Head of Japanese studio declares Monster Hunter Rise release day a day off for all of his employees
The head of the Japanese studio Mark-On, Masaki Hiyama, in his microblog, announced March 26 this year as a day off for all employees of his company in connection with the release of Monster Hunter Rise.
“Monster Hunter Rise (Capcom) will be released on March 26 (Friday). It is assumed that this day will not be able to concentrate on work, so I declare it a Monster Hunter holiday, ”reads Hiyama’s statement.
According to The Huffington Post Japan, in recent weeks, several subordinates have approached Hiyama with a request to write them a day off on March 26 to “immediately play” the new Monster Hunter.
“So we made up our minds and did it, and in return received words of gratitude and appreciation from the staff for giving them time off,” Hiyama commented.
It is noteworthy that in the comments to Hiyama’s post, many Monster Hunter fans would also like to get a day off on the day Monster Hunter Rise was released but were a little less fortunate with their bosses.
A similar situation occurs in Japan with Dragon Quest – the games in the series have attracted so much attention that since the late 90s, they have been released in the country on Saturdays (the only exception in recent years has been Dragon Quest X).
Monster Hunter Rise will be released on March 26 this year on Nintendo Switch, and in early 2022 will appear on PC. Simultaneously, the Amazon online store began sending retail copies of the project to their customers in the middle of the month.
