Sonic the Hedgehog races into Monster Hunter Rise on November 26

The crossover event features Sonic-themed quests and cosmetics!

Capcom announced yesterday on the official Monster Hunter Twitter that the Sonic the Hedgehog collaboration will begin November 26.

As seen in the official trailer, the Monster Hunter Rise crossover with Sonic features a variety of really cool cosmetic items. Players can equip their hunter with the new “Sonic Wear” layered armor. In addition, players can dress up their companions with Sonic-themed armors. Your Palico can wear a full-body Sonic costume, and your Palamute gets an adorable “Caynyne Tails” outfit.

The trailer also shows off other nods to the Blue Blur. At multiple points, the decked-out characters collect the iconic golden rings from the Sonic games. Additionally, the Palico speeds across the screen using the Spin Dash animation and sound effects associated with SEGA’s mascot.

Players can acquire the special outfits by completing the two new collaboration quests in the event. Other quest rewards include Sonic and Tails figurines. One of the quests involves the golden rings around the field. However, Capcom has not revealed the second quest.

Sonic and Monster Hunter Rise: the story so far

Capcom first announced the collaboration between Sonic the Hedgehog and Monster Hunter Rise during their presentation at Tokyo Game Show 2021. Since the first announcement, however, Capcom remained quiet on the crossover for some time. They instead opted to focus on their other collaboration event with Ghosts ‘n Goblins.

The silence broke on November 6 when Capcom reminded fans on Twitter that the event would happen this month. In addition, they sent fans to this landing page, which was blank until yesterday. Now, players can visit the site to learn all the information about the Sonic the Hedgehog and Monster Hunter Rise crossover.

The event officially begins on November 26. Are you excited to celebrate the Blue Blur’s 30th anniversary in Monster Hunter Rise? Let us know what you think down below!
