Monster Hunter Rise is crossing over with Okami on July 30. But players won’t be hunting down Amaterasu and skinning her for parts. No, players will be able to adventure alongside Amaterasu with some special Layered Armor for their Palamute.
This week, Capcom will launch its second cross-over in Monster Hunter Rise — events where players can grab armor and items based on other Capcom properties. The first crossover for Rise was Palico Layered Armor from Monster Hunter Stories 2. Now, players will need to take on a special Event Quest to grab Okami armor for their Palamute. Capcom hasn’t revealed the details of the Event Quest, but most collaboration-based armor isn’t difficult to acquire.
The Layered Armor is a purely visual change, and Palamutes will still draw their power from the armor you craft for them. But, they’ll get to look cool as hell in their new “Ammy” costume. The trailer for the Layered Armor shows Amaterasu in glorious HD. The Palamute costume offers the cloud-like shoulders and Amaterasu’s signature flaming disc. Even better, when players sprint on their Amaterasu-clad Palamute, they’ll leave behind a trail of flowers.
The Okami crossover event is free for all Monster Hunter Rise owners.
