Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak introduces a vampire dragon

During the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak digital event, Capcom showed off a brand new trailer featuring older and new monsters. The clip featured the expansion’s flagship dragon, Malzeno.

Malzeno is a vampiric elder dragon who captures monsters and steals their life force. It also has the ability to inflict Bloodblight status, causing fighters to slowly lose their HP in a tug-of-war. In order for fighters to regain lost HP as a result of Bloodblight, it seems they need to keep attacking Malzeno. If a fighter succumbs to Bloodblight, Malzeno will use the life force to evolve into a more powerful form.

Three additional monsters will also be added to Sunbreak, including Seregios, which was the flagship in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate† Aurora Somnacanth is a new subspecies of Somnacanth that fires a powerful ice breath instead of the usual soporific breath. The last monster is Magma Almudron, a subspecies of Almudron that specializes in elemental fire attacks.

solar time also introduces Follower Quests, which allow hunters to team up with story characters to help out on hunts. They can set traps, ride monsters, and help restore your health.

There are also a few new changes in quality of life. Players can now switch between two Switch skills with the Red Swap Scroll and Blue Swap Scroll, and can also avoid monster attacks while switching skills via the Swap Evade mechanism. In addition, players can now run into a wall without going into a wired dashboard first. When a monster has been knocked down and is in a climbable state, players can now choose to continue attacking it instead of riding on it. The old controls and new controls can be chosen at any time in the settings menu.

Those who pre-order Sunbreak will receive a striped cat costume and a faithful dog costume for their Palico and Palamute companions. Three new Amiibo will also be released, featuring Malzeno, Cayne Malzeno and Felyne Malzeno. Nintendo will separately release a Sunbreak Edition Nintendo Switch Pro Controller with the Malzeno design on the front.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak launches worldwide on June 30 for Nintendo Switch and PC.
