Capcom shares a few tidbits on Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, including confirmation of character customization

Not the most monstrous news, but it's something!

Not too much was shown at Capcom's first TGS 2020 live-stream regarding the recently announced Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, but there were a few notable tidbits mentioned.

Following in the footsteps of the original game, the appearance of the protagonist will be completely customizable. Whatever you decide to look like, you'll be playing as the grandchild of the seasoned Rider and Hunter "Red".

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin launches for Nintendo Switch in Summer 2021, and you can watch last week's Monster Hunter Direct here for even more details!

Monster Hunter Rise layered armor silhouettes give us a first peek at amiibo unlocks

Looking pretty ornate!

Capcom has already revealed that the Monster Hunter Rise amiibo will unlock layered armor for your characters. What we havent seen is what that armor looks like. Today we get a hint of what to expect.

Capcom has shared silhouettes for the layered armor that amiibo unlock, and they definitely give a better idea of what to expect. You'll be able to outfit your whole crew with some rather fancy armor, and as far as we know, there won't be any other way to access this armor. Hopefully we get a look at the full armor soon!

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!

Monster Hunter Rise amiibo designs revealed

Looking sharp!

We may have seen artwork for the Monster Hunter Rise characters that were getting amiibo, but that was just in-game art. Now we actually get to see what those amiibo look like. Fans can snatch up Palamute, Palico, and Magnamalo amiibo, but I'm sure most will opt for all three!

New synopsis released for the Monster Hunter movie

There are monsters...and they need to be hunted

Sony's original plan was to have the Monster Hunter movie out in cinemas now, but the pandemic screwed up those plans. The film is now slated for a Spring 2021 release, which gives us quite a bit of time to wait before release. While we count down the months, you can read over a brand-new synopsis for the movie below.

"Behind our world, there is another: a world of dangerous and powerful monsters that rule their domain with deadly ferocity. When an unexpected sandstorm transports Lt. Artemis (Milla Jovovich) and her unit (TI Harris, Meagan Good, Diego Boneta) to a new world, the soldiers are shocked to discover that this hostile and unknown environment is home to enormous and terrifying monsters immune to their firepower. In their desperate battle for survival, the unit encounters the mysterious Hunter (Tony Jaa), whose unique skills allow him to stay one step ahead of the powerful creatures. As Artemis and Hunter slowly build trust, she discovers that he is part of a team led by the Admiral (Ron Perlman). Facing a danger so great it could threaten to destroy their world, the brave warriors combine their unique abilities to band together for the ultimate showdown."

Monster Hunter Rise "Deluxe Card" being offered in Japan

All the deluxe goodies in card form

Over in Japan, Capcom is offering a unique way for Monster Hunter Rise customers to get the Deluxe Edition perks without actually buying the physical option. Retailers will be offering a "Deluxe Card" for 1,364 Yen, and it will include the following content.

– “Kamurai” Hunter layered armor set
– “Shuriken Collar” Palamute layered armor piece
– “Fish Collar” Palico layered armor piece
– Gestures (4 Jumps)
– Samurai pose set
– Kabuki face paint
– “Izuchi Tail” hairstyle

This would be a great way for people buying a standard edition of the game to snag these extra goodies all together, rather than snatching them up piecemeal.
