Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak to Add Shagaru Magala, Furious Rajang

Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Shagaru Magala

Capcom has revealed the last remaining monsters for the upcoming Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak expansion, including Shagaru Magala. The announcement also revealed several new and returning monster variants, such as the Furious Rajang and Scorned Magnamalo. This gives fans a better idea of what to expect in terms of content for the next few months, once Sunbreak releases later this week.

One key reveal of the announcement is the Shagaru Magala. As the name suggests, the six-limbed, winged Elder dragon is the adult form of the Gore Magala. The monster has appeared in earlier Monster Hunter titles, making its debut in Monster Hunter 4. The trailer gives a brief glimpse of the monster’s movements and attacks.

Furthermore, new and returning monster variants are set to appear both on Sunbreak‘s launch, as well as in the coming months. On launch, Capcom is bringing back the Furious Rajang, as well as adding a new Scorned Magnamalo variant. While Furious Rajang has been a staple in the Monster Hunter series for some time, the Scorned Magnamalo is new. Unlike its normal form, the Scorned Magnamalo is equipped with larger arm blades and is constantly covered in hellfire.

In August, the Seething Bazelgeuse will join the roster. The Bazelgeuse variant will join alongside the previously announced Lucent Nargacuga.
