Today the “Monster Hunter Spotlight” event took place as part of the Tokyo Game Show 2021. Of course, this also offered all kinds of news about the current offshoot Monster Hunter Rise. Starting with the announcement of new collaborations, an update to the Steam version and new information about the expansion solar time.
Capcom Collaboration #5
But one by one. Capcom took the opportunity to enter into the following partnership for Monster Hunter Rise to announce. Having already given us crossover events with Ōkami, Street Fighter and, most recently, Mega Man, we are now joining Ghost ‘n Goblins Resurrection to the cooperation team.
Of the October 29, 2021 players have the option to earn new layered armor as part of an event quest. This allows them to slip into the role of “Ghost ‘n Goblins” protagonist Arthur. In addition to the new look, players can also expect appropriate custom animations in the style of the template.
Another collaboration has already been proposed. In the course of the 30th anniversary there will be a crossover Sonic the hedgehog. More information about this will follow at a later date.
Steam version date and demo
Until now, PC gamers have looked enviously in the direction of Switch – at least when it comes to Monster Hunter Rise. That’s coming to an end soon: the Steam version of the title is expected on January 12, 2022 go to the beginning. That’s still a while, but it’s possible from then on October 13, 2021 the chance to taste the PC version – then a demo will appear via Steam.
Of course, the PC version has some attractive features. Players can expect ultra-wide display support and in-game voice chat. You can also expect 4K resolution and higher frame rates compared to the Switch version. It must be worth the wait. A pre-order is now possible via Steam possible.
Update for the “Sunbreak” expansion
Monster Hunter fans should be especially excited about the – I quote – “giant expansion” Sunbreak. Capcom didn’t bring too gigantic news about this in the course of the spotlight – but there was still some fresh information.
“Sunbreak” offers a new base, new locations, fresh monsters and new gameplay elements. Unfortunately, the new gameplay has not been disclosed. But for the fact that the Elder Dragon, Malzeno, takes credit and replaces Magnamalo as the flagship monster. In addition to new monsters, several familiar beasts also have to celebrate their return. Like the nasty shellfish Shogun Ceanataur.
The professional hunters among you will also be happy to hear that “Sunbreak” introduces the master rank in Monster Hunter Rise. This should create serious challenges for the future. But there wasn’t much more information about “Sunbreak” – so the rule is: wait and drink tea.
