Monster Hunter Rise is the latest entry to Capcom’s long-running Monster Hunter series of action role-playing games. It continues the franchise’s gameplay of hunting ferocious wyverns and elder dragons and using obtained materials to craft a myriad of powerful weapons and armor.
Story and Setting
Monster Hunter Rise takes place in Kamura Village nestled in a vast and beautiful mountain locale. Despite the settlement’s serene atmosphere, villagers train day by day to prepare for an event called the Rampage where monsters attack the Kamura all at once.
Kamura Village is home to a colorful cast of characters, including artisans, merchants, and the hunters guild tasked with missions to protect the village and ensure its survival.
New monsters make their debut in Monster Hunter Rise, including the game’s flagship monster Magnamalo. Described as an extremely aggressive fanged wyvern, Magnamalo attacks hunters and other monsters alike with relentless force.
Magnamalo has extremely powerful legs that allow it to leap and perform a variety of devastating attacks. Among its most distinguishing combat features, however, are the purple flames it generates around its body called “Hellfire” to shoot massive fireballs that home in on targets. It can also infuse its tail with purple flames to execute swift thrust and swipe attacks.
Great Izuchi is the pack leader of Izuchi which are the game’s primary small carnivores found throughout the forests. As with previous alpha versions of the species, the Great Izuchi attacks together with its lesser kin to overwhelm its prey.
Tetranadon is a large amphibian capable of swallowing anything in front of it, even large monsters like Arzuros. Upon devouring food, Tetranadon’s belly will swell, causing it to move slower but gains access to more powerful attacks.
The bird-like Aknosom sports an elaborate collar around its head which fans out to guard against attacks or smash enemies. The wyvern also has the peculiar habit of standing on one leg, likening it to a large crane.
Bishaten is a mischievous fanged wyvern that likes to feed on fruit, though it is omnivorous in nature. In battle, Bishaten will use its powerful tail as a bat to launch fruit projectiles at targets. A good supply of fruits are also kept in Bishaten’s belly pouch, allowing it to shoot enemies at any time during battle.
The leviathan wyvern that is occasionally seen cresting on moonlit nights. Despite having a graceful appearance, it is extremely aggressive and will attack trespassers on sight. Somnacanth can release a mysterious gas from an organ on its neck that lulls enemies to sleep, rendering them helpless to follow-up attacks.
The Wirebug is a grappling hook-like tool that is used for easily traverse the map. It functions somewhat similarly to the Slinger grappling hook introduced in Monster Hunter: World. The Wirebug also grants the hunter a number of new actions which are Wiredash, Wall Run, Wirefall, and Silkbind Attacks.
Wyver Riding allows hunters to mount large monsters and temporarily “control” them in battle against other wyverns. This is done by attacking monsters using the Wirebug, letting monsters fight each other, or using the surroundings to get the wyvern into a “mountable state.”
Mounted Punishers are powerful moves that a mounted Wyvern can perform when its Wyvern Riding Gauge is full. To fill up the gauge, you must attack enemy monsters while Wyvern Riding. Each monster has a unique Mounted Punisher that may be effective against certain types of enemies so be sure to try them all out.
Palamutes are a new type of companion in Monster Hunter Rise that fight alongside hunters during quests. They can also be mounted to move around the map faster without consuming stamina. It is possible to use consumable items while riding Palamutes as well, making them even more useful when adventuring in the open world.
The hunter’s Palamute can be customized, including its coat, eyes, ears, tail, and voice.
