Velkhana and Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax Join Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Velkhana and Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax Join Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

During the February 2023 Monster Hunter Digital Event, two monsters ended up in the spotlight. Both Velkhana and Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax will join Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak in the free Title Update 4. They’ll both appear in the game on February 7, 2023.

People will be able to fight Velkhana when they hit MR 10. People might recognize this icy Elder Dragon from Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. This marks the monster’s second appearance in the series.

Risen Crimson Glow Valstrax will be available at MR 160. This is yet another Elder Dragon. It’s a bit older, however. It first showed up in Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, with the Crimson Glow variant appearing in Monster Hunter Rise.
