Capcom has announced that the lead composer for Monster Hunter Rise‘s original soundtrack is Satoshi Hori, the same composer responsible for some of the music that haunted many a player in 2017’s Resident Evil 7. The publisher announced its next Monster Hunter adventure in September during a Nintendo Direct presentation. Nintendo Switch players can expect the title to release in full come late March 2021.
Interestingly, the Rise subtitle is derived from an all-new wall-climbing mechanic, which will add a healthy helping of verticality to the overall experience. And, much like Monster Hunter World and Iceborne before it, Capcom has already confirmed that post-launch support in the form of free content updates is on the docket. Now Monster Hunter faithful have something equally exciting to look forward to, an OST from Satoshi Hori.

A post via Monster Hunter Rise’s official Japanese Twitter account (via Gaijinhunter) has unveiled that Resident Evil 7 composer, Satoshi Hori, is hard at work on crafting the sound for Monster Hunter’s next outing. According to Gaijinhunter, a Facebook interview referenced by the Rise account’s tweet confirms that all songs, including pre-existing Monster Hunter tracks, will receive a chorus.
A relative newcomer to the industry, Satoshi Hori’s first video game credit is for another Capcom-published title, the Android/iOS game known as Tsukuren H. Thus, Resident Evil 7 counts as the composer’s first major project of note. Now he’s graduated to the world of Monster Hunter. It would seem, then, that fans are in for quite the treat next spring. Notably, Hori didn’t return to craft music for Resident Evil Village.
Apart from a new lead composer, Monster Hunter fans have plenty to look forward to come 2021. For one, a free demo for Monster Hunter Rise is scheduled to go live on the Nintendo Switch on an unspecified date next month. The publisher revealed this much and more during a rather lengthy gameplay trailer at The Game Awards 2020. At the time of writing, however, Capcom has yet to confirm if the free trial will only be available for a limited period of time. Other questions in need of answers concern the game’s supposed PC version. This particular detail surfaced due to leaked Capcom documents that suggest a PC port of Monster Hunter Rise is in the works. Again, Capcom remains mum on the matter.
