Malzeno, Felyne Malzeno Palico, and Canyne Malzeno Palamute GameStop

Original (9/6): Monster Hunter fans and amiibo collectors have been wondering when we’d be seeing the Malzeno, Felyne Malzeno Palico, and Canyne Malzeno Palamute figures in the United States. Thankfully, the wait is almost over. All of these products will be available tomorrow, September 7.

The Malzeno figure has technically been available since the rise of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. This was included in the game’s collector’s edition. However, there’s been no way to get it individually, and the Felyne Malzeno Palico and Canyne Malzeno amiibo have thus far not been available in the United States.

Touch controls were a staple of many handheld Monster Hunter entries, which left many fans wondering why the control options weren’t quite as expansive in Monster Hunter Rise. In a recent interview with Nintendo Dream, Monster Hunter Rise director Yasunori Ichinose explained that as the Switch is a hybrid console, control choices largely stemmed from the fact the team had to develop with both handheld and docked play in mind.

Below is a translation of Ichinose’s full explanation, as well as other tidbits he shared about developing the game on Capcom’s proprietary RE Engine.

Monster Hunter Rise Sonic collaboration

Monster Hunter Rise features a variety of different crossover event quests and had guests from other Capcom properties like Street Fighter, Okami and Mega Man, but there was one collaboration in particular that stood out: the Sonic the Hedgehog 30th Anniversary quest. In an interview with Nintendo Dream, director Yasunori Ichinose explained how Sonic fans on the team prepared and submitted different ideas to SEGA, who ultimately greenlit the collaboration.

We’ve translated Ichinose’s account of the crossover below.

Monster Hunter Rise

Monster Hunter Rise director Yasunori Ichinose recently sat down with Japanese magazine Nintendo Dream to share some tidbits about the game’s development. The game actually began its development back on the 3DS, with a small team experimenting with modifications to Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

The same part of the discussion also gives insight into how the situation with COVID impacted development.
