Street Fighter’s Akuma Coming To Monster Hunter Rise - Get2Gaming


The next Monster Hunter Rise collaboration is just around the corner.

Following Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin and Okami, Capcom has announced the next collaboration coming to Monster Hunter Rise, and it is one you may not have expected. It is a new layered armour set based on Street Fighter’s Akuma, allowing players to utilize the Satsui no Hado (though you’ll still be running around with regular weapons).

While hunter layered armour is merely a cosmetic that may be put over the player’s stats-based armour, the trailer for this ‘Capcom Collab’ appears to have a twist.

Without wielding a weapon, it appears that Akuma will be able to fight monsters performing his signature moves from the Street Fighter games. Akuma can use the Shoryuken and Tatsumaki Senpukyaku (aka Hurricane Kick), which can be unleashed while in mid-air, in addition to his signature Hadouken. His characteristic posture, of course, is also present. The armour will be given out as part of an event quest that begins on August 27th.

There have been other Street Fighter-Monster Hunter crossovers in the past, such as Ryu in Monster Hunter: World, albeit his famous ‘Hadouken’ and ‘Shoryuken’ attacks were only available as emotes that had to be obtained through costly DLC.

Monster Hunter Rise is now available for Nintendo Switch and will be released for PC in early 2022.
This Autumn, two more collaborative DLC packs will be released, so stay tuned for more information. You can watch the full collab gameplay trailer below:

In other news, Capcom may have something new to reveal at Gamescom, following an ominous tweet alluding to the possible Resident Evil 4 remake.

Elden Ring is also expected to make a showing at Gamescom 2021, although Halo Infinite was a no-show at the Xbox Showcase.
