Today, at the time of writing, Capcom demonstrated another Monster Hunter Digital Event, in which they’ve revealed two new trailers for fans of the series! Monster Hunter series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and Monster Hunter Rise director Yasunori Ichinose provided details on what’s in store for each title.
The first trailer was for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. Within the trailer, we see a first look at a mysterious light that somehow causes monsters to break out in an enraged frenzy, a detailed look at new eggs found in Monster Dens, and the Rite of Channeling feature. This new feature allows players to build entirely unique collections of Monstie companions when the game finally launches on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam on July 9th, 2021.
The trailer also teased new story details about the protagonist’s connection with Razewing Ratha, the whereabouts of their grandfather the legendary Monster Rider Red, and some returning characters from Monster Hunter Stories. While we are still unsure, of course, about the connection between all of these things, we do know that our Battle Buddy Avinia and her Monstie Frostfang will be making their return from Monster Hunter Stories to help unravel the entire mystery.
The second trailer was for Monster Hunter Rise, where viewers received an early look at the monstrous new content we can expect to see in Ver. 3.0, the second free title update. This highly anticipared update will introduce two more new monsters to the game and will include a new ending to the game’s storyline, new quests, new weapon and armor options, new skills, and more.
For fashion-forward hunters, DLC Pack 3 will be available for purchase today and will include even more new voice options, gestures, hairstyles, sticker sets, background music and more! In June, July and August, players can look forward to expanding their Monster Hunter Rise experience even further with new collaboration quests, additional event quests and other extra content that will be revealed soon.
