Capcom announced that it will add four new music tracks in the upcoming Monster BGM: Rock Version DLC pack for Monster Hunter Rise. It will include the rock version of “Breath of Ire” previously showcased at Tokyo Game Show 2021. The track will be available in two versions. One will have vocals from the Japanese singer Konomi Suzuki, and another will be instrumentals only. Capcom will announce the other two tracks at a later time.
The company also published a new trailer promoting the upcoming DLC pack. It shows Konomi Suzuki recording her vocals for the rock rendition of Wind Serpent Ibushi’s battle theme in a studio.
The rock version of “Breath of Ire” was the new piece of music for Monster Hunter Rise that Capcom teased for Tokyo Game Show 2021. Konomi Suzuki performed the song in person with the lyrics based on the Monster Hunter universe’s original language. Shortly after the performance, the show’s host announced that Capcom will add the rock rendition into the game as DLC in December 2021.
Monster Hunter Rise is currently available on Nintendo Switch. Capcom will add crossover content from Sonic the Hedgehog in November 2021. The Rock Music DLC pack will follow in December 2021. The game’s PC version will be available on Steam the month after on January 12, 2022.
