Monster Hunter Rise - New Monsters

New Monster Info

English names for Monsters marked with ※ are not yet known. Instead we've written the transliterations of their Japanese names!!

Check Out All New Monsters Here

Returning Monsters

The Signature Monster: Magnamalo

Click to Enlarge

Spearheading all of the new monster additions in Monster Hunter Rise we have the Magnamalo. This menacing creature will be the game's "main" monster, and can be seen fighting a Tobi Kadachi, and seems to play a prominent role in the game's story.

Attacks With Its Tail?

Magnamalo Tail
Click to Enlarge

In the trailer we saw the Magnamalo's tail grow purple and fly towards the Tobi Kadachi. We're not sure exactly how it will make use of its tail to attack, but it's clear that it will play a part in this monster's attack patterns.

Monster Hunter Rise - New Actions

New Tool: The Wirebug


The Wirebug is a new type of tool that will change how you see the world of Monster Hunter Rise! It acts like a grappling hook which allows you to traverse steep rocky terrain, zip around open areas, and even combine it with moves to create devastating attacks!

Check Out The Wirebug Here

Barrel Bombs Mid-Air?


One interesting addition to the game is that you seem to be able to throw barrel-bombs while mid air, leading to as massively powerful explosion!

New Moves For All Weapons


Each Monster Hunter weapon type is seeing additions in temrs of new special abilities. Thanks to the Wirebug, you'll find your overall versatility go up as you get brand new ways to use your favorite weapons.

List Of All Weapons

Monster Hunter Rise - New Systems

Endemic Life Helps You Hunt


Hunting Helpers are a new type of Endemic Life that will, as the name suggests, aid you in your hunt! They can be used as items and grant you boons, or be used to grant effects on monsters.

Check Out Endemic Life In Detail Here

Camps Are Same As MHW


Camps appear to function in the same way as they did in the most recent game in the franchise, Monster Hunter World. You can change equipment and items, even during the middle of a quest, providing you a respite from otherwise tough challenges.

New Pets: Cahoots


Cahoots are adorable owl creatures which will join up with you on your quest. They are reminiscent of Poogies from previous games, as they'll be able to communicate with you! Additionally, they'll alert you to the location of monsters in the wild as well!

Monster Hunter Rise - New Buddies

Overview Of Companions

Palamute・Good offensive capabilities
・Can get around by riding them
Palicoes・Provides a wide range of support

New Buddy: Palamutes


The Palamute is a new companion you can bring along in Monster Hunter Rise. They are canine-like creatures which are large enough for you to ride! This means you'll be using them as a means of transportation, since you won't consume any stamina while riding them!

Also Attack Monsters

When you're not riding on a Palamute, they'll be able to assist you in battle by fighting monsters. Palamutes are more suited for battle than Palicos!

New Features For Palicoes As Well


Palicoes will of course be coming to Monster Hunter Rise. It seems this time around they'll be providing a more supportive role, to better contrast with Palamutes. Though we're not sure of the details, it seems that by popping a bubble with a paw mark on it, you'll gain various supportive buffs!

Can Have Up To 2 Buddies At A Time

It will be possible to bring a maximum of 2 buddies along with you on your quests. You can choose a combination that best suits your playstyle, meaning you can have two Palamutes, just one, or none if you so choose!

Posisble To Design Your Own Buddy


You'll be able to choose the fur color, eye shape, and other features of your buddy as well. You'll likely be fighting alongside each other for quite a while, so it might be worth spending some extra time on the character creator to make your companion look exactly how you want it to!

Monster Hunter Rise - New Areas

The Shrine Ruins


The Shrine Ruins are a place surrounded by mountains and forests with a dark and lonely atmosphere. It was said that there are plenty of discoveries to be made in this mysterious place, so it will no doubt be quite worthwhile to explore!

Loadless Travel Between Areas


Monster Hunter Rise will employ seamless travel between areas, without needing to load! You'll be able to get from zone to zone smoothly, just like in MHW: Iceborne.

Flooded Forest Is Back


First making its appearance in Monster Hunter 3, the Flooded Forest is returning for Monster Hunter Rise! The giant ruins that abound the area will no doubt make perfect targets for your Wirebug, allowing you to traverse the zone freely.

New Area - Kamura Village

Click to Enlarge

Kamura Village seems to be one of the most pivotal locations in Monster Hunter Rise. The atmosphere is clearly inspired by traditional Japanese architecture - made particularly evident by the brilliant castle in the village. Kamura will also have many of the facilities players are used to seeing, such as the Smithy.

The Rampage & Its Effects


Kamura village seems to have been beset by the terrible Rampage. This was an event where hoards of monsters attacked the village - it seems that your goal in Monster Hunter Rise will be to prevent this Rampage from happening to the village again!
