We also learned more about the previously revealed Mizutsune – which can create movement-hindering bubbles – and flagship monster Magnamalo, an armoured beast that attacks with claws, tail, and hellfire-like gas.The show also showed off the game’s key characters – village leader Fugen, singing twins Minoto and Hinoa, tea shop owner Yomogi, guildmaster Hojo, hunting leader Master Utsushi, and buddy handler Iori, who helps you with your Palamutes and Palicos. Outside of the village, Kogarashi is the chief of the local Felyne Meowcenaries, and Rondine is a travelling trader.
Monster Hunter Rise gets a demo later today, featuring two tutorial quests and two hunting quests. The game will be released on March 26.
