Demo Guide and Details

New Monsters


MH Rise Sunbreak - Espinas

Are you ready to face the thorn at your side? Espinas is joining us in MH Rise Sunbreak!

Espinas: Basic Information

Gore Magala

MH Rise Sunbreak - Gore Magala

One of the most iconic monsters in the entire Monster Hunter series returns! We can't wait to see how Gore Magala is like in the field in HD graphics.

Daimyo Hermitaur

MH Rise Sunbreak - Daimyo Hermitaur

You ready with some butter, hunters? As expected because of Shogun Ceanataur's reveal, Daimyo Hermitaur showed up!

Daimyo Hermitaur: Basic Information

Pyre Rakna-Kadaki

MH Rise Sunbreak -  Pyre Rakna Kadaki

They came out with a subspecies for one of the new monsters in MH Rise: Pyre Rakna-Kadaki. We imagine this one hurts a lot more than the regular Rakna-Kadaki!

Pyre Rakna-Kadaki: Basic Information

Lucent Nargacuga

MH Rise Sunbreak - Lucent Nargacuga

Then the last reveal was another subspecies, Lucent Nargacuga, swooping in for Sunbreak's very first title update. It appeared with a new map, Forlorn Arena, in tow.

Lucent Nargacuga: Basic Information

New Maps

Jungle Locale

MH Rise Sunbreak - Jungle locale
So we're not only getting the Citadel in Sunbreak, we're also getting an entirely different locale called Jungle! This should be familiar to Monster Hunter Rise veterans.

The Jungle

Forlorn Arena Map

MH Rise Sunbreak - Forlorn Arena map
Along with Lucent Nargacuga, they revealed a new map called Forlorn Arena, set to be released in August 2022 with the first Free Title Update! Rather than a whole locale, this is going to be like the Infernal Springs map where special fights take place.

Forlorn Arena
