Sonic Collaboration Coming to Monster Hunter Rise Has Been Revealed

The Sonic the Hedgehog collaboration coming to Monster Hunter Rise has been revealed by Capcom in a brand new trailer.

Monster Hunter Rise has seen a number of free DLC updates over the past few months that have looked to combine the world of Monster Hunter with other gaming franchises. In its most recently revealed collaboration, which can be seen teased in the trailer (below), the game is set to feature nods to both Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails in a new pack launching later this month.

Similar to the game's previous DLC collaborations, neither Sonic nor Tails will actually appear in the game. Instead, Monster Hunter Rise will make use of special armor sets which give the feel that both characters have entered the world.

Releasing on November 26, Capcom's latest DLC will include "Sonic Wear" layered armor for your hunter, as well as a Sonic Costume for your trusty Palico and a "Canyne Tails" costume for your Palamute.

The trailer itself shows off costumes that players will be able to equip to their characters when the DLC launches later this month. Across the clip, the characters can also be seen collecting a number of Sonic-style rings as they venture through various environments in Monster Hunter Rise - though it isn't clear as to whether these will actually feature in the DLC content in any way.

The clip ends with a screen advertising Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. The major expansion for the game is set to launch in Summer 2022 and will include new monsters, locations, and a new hub for players to explore in the game.
