Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Director Yoshitake Suzuki teased the inclusion of a new receptionist character through the official Monster Hunter Twitter account. While little information is known about the character, Suzuki posted a pair of glasses. Previous information revealed players would be heading to an entirely new area in the expansion. So, it makes sense that players will be introduced to new characters in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak like a new guild receptionist.
Here is the announcement:

Announced in September 2021, the expansion teased an area where players will be able to encounter entirely new monsters. This will include the flagship monster, the Malzeno. However, monsters from previous games will also appear in the paid expansion, including the Shogun Ceanataur. Master Rank will also be available once the expansion releases in Summer 2022. Additionally, a trailer from The Game Awards 2021 not only gave viewers a glimpse of the new player hub, but also teased another new monster that will appear.
In January 2022, Capcom revealed sales for Monster Hunter Rise had topped 8 million shortly after its PC release. The title has continued to sell, and it remains one of Capcom’s best-selling titles.
Monster Hunter Rise is available for the Nintendo Switch and PC. Demos are available for both platforms. Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak will release in Summer 2022.
