Monster Hunter Rise Amiibo will launch next year

Monster Hunter Rise will be launching next year on the Nintendo Switch and with it comes a new cluster of toys to life figures for fans to get their hands on.


Revealed during last week’s Nintendo Direct Mini showcase alongside Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, Monster Hunter Rise is a new entry in the core series, steering away from the massively popular Monster Hunter: World.

Monster Hunter Rise – 7 things you need to know

Monster Hunter Rise has been confirmed as a Nintendo Switch exclusive title alongside Stories 2. As such, Capcom and Nintendo will be launching new amiibo figures alongside the game which can be used to unlocked certain bonuses.

As shown in the below tweet from Nintendo of Europe, there will be at least 3 Monster Hunter Rise amiibo coming next year including the Palamute, Magnamalo, and Palico.

The Palamute is a new canine companion who will ride out on excursions with hunters, allowing them to travel much faster while also adopting an offensive role in combat. Of course, you can also take a Palico with you though these cat-like creatures are more of a traditional support option as they have been in past Monster Hunter games. Meanwhile the Magnamalo will be Capcom’s flagship beastie for Monster Hunter Rise.

In terms of where to buy these new amiibo, they will be sold exclusively via the MyNintendo Store for EU gamers, and at GameStop for those in the United States.

Pricing info discovered by amiibo Alerts reveals that the Magnamalo figure will be slightly more expensive than the other two. It’s reasonable to assume this is because the figure will be bigger than both the Palamute and Palico though we have yet to hear confirmation via Nintendo or Capcom.

Monster Hunter Rise will launch on Nintendo Switch next year on March 26th, 2021. For more on Rise, we’ve put together a handy list of 7 things you need to know about the game right now.
