Monster Hunter Rise Images Show Off New Player Hub and Shrine Ruins

Monster Hunter Rise Player Hub Shrine Ruins

The official Monster Hunter Rise website has uploaded more information, and screenshots, about the new player hub and the Shrine Ruins. This includes a brief synopsis of the background to Kamura Village, which is the new player hub in question.

Kamura Village looks similar to Yukumo Village from Monster Hunter Portable 3 (and subsequently Monster Hunter Generations) in its styling. It carries the same aesthetic of a Japanese village with vibrant cherry blossom-esque trees and roof styles. The official Monster Hunter Rise website has posted a brief synopsis about Kamura Village and the calamity.

The Story of Kamura Village

After 50 years, the calamity returns!

This village, known for its Tatara Steel, is where hunters make their living.
The Rampage, a calamity that ravaged the village 50 years ago, is about to occur again,
so the inhabitants are in turmoil.
The hero has to become the best hunter there is and overcome this calamity with the help of all the villagers.

Outside of a better look and more information about the new player hub in Monster Hunter Rise, images were uploaded of the Shrine Ruins. This is a new area unique to Monster Hunter Rise. It is described as a “place where people once prayed for protection” but “the shrine has fallen into decay and is now haunted by the roars of monsters.” The new flag ship monster, the Magnamalo was seen at this location in a brief shot in the announcement trailer.

Monster Hunter Rise is in development for the Nintendo Switch and will launch on March 26, 2021. Pre-orders are currently available, and pre-order bonuses include layered armor.
