Capcom Brings Us The Monster Hunter Rise/Okami Crossover We Didn’t Know We Wanted

The Sun Goddess Is On Your Side

Okami

Fans of Monster Hunter Rise have come to expect some great extra content. Capcom’s latest announcement should please fans of another of their franchises as well. Okami, to be exact.

This latest event, starting July 30th, will bring Okami’s Amaterasu into the game. The trailer for the event below shows you riding your wolf companion and her attacking in a way highly reminiscent of her classic adventure. Capcom even included footage of Okami to drive the similarity home. By completing this event you’ll earn an “Ammy Costume” Palamute layered armor set. That way you can keep hanging out with the Sun Goddess going forward.

Okami

This actually isn’t the first time Okami and Monster Hunter have teamed up. Monster Hunter Generations on 3DS gave you the chance to dress your Felyne up as Amaterasu as well. It’s been awhile though and I think comparing the image above to the trailer below shows how far the series has come.

This isn’t the last content you’ll see for Monster Hunter Rise. It already crossed over with Monster Hunter Stories 2 and three more collaborations are teased at the end of this trailer. I know we’ll be looking forward to checking them out as they’re released. Our own Kenny McKee gave Rise a 4.5/5 earlier this year so you know the game has its fans on our team.

Now that we’re sure Capcom remembers Okami, who do we ask about a sequel? Barring that, you can check out the trailer for this collaboration below.

Andrew has been writing about video games for nearly twenty years, contributing to publications such as DarkStation, Games Are Fun, and the E-mpire Ltd. network. He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
