“Monster Hunter Rise” combines the best of Japanese feudal culture
The residents of Kamura, who kill dangerous monsters known as hunters, wear ninja-inspired costumes as their primary initial equipment, which can then be replaced by armor created from the elaborate parts of defeated monsters. They have hunters kunai and shuriken, are small firearms used by ninjas, tied to their costumes. Capcom introduced elements of ninja design into the world Ascent because the group thought the concept would be easy to understand, as ninjas are known all over the world through manga and anime.
Reinventing travel and food
The ninja motif extends to the crossing Monster Hunter Rise as well. One of the biggest aspects of the game is the verticality. Hunters are equipped with Wirebugs, which can be used to propel them forward, start wall jumps, and drop themselves in the air. This type of movement is well known in the Eastern media. For example, the 2019 title of From Software Sekiro: The shadows die twice embracing verticality allows players to scale large buildings — away from other studio titles, such as— By blood and Dark souls. In addition, The axThe main character, the Wolves, has a similar hook to the Hunters’ Wirebugs Ascent. Ninjas are known for being fast, “so we added fast movement for fun actions such as wall running and Wirebug moves,” says Ichinose.
Another method of traveling in the game are the new Palamute dogs. Hunters can roam the wide and wide battlefields to catch monsters without the use of any resistance. Dogs are part of Japanese culture in the real world and have been good hunting partners — not just in Japan. The AkitaFor example, he guarded the monarchy in feudal Japan and helped track down wild prey. Very popular Shiba Inu the breed can also scare away smaller animals and hunt wild boar, but they are now popular in Japan with mostly friendly pets. Ichinose added, “Palamutes a year Ascent they are dog helpers, so we’ve included hunting dog items, they’re also trusted with friends who will help with your hunting with Palicoes. ”
Palico felines, first introduced Monster Hunter: World, back Ascent as well. They can play a variety of support roles during combat, but perhaps they are known for their tremendous display in the kitchen. In Kamura Village, there are plenty of Japanese delicacies around, such as mochi, candy apples and onigiri. Palicos can be seen mochi knocking, is then used dango recipes (delicious rice dumplings popular in Japanese cuisine).
Food is a big part of the gameplay and overall construction of the world Monster Hunter Rise. In the kitchen area, players can choose three dango pieces. Each piece offers a bonus to the Hunter by drinking extra potency for some items like fire and electrical damage or faster HP recovery.
Players in comparison to the weird meals of many handkerchiefs Monster Hunter: The World, including foods such as steak and vegetables, dangos were chosen to lighten the experience Monster Hunter Rise. “The dangos were perfect because they are a well-known part of Japanese food culture and a variety of flavors and appearances can be presented within a single menu,” Ichinose explains. The group wanted the system to be simpler and more understandable; thus increasing statistics and mechanisms for activating skill effects by combining different types of food World was removed.
The monsters are based on the Japanese Yokai and Oni
As for real monsters, Monster Hunter Rise it does not disappoint. The new monsters introduced in this entry are inspired them and yokai, who are demons and spirits, respectively, in Japanese folklore. For example, the iconic monster Magnamalo has a samurai-like face man-yoroi mask. Ichinose says that Magnamalo includes elements of armored war ghosts, devil’s fire, and tiger motifs, along with the purple gas that comes out of the body from eating other monsters.
