Capcom has announced that the next collaboration event for Monster Hunter Rise will feature Amaterasu from Okami.
Monster Hunter Rise will receive a new Event Quest this week that rewards players with some cool Okami-themed content. The event launches on July 30 and adds Sun Goddess Amaterasu as a Palamute Layered Armor set.
As the spectacular trailer shows, Ammy x Monster Hunter is a match made in heaven. Seeing Amaterasu beautifully rendered in the RE Engine makes us pine for a timeline in which Okami was a huge hit and spawned a host of sequels. (Seriously, if you haven’t played the game, go get it.)
The first Monster Hunter Rise collaboration dropped earlier this month to promote the release of Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin.
Three more ‘collabs’ are planned for 2021. The third is due in August, with two more to follow in the fall. If a Wolf Link Palamute Layered Armor set isn’t part of the 35th-anniversary Legend of Zelda celebrations, we’ll eat our knapsack.
