The Game Awards 2021 plays host once more to many a trailer premiere, and Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak was no different this time. Sunbreak is the upcoming expansion to Monster Hunter Rise, expected to release Summer 2022.
Our new monster’s scaly hide seem like it can flare out its protrusions, besides being one icy boy and presumably nocturnal. Going by the glimpse of Elgado below, the icy mountains seem quite close to the port Outpost, but it’ll probably be a while yet before you’ll be able to meet this monster, who can say? Capcom has confirmed its name to be Lunagaron, so start making your guesses.
Of course, The Game Awards teaser for Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak also gave glimpses at a new cast. There’s a mention of royalty, so is it a royal decree that brought you here? The new lady definitely deserves many new fanworks as soon as possible.
Last but not least, amiibo for Sunbreak have been revealed, with a Palamute “Canyne Malzeno X”, Malzeno itself and Palico “Felyne Malzeno X”. Each will unlock a special layered armor when utilized in the expansion.
Keep a look out for more information regarding the poster monster, the characters, and whatever else that is to come.
