As part of the Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Title Update 5 announcement, Capcom confirmed Amatsu and Risen Shagaru Magala. Due to the Master Rank required for one, people will need to play a substantial amount of time to access the fight against the Elder Dragon who conquered the Qurio. However, they will be able to craft new armor and equipment when they do.
Amatsu is one of the older Monster Hunter Elder Dragons. It first showed up in Monster Hunter Portable 3rd for the PSP. However, it also showed up in other entries, like Monster Hunter Generations. Players at Master Rank 10 can face it.
Meanwhile, Shagaru Magala debuted in Monster Hunter 4. Since then, it’s been a regular inclusion in entries. It showed up in Monster Hunter Generations, for example. Players will need to play for quite a bit to earn the right to face this Elder Dragon, as it requires MR 180.
Here’s a closer look at the new armor sets teased in the Title Update 5 showcase. It seems human, Palico, and Palamute Amatsu armor appeared, while only human Risen Shagaru Magala items showed up.
Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak is available for the Nintendo Switch and PC, and the free Title Update 5 release date is April 20, 2023. The expansion will come to the PS4 and Xbox One on April 28, 2023.
