New Locale and New Base of Operations

MH Rise - Sunbreak Expansion New Locales and Maps

According to the recent Capcom Online Event last September 30th, much like Seliana in Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, the Sunbreak expansion will feature a new locale and new base of operations. There is no news yet on the name or nature of the locale, but we'll definitely update this page once more details about it drop.

Because of the ruined European castle, it's been speculated that this is where Rondine might have come from, considering she came from a land that has a kingdom and her older sister is a knight!

New Switch Skills?

We're not quite sure what Nintendo of Europe means by new hunting actions, but we're assuming it has something to do with having new Switch Skills! We're excited to see how these will make Rise gameplay fresh.

    • Give us the ability to change our layered armor display. What I mean is, ya know how armor looks different on the male and female models? well, I wish there was the ability to change the appearance from the male models of armor, to the female models, and the reverse without changing the gender of your character itself. This would be really nice, as imo some armor pieces look better as the male model version.
