Developer and tech enthusiast Thomasnet_mc has informed Nintendo fans on Twitter that the company is in the process of updating its NEX multiplayer server system, which the company has been using for the past eighteen years. The NEX system is going to be switched over to the newer NPLN system. He notes that it is currently in a preview phase at the Kyoto-based company. The first game to test the new system is Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise. The new service was trialed in the Monster Hunter Rise demo which first became available on 7th January 2021. It is not clear whether we should expect huge improvements, but the multiplayer mode in the Monster Hunter Rise demo was apparently a success.
