A new trailer for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak has been released as part of the Nintendo Direct Mini showcasing more of the new monsters and content you can expect from the game when it releases on the 30th of June 2022.
The trailer gives up a good look at the new monsters being added to the expansion.
The form taken by Gore Magala once they mature and molt. Gorgeous, glittering scales cover Shagaru Magala, and their divine wings are large enough to wrap around their entire body. According to records, one was once said to have scattered its black scales over an area the size of a mountain, annihilating any and all lifeforms inhabiting that region.
A Magnamalo variant that achieves an even more twisted, malevolent form. Shrouded in Hellfire at all times, they also boast larger arm blades and harder armor plating. During battles, they have been spotted focusing their Hellfire and swinging it like a blade.
A Rajang variant covered in golden fur. Normally Rajang returns to their black-furred state after being agitated for a time to conserve energy, but these beasts have lost the ability to curb their anger. Outclassing the standard Rajang’s attack power, they assault with seething rage. At the apex of their fury, they become enraged and turn into destructive demons with electrified manes.
Capcom has also uploaded a new trailer promoting the upcoming Black Belt S Armor and High-Rank Defender Weapon Tree.
If you’re looking to jump right into the new content added in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, the developers reccomend completing the 7 star Hub Quest “Serpent Goddess of Thunder” from the base games.
You can easily complete the quest using powerful armor that will be released to hunters for free, and will help you to quickly advance the progress of “Monster Hunter Rise” and enjoy Sunbreak’s new hunting experience earlier. You can claim these from Senri the Mailman as soon as you start the game.
This armor includes the Black Belt S which has a defense of 330 (360 when upgraded to maximum). The 14 “Defender” weapons, which are already available in the game, will also get a high rank upgrade tree. If you keep upgrading these weapons as you complete quests, they will become powerful enough to face even high rank monsters.
Capcom also says they are planning multiple, free post-release title updates for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.
Title Update 1 will introduce a new locale known as the “Forlorn Arena,” as well as rare species such as Lucent Nargacuga and Seething Bazelgeuse, among others.
Monster Hunter Rise is available for Switch and PC. The new expansion Sunbreak will be released on the 30th of June.
