What you need to know

  • Monster Hunter Rise is an action adventure game where you're faced with slaying monsters.
  • The latest Capcom collaboration features Ghosts 'n Goblins layered armor.
  • New hairstyles are also available for free.

Capcom continues to update Monster Hunter Rise with both free and paid content for players to enjoy. With the 3.5 update, players can enjoy the newest Capcom collaboration, which features layered Hunter armor with a Ghosts 'n Goblins theme. The layered armor materials are locked behind an event quest available on October 29. Two more event quests are also available, which you can receive from Senri the Mailman in Kamura Village.

Though the character creator for the game is quite robust, some fans felt that curly hair wasn't represented well enough. Capcom listened to fans and included three new hairstyles featuring a short afro puff, a fade, and cornrows, for free. Anyone who downloads these hairstyles from the eShop can access them by pressing Y on the save select screen. Changing your hair to one of these hairstyles won't require a Character Edit Voucher.

New paid DLC includes:

  • "Utushi cut" hairstyle — $1.49
  • "Royal Dreads" hairstyle — $1.49
  • "Bombadgy Mask" Hunter layered armor piece — $1.49
  • Hunter Voice: Cool Girl — $2.99
  • Hunter Voice: Big Bro — $2.99
  • "Special Stickers 6" sticker set — $1.99
