Capcom has released more Monster Hunter Rise concept art images, both of which feature Hinoa and Minoto. Previous concept art had revealed various information regarding the conceptualization of monsters like the Tetranadon and Magnamalo. However, this series of images focus on the community of Kamura Village and feature a handful of major NPCs the player encounters during the story.
The first piece of concept art features Minoto. She looks up at the falling cherry blossoms while holding a Palico. A Palamute sits beside her. The second piece of Monster Hunter Rise concept art features both Hinoa and Minoto. This time, Master Utsushi, Iori, and Yomogi have joined them. You can see the group enjoying a light meal of dango beneath cherry blossom trees.
