Monster Hunter Rise's Amiibo Layered Armor Sets Revealed
Capcom is releasing three new Amiibo figures alongside the game that each unlock a set of layered armor based on the Magnamalo.
Monster Hunter Rise arrives on Nintendo Switch this March, and alongside the game, Capcom is releasing three new Monster Hunter Amiibo figures. The publisher had previously teased that these figures will unlock special layered armor sets in the game, and now it has given us a glimpse at what those sets look like.
All three figures net you gear based on the Magnamalo, Rise's new flagship monster. The Magnamalo Amiibo unlocks the Sinister Seal layered armor set for your hunter, while the Palamute and Palico Amiibo unlock similar sets of layered armor for your Palamute and Palico companion, respectively. You can take a look at each of the armor sets below.
The standalone Amiibo figures will be sold exclusively at GameStop in the US and EB Games in Canada. The Magnamalo figure also comes packaged with the Monster Hunter Rise Collector's edition, which features other digital and physical extras like an enamel pin and a sticker pack. You can learn more in our Monster Hunter Rise preorder guide.
Capcom revealed more details about Rise during its Monster Hunter Digital Event earlier this month. Among other things, the publisher shared a new trailer that showcased a new arctic locale called the Frost Islands, as well as a handful of new and returning monsters like the Goss Harag and Mizutsune.
Monster Hunter Rise launches on March 26. A limited-time demo is now available on the Switch eShop until February 1. It features four missions and supports up to four players locally or online. To take advantage of the latter, you'll need to have a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, but Nintendo is currently offering a free seven-day NSO trial through its My Nintendo rewards program.
