Update: A Monster Hunter Spotlight has been announced for September 30th at 6 a.m. PT | 8 a.m. CT | 9 a.m. ET. More information about Sunbreak will be revealed!



Kicking off today’s Nintendo Direct was not Super Smash Bros., but instead a little something coming to us from Kamura Village. Monster Hunter Rise is getting a full expansion next year, titled Sunbreak.



In the vein of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, this will be a full addition to Rise — new monsters, story, hunting actions, and difficulty to be found. While pricing and specifics weren’t provided, we did see a new (likely flagship) taking on Rathalos.

Look forward to Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak in Summer 2022.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
