Once again, Monster Hunter is getting a custom Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. This time, it’s based on the latest expansion. During the May 2022 Monster Hunter Digital Event, a Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Switch Pro Controller showed up. It will feature the new flagship monster Malzeno.
The Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Switch Pro Controller appeared briefly during the segment. The announcement was more to reveal that it exists and to show off its design. This will be an all black controller. On the front will be Malzeno in silver. There will also be darker black accents to suggest the Elder Dragon is in the midst of an attack. The back of the controller wasn’t shown. However, the design did reveal that the grips of the controller will be flat black and not feature any designs on them.
If the Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Switch Pro Controller follows in the footsteps of its predecessor, it will appear when the expansion launches. When Monster Hunter Rise appeared, it got a similar controller. However, its Switch Pro Controller had a gold Magnamalo on it. Hori also released a Split Pad Pro controller with Magnamalo art too.
Monster Hunter Rise is available for the Nintendo Switch and PC. Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak will release for PC and Nintendo Switch on June 30, 2022.
