The crossover event, which begins on July 30, has players taking on a special quest that will reward an ‘Ammy Costume’.
This is a new skin for players’ Palamute, which makes it look like Amaterasu.
This is the second ‘Capcom Collab’ event planned for Monster Hunter Rise. The first, which was made available on June 18, let players unlock materials that could be used to dress up their Palico like the Tsukino character from Monster Hunter Stories 2.
According to an updated roadmap at the end of the trailer for the Okami event (which can be viewed above), there will be at least three more Capcom Collab events, with one coming in August and two more coming in the Fall.
The game shipped 4 million units during its first weekend and 5 million units in its first ten days, Capcom claimed, bringing the Monster Hunter series sales to over 70 million units combined. Capcom’s largest series, Resident Evil, has sold just over 100 million units.
The publisher’s previous Monster Hunter title, Monster Hunter World, managed to hit 5 million launch sales during its opening weekend, though that title was released on multiple platforms.
The game became the first in Capcom’s history to ship 15 million copies. Total shipments had reached 16.8 million units as of December 2020.
