Capcom has a bit of history with releasing ultra-rare amiibo, and is likely to repeat that history with some Japan-only gold Monster Hunter Rise figurines.

As Eurogamer points out, a set of gold versions of the three Monster Hunter Rise amiibo will be made available as part of a lottery to those who buy the game as a download code from Japanese 7-Eleven stores.

While Capcom hasn’t formally said how many sets of the gold amiibo will be released, past evidence suggests they’ll be extremely hard to come by. Capcom previously ran a similar competition for a gold Mega Man 11 amiibo, only releasing 10 of the figurine. It also released one each of silver and gold Monster Hunter Stories figurines, making them almost certainly the rarest amiibo in circulation.

We’re nearing 200 separate amiibo have seen release, with Cat Mario and Cat Peach, Terry Bogard, Byleth, and Banjo & Kazooie figures still to come from Nintendo this year.

Monster Hunter Rise (and its amiibo) will arrive on March 26, and you can play a demo right now, until February 1.
