Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak amiibo

Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak is an expansion to Capcom’s popular Monster Hunter Rise game.  I hear it’s a pretty big addition, too.  So much so that it got three new amiibo figures!  I had to import these, as I never saw where I could get them in the US.  Actually I think Capcom USA had a special edition of the game that came with one of the amiibo figures (the dragon), but I wasn’t about to pay hundreds of dollars for that plus a game I’d never play.  But luckily, importing these wasn’t very costly at all!  I was surprised.  So let’s take a look at them!

Here they are in the boxes.

And here they are out of the boxes.  From left to right we have “Otomo Airou (Meruzeneko)” who looks like a cat with armor and a sword.  These Monster Hunter games seem to have a lot of cat creatures.  In the middle we have “Meruzena” who is a dragon that looks like an evil Spyro.  And last we have “Otomo Garuku (Meruzegaru)” who is a dog with armor on.  I think these games have dogs in them, too, that help you carry weapons and whatnot.  I saw somewhere that you can get a skin that changes your dog to look like Rush from Mega Man.  I would totally get that DLC if I played the game.  I guess the theme for these figures and the game is everyone wears gold armor?

Anyway, as always, the attention to detail is awesome.  I think Monster Hunter has more amiibo figures than any other third party franchise!  Just goes to show you how popular Capcom’s series is.  I’ve never played one, but I probably would if I didn’t have to work…or sleep…and if there were 50 hours in a day.  And even then I’d probably just start with the Monster Hunter Stories games (which also have amiibo figures).  Anyway, let me know what you think in the comments section!  Later!  –Cary
