Is the Deluxe version worth it? Take a gander for yourself!
Although it’s hard to believe, the Monster Hunter series has been around for over 15 years on console. First landing on the PC in English in 2020 with Monster Hunter World, this exciting RPG combines stealth and action into an imaginative setting the only way Capcom can.
The latest entry in the series, Monster Hunter Rise Deluxe Edition, upgrades the graphics from the original version on the Nintendo Switch and packs a bunch of monster hunter goodies to boot. Grab onto your Insect Glaive, stock up on some extra snacks, and let’s see what bounties Monster Hunter Rise Deluxe Edition provides!
Loads of amorous armor
Aside from the base game, Monster Hunter Rise Deluxe Edition includes an armor set and two layered armor pieces.
Dazzle the competition with the Kamurai Hunter layered armor set. Looking like a more dowdy version of a getup from an Akira Kurosawa samurai film, the Kamurai Hunter layered armor set combines a striking dark blue color scheme with straw accents. Despite its rustic appearance, the Kamurai Hunter armor set makes quite a statement.
But that’s not all! You can upgrade your Palamute and Palico animal companions with a striking armor boost to protect them from falling as fast as the creature next door. Enjoy protection for your Palamute Retriever and Palico Forest Cat with this boost from the Deluxe Edition.
You can make your Palico extra cute with the Fish Collar Layered Armor that’s also included with the Deluxe Edition of Monster Hunter Rise. Nothing fishy here!
Jump into Gestures
Another intriguing inclusion in Monster Hunter Rise Deluxe Edition are the four Jump Gestures. Although these are cosmetics, they can bring an extra touch of fun to the proceedings.
If you decide to get the Deluxe Edition of Monster Hunter Rise, why not show it off with these exclusive Jump Gestures?
Ai yai I yai, where's my Samurai?
Madonna once said, “Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it” in her hit 1990 single “Vogue”. Your avatar in Monster Hunter Rise can also strike a special pose with the Deluxe Edition’s samurai pose. Featuring a respective, yet snazzy, kneel in the ways of the samurais of old, this will make you stand out as the leader of the pack.
You can also deck yourself out with the Kabuki Face Paint. Strong angular patterns follow the contours of your cheekbones to create a theatrical yet tasteful look as you wander onto the battlefield.
To top things off, you can sport a new do with the Izuchi Tail hairstyle. More than just a topknot, the Izuchi Tail is a fanciful ponytail to make your Monster Hunter really stand out from the crowd.
So in addition to the base game of Monster Hunter Rise, pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition nets you a handful of cosmetics for not that much more than the standard version. There’s the Kamurai layered armor set, the Palico and Palamute armor pieces, four jump gestures, the samurai pose set, the kabuki face paint, and the Izuchi Tail hairstyle. That’s a nice melange of extra gear you can equip your Monster Hunter with to make them stand out from the crowd.
