We’ve known for a while now about Monster Hunter Rise’s Kamura Village. The new player hub will serve as every Hunters’ base of operations, as well as be the focal point for the game’s story about the mysterious Rampage. Thanks to today’s Monster Hunter Digital Event, we now know a whole lot more about the village’s characters, amenities, and features. Check out all the details below!

“Minoto and Hinoa are Wyverian Twins who serve as the Village Quest and Hub Quest maidens respectively. They are beloved in Kamura Village, and their songs bring peace to the hearts of the villagers. Minoto is quiet of demeanor and diligent in her work, yet is very kind-hearted and can even be a bit clumsy at times. She has the utmost respect for her sister and secretly wishes to be more like her. She is also a budding painter. Hinoa is a ray of hope in the midst of the storm that is the Rampage, uplifting spirits throughout the village with her joyful attitude. She sees the main character as family and would do anything to help them. She’s also a big eater and can often be found at the Tea Shop stuffing her face full of Bunny Dango!”

Rondine

“Rondine is a Trader from a far-off country who came to Kamura to make trade with the villagers and Hunters. She has an elegant and refined demeanor that’s out of character for a simple merchant, and some who have spoken to her believe that she’s hiding something.”

 

Cohoot

“Cohoot’s are both comforting companions for Hunters, as well as keen-eyed scouts that can pinpoint a monsters’ location while their masters are on the hunt. They’re a beloved pet among the people of Kamura Village, and can even be dressed up in different outfits!”

 

 

Facilities and Amenities

 

Gathering Hub & Hub Prep Area

 

“The Gathering Hub is an extravagant common area containing amenities such as a canteen and market to support hunters on their missions. It’s also the place to go when it’s time to pick Hub or Arena Quests. The hub has a prep area which is home to even more useful facilities such as the smithy to forge and upgrade your gear. It’s also where Hunters can meet with their Housekeeper who will grant them access to the Meowcenaries and Argosy.”

 

Buddy Plaza

 

“The buddy plaza is the place to go for all of your Buddies’ needs. You can meet Iori and use his Buddy Scout services, as well as talk to Felyne Chief Kogarashi and deploy the Meowcenaries! The plaza overlooks a river that stretches down to the Training Area and Argosy, where Rondine has her Trader’s services situated.”

 

Training Area

 

 

The training area allows you to hone your skills and practice new weapon types against a variety of targets whose behaviors can be adjusted to suit your needs. You can even train with fellow hunters!

 

Villagers

 

The villagers will help you in a variety of ways throughout your adventures and will be an indispensable asset against the Rampage.

Monster Hunter Rise releases on Friday, March 26th, and a demo will be available for a limited time starting later today!
