling to meet the demand.  

However, Nintendo is going a step further this time and also releasing a limited edition Switch Pro Controller. Dubbed the Switch Pro Controller Monster Hunter Rise Edition, it’s the perfect accessory for your special edition Switch console.  

Both limited edition products released alongside the game itself on March 26. Unfortunately with stock selling out at the pre-order stage at a rapid pace, it looks like these will become yet more gaming items that are very difficult to get hold of without braving the resellers market and paying well over the odds. 

To help prevent you from having to pay more than the MSRP, we’ve put together this rundown of where you can buy the Nintendo Switch Monster Hunter Rise Edition as well as the Switch Pro Controller Monster Hunter Rise Edition. 

Do note that the stock situation is likely to change at a moment’s notice, so we’ll keep this page updated as retailers sell out and restock. If however, you’re just after a regular Switch then have a look at our guide for where to buy the Nintendo Switch for help getting hold of a standard console.

What is the Nintendo Switch Monster Hunter Rise Edition 

Released simultaneously with the Monster Hunter Rise game on Nintendo Switch, this limited edition Switch is a great pickup for fans of the series or those just looking for a Switch with some very cool custom artwork. 

Every single component has been given a Monster Hunter-themed makeover. The Joy-Con controllers are the classic grey models but with custom graphics, including a few flecks of gold that really make them stand out. 

The Switch console itself has been decked out with Monster Hunter artwork on the rear, and even the docking station has been given a fresh coat of paint in the form of a massive golden dragon, who’s apparently called Magnamalo. 

For some bizarre reason, neither the Animal Crossing Switch nor the Super Mario Switch included a copy of the game they released alongside, but thankfully that’s not the case here as you do get a digital download code for Monster Hunter Rise included in the bundle. 

Furthermore, you’ll also get a code for some deluxe DLC, which is a nice little extra to help make this bundle truly stand out among some of the more lackluster efforts we’ve seen from Nintendo in recent years. 

The Switch Pro Controller Monster Hunter Rise Edition also comes sporting a decal of Magnamalo and is perfect for any Monster Hunter fans who already have a Switch so don’t need a whole new console.
