Monster Hunter Rise has amiibo compatibility. On this page, you’ll find details on what amiibo work with the game, as well as information on unlocks.
What Amiibo Work with Monster Hunter Rise
As Monster Hunter Rise has amiibo functionality, you will be able to scan and read any amiibo. There are also three Monster Hunter Rise amiibo which are:
- Magnamalo amiibo
- Palamute amiibo
- Palico amiibo
The type of amiibo you scan results in different rewards and unlocks.
Where to Buy Monster Hunter Amiibo
The three Monster Hunter Rise amiibo are currently GameStop exclusives in the US, and go out of stock quite quickly. You could try ordering them off of Amazon Japan, which price difference is minimal even with shipping, however these won’t ship until June. IGN Deals Tweets whenever these become in stock at GameStop.
Amiibo Rewards and Unlocks
There are two types of rewards and unlocks you can get from amiibo in Monster Hunter Rise.
You can enter the amiibo lottery. You can scan any amiibo to enter this lottery each day. There is a limit to this however, and you can only scan amiibo three times per day for this. You will receive useful (but not exclusive) items, like traps, bombs, etc.
The three exclusive Monster Hunter Rise amiibo will also unlock special bonuses. These are all Sinister Seal cosmetics inspired by Magnamalo and differ depending on the amiibo you scan. Keep in mind these armor sets are layered armor – they have no stats and are meant to be worn on top of normal armor to change your appearance only.
How to Use Amiibo
To use the amiibo, you’ll need to speak to Kagero the Merchant at the market. Here, you can select Read amiibo to begin using them.
Once your amiibo are successfully read, you’ll have the option to enter the amiibo lottery or claim bonuses.
The amiibo lottery is similar to the normal Market Lottery you can enter when there’s a sale within the game.
How to Equip Layered Armor
Now that you have claimed your bonus, equip layered armor for your hunter at the item box. Layered Armor for your Palico and Palamute can be equipped at the Buddy Board.
