Monster Hunter Rise is getting a surprise Okami crossover

Monster Hunter Rise’s additional content roadmap continues with a surprising crossover: Okami. This new inclusion, called Capcom Collab 2, brings the main character of Okami, Amaterasu (nicknamed Ammy), to Rise as a Palamute layered armor set on July 30.

Back in May, Capcom detailed the future of support for Monster Hunter Rise by showing a roadmap of content to come. As seen in the Amaterasu trailer, this roadmap is set to bring three more of these Capcom Collabs, where other iconic characters, costumes, weapons, and cosmetics will be added to the game.

The trailer almost makes Rise look like a sequel to Okami itself. Amaterasu is perfectly recreated in the Monster Hunter style, featuring an all-new model for the game and some classic visual effects to go with it. As in her original game, Amaterasu is followed by a trail of plants wherever she steps. Her classic sparkle trail shows up as she runs at max speed as well.

When she fights by the player’s side, Amaterasu uses the same attacks she has in the Okami titles. She also may be able to change her attack stances as she does in those games, as seen by the changed weapon on her back throughout the trailer.

Capcom is continuing to keep Monster Hunter on the map with these constant updates and releases from the series. It recently launched a standout sequel to the series’ RPG spinoff, Monster Hunter Stories: 2.

Amaterasu is coming to Monster Hunter Rise as an unlockable Event Quest reward on July 30.

V Rising – Legacy of Castlevania crossover will let you fight Simon Belmont
Castlevania's Simon Belmont in V Rising.

Stunlock Studios and Konami have revealed that the survival crafting game V Rising will feature Castlevania crossover content when it leaves early access this May.

V Rising is a survival game where players control a vampire, and this crossover adds Simon Belmont as a hunter who's constantly trying to track down and kill players. If Simon Belmont is defeated, players will be able to equip and use his whip as a weapon. While that content is being added to V Rising free of charge as soon as it hits 1.0, a paid Legacy of Castlevania Premium Pack DLC will also be released. Purchasing it will net players Castlevania-themed decorations and music for their lair. These are all fitting crossover spots for a game that already heavily features vampires and pumps some life back into an unfortunately dormant game series.

Bear scare: ‘monster wolf’ robots protect Japanese towns from hungry marauding bruins

We first reported on Japan’s slightly bizarre “Monster Wolf” robot wolf a couple of years ago. The odd-looking contraption -- complete with glowing red eyes and protruding fangs -- was first installed on the outskirts of a town on the northern island of Hokkaido to frighten away bears that were entering the community in search of food.
