While escargot might not be for everyone, it looks like the Monster Hunter Rise Escurego might be a more universally loved item. Capcom took to the official Twitter account for the game to share a Hunting Helper, a sort of natural creature in the wild that can help people as they play.
The Escuregot announcement was accompanied by a short video showing how it works. As the name suggests, it is a snail someone might fight while out on a hunt. A person could pick the Hunting Helper up and stow them away. Then, later, if you place the Escuregot down, it will release a healing mist that will restore a Hunter’s health in the same way a potion might. This appears as a cloud in the field, and the clip and announcement didn’t note if it is an area-of-effect healer.
Here’s Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise Escurego video.
"Hunting Helpers" are endemic life that can be captured and deployed to assist you in the hunt. #MHRise
