Monster Hunter’s eponymous monsters run the gamut from imposing dragons to expanding frogs, with each new entry bringing fresh designs to the table. In Rise’s case, it’s getting a few, but one of the strangest is perhaps Aknosom.

The creature, which is officially designated as a Bird Wyvern, hops around on one leg and has an umbrella-like head appendage. They’re also capable of spitting out fire, making them a threatening foe regardless of distance.

You can check out a brief clip of the new monster in action below:

Monster Hunter Rise launches exclusively on Switch next year on March 26, 2021.

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
