What Are The Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Amiibos?
The Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Amiibos are small figurines based on a handful of the characters in the new expansion. The three new Amiibos are somewhat variants of the pre-existing Monster Hunter Rise Amiibo collection, which was comprised of the following:

- Magnamalo Amiibo
Whereas the three exciting new Amiibos are:
- “Canyne Malzeno” Palamute Amiibo
- “Felyne Malzeno” Palico Amiibo
- Malzeno Amiibo
You can get your hands on each of the individual new Amiibo through the My Nintendo store, but don’t be surprised if they’re all sold out due to the high demand.
There are also special edition Platinum and Metallic Red variants of each new Amiibo, but unfortunately these are only available in Japan through a special giveaway competition.
Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Amiibo Rewards
Apart from looking pretty, the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Amiibo actually have a purpose and benefit in game.
The first main benefit that you will gain access to from each Amiibo is a new Layered Armour set. If you don’t know what the Layered Armour system is in Monster Hunter, it is armour that is entirely cosmetic, that only replaces the look of what you’re wearing but not the stats of your existing set. Each Amiibo comes with a corresponding Layered Armour set, which are as follows:
- “Canyne Malzeno” Palamute Amiibo: Formal Dragon Palico Layered Armour Set
- “Felyne Malzeno” Palico Amiibo: Formal Dragon Palamute Layered Armour Set
- Malzeno Amiibo: Formal Dragon Hunter Layered Armour Set
The other main reward system that you will get from the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Amiibos is through the in-game lottery. Players can scan each Amiibo once a day to have the chance of receiving exciting in game rewards, which are different for every single Amiibo.It is currently unknown whether the new Amiibo use the same rewards as their corresponding Monster Hunter Rise originals, but you will have impressive gifts waiting for you regardless.

In order to use your new Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak Amiibo, you’ll want to head to Kagero the Merchant in Kamura Village. This is where you will also be able to claim your new Layered Armour sets too.
