Nintendo eShop struggles amid Monster Hunter Rise demo release –

Last night’s release of a Monster Hunter Rise demonstration appears to have crashed the Nintendo Switch eShop.

“The server is currently going through upkeep. We apologise for the hassle. Please try once again later on.

“See the Nintendo Support site for more information on server status and upkeep schedules:”

The Nintendo Switch eShop mistake message presently shown.As Monster Hunter fan Matt Wales wrote yesterday, Monster Hunter Rise is due out on 26th March- making this a nice early peek at the video game for fans. It consists of a Basic Training

Quest, strolling gamers through the essentials of the brand-new grapple-like Wire Bug mechanic, plus a Wyvern Riding Training Quest, introducing a freshly announced brand-new function -allowing gamers to hook themselves onto the back of large monsters with iron silk and control their movement, even assaulting other creatures in battle.And once the fundamentals have been mastered, gamers can try some real monster

hunter. There’s a Beginner Quest, entrusting them with slaying a Great Izuchi, and an Intermediate mission, which sees the return of Monster Hunter Generation’s terrific bubble dragon, Mizutsune. These can be played either solo or co-op through local/online play. The demonstration is presently set to end on 31st January -ideally the eShop is back online by then
