Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, the massive expansion that brings various new contents to Monster Hunter Rise, is coming on June 30, 2022! Here are the latest promotional trailer and introduction trailer of support equipment to reach the beginning of Sunbreak.

More powerful monsters will appear on SUNBREAK!

In the latest promotional trailer, more monsters made their appearance, namely Shagaru Magala, Scorned Magnamalo, and Furious Rajang

Shagaru Magala

The form taken by Gore Magala once they mature and molt. Gorgeous, glittering scales cover Shagaru Magala, and their divine wings are large enough to wrap around their entire body. According to records, one was once said to have scattered its black scales over an area the size of a mountain, annihilating any and all lifeforms inhabiting that region.

Scorned Magnamalo

A Magnamalo variant that achieves an even more twisted, malevolent form. Shrouded in Hellfire at all times, they also boast larger arm blades and harder armor plating. During battles, they have been spotted focusing their Hellfire and swinging it like a blade.

Furious Rajang

A Rajang variant covered in golden fur. Normally Rajang returns to their black-furred state after being agitated for a time to conserve energy, but these beasts have lost the ability to curb their anger. Outclassing the standard Rajang’s attack power, they assault with seething rage. At the apex of their fury, they become enraged and turn into destructive demons with electrified manes.
