Sonic the Hedgehog Collaboration

30th Anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog

MH Rise  - Sonic The Hedgehog Collab Event Quest Rewards

It is full on Sonic for you, your Palico and Palamute! Starting November 26, 2021, you can come and get Sonic-themed gear for the entire party, and more, from two event quests: Gotta Hoard Fast and Super Shady Lookalike!

Gotta Hoard Fast Quest

MH Rise - Hunter Collecting Rings during Sonic Collab.png

This event quest's goal is in the name: you'll have to hoard all the golden rings around the map, and fast! You'll get a ton of rewards for your efforts, too.

Sonic Costume Palico Layered Armor

Normal Mode
Super Sonic Mode

A spin dash action lets your Palico blast forward like Sonic does, while feeding it with Felvine Bulbs transforms it into Super Sonic mode!

Sonic Costume Layered Armor

Canyne Tails Palamute Layered Armor

You can also have Tails' outfit for your Palamutes and have them rocking a twin-tailed look while hunting!

Canyne Tails Layered Armor

Figurines as Additional Rewards

You can also get figurines for Sonic, Tails and Knuckles as decoration for your room!

Super Shady Lookalike Event Quest

MH Rise - Super Shady Lookalike Quest

Go toe to toe with a Nargacuga in the Flooded Forest and get your hunter new, Sonic-themed layered armor!

Sonic Wear Layered Armor

MH Rise - Sonic Wear Layered Armor

This layered armor might not provide much change in our hunter's actions or animation sequences, unlike the ones we had with the Street Fighter and Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection collab events. But it might be cool hunting monsters in an athleisure outfit!

Sonic Wear Layered Armor

Will be Available for PC Release Early

The Sonic the Hedgehog collab event will be available as early day one of the PC release this January 12, 2022. PC gamers will have a chance to dress-up their Hunters and Buddies in Sonic fashion as soon as the PC release drops.

Monster Hunter x Sonic Frontiers Collab

The official Sonic the Hedgehog and Monster Hunter Twitter accounts have shared that the upcoming Sonic Frontiers game will have a special collaboration with the Monster Hunter series!

Starting on Novermber 14, 2022, Monster Hunter-related content will be available to download in Sonic Frontiers. These include Monster Hunter-inspired equipment for Sonic and a mini-game.

Sonic Frontiers is set to launch on November 8, 2022.

New Event Quests

More Weekly Event Quests

MH Rise - Update 3.6 Sonic Event Quest Hunt

New event quests, as per usual, will be added every week during the month of December, which more often than not have unique rewards. These are released weekly every Friday, 12AM GMT+00 so stay tuned!

After the last event quest (presumably at the end of December), they might be busy preparing for the PC release, so we might not get any more Switch-exclusive updates until then. Keep your eyes peeled!

  • A new Gyro Correction function will be added to the Gyroscope options. This will allow you to adjust how frequently the position of the gyroscope is recalibrated.
Bug Fixes/ Miscellaneous

  • Fixed a bug causing display issues for the Bishaten armor series when equipped on Body Type 01.
  • Fixed a bug preventing the target camera reticle from changing when a monster changes its posture due to a special status.
  • Fixed a bug that makes it look as if Great Wirebugs are not moving if you use one while gathering an item right after sliding.
  • Fixed a bug preventing some saved colors from being properly reflected in the preview when using the character creator.
  • Fixed a bug causing the forelock of the Izuchi Tail hairstyle to clip through the Kulu-Ya-Ku Helm.

  • Fixed a bug in the reset timing for the great sword's Rage Slash that was introduced after a bug fix in Ver.3.4.1.
  • Fixed the controls explanation for the hammer's Dash Breaker, because it was the same as the one for the Silkbind Spinning Bludgeon.
  • Fixed a bug occasionally causing the game to freeze if the bowgun's Sticky Ammo explodes right when the screen changes, such as during the quest results.
  • Fixed a bug occasionally preventing the photosensitivity warning from being displayed in the selected language.
  • Fixed a bug causing the options to be reset to default if you cancel after performing specific actions on the Options screen.
  • Fixed a bug preventing the "!" icon from disappearing for the message at the very bottom of the chat window, if you look at the log while you have an unread chat message.
  • Fixed a bug preventing the "!" icon from disappearing even if you accept all Guild Cards after performing a specific set of actions.
  • Fixed a bug causing the pressing of directional buttons being registered twice if they are pressed once at the exact moment when the Quest Select screen is displayed.
  • Fixed various text bugs.
  • Other miscellaneous bug fixes have been made.
