Announced a few months ago and teased this past Monday, the first Rockman X DiVE collaboration with another Capcom IP is here! Its none other than Monster Hunter -- Capcom's second best-selling franchise.
Find all the details after the break!
Capcom announced today the full extent of the Rockman X DiVE and Monster Hunter Rise collaboration event. And really, they didn't leave anything for the imagination.
First we have the three gacha characters: Hunter V (Sinister), Hunter R (Kamura) and Rathalos Armor X. While the trailer has yet to be released, I think it's safe to assume this will be no different than other events with three characters. Further, next Wednesday after routine maintenance, Hunter V and R will be available with Rathalos Armor X coming shortly after.
Now, if you take a closer look at the image above, you will notice a familiar boss behind the characters. Yep; that's Wolf-Sigma with a new coat of paint. He will be the boss of the event.
As for the weapon available for this collaboration, we have a new saber and new machine gun. The English names have yet to be reveled by the development team.
While none of the above is available in the game at this moment, the collaboration started today and you can pre-register to receive rewards/enter a lucky draw for EM and a special collaboration badge. You can find all the details here.
Now when it comes to in-game activities, the Master Utsushi's Challenge has started through July 7. In this challenge, you have to complete specific missions like "beat story mode with a certain character", or "Complete the Jakob Orbital Elevator (Hard) 20 Times" to name a few.
After completing this missions, you will get Kamura Tickets which can be used in the store to get "Zero Memories", the cards "Hunter", "Aknosom" and "Tetranadom" and Kamura Supply Pouches that will randomly give you "5 to 20 EM" or the cards "Aknosom" and "Tetranadom".
That's all for now but keep your eyes peeled the trailer is around the corner! Let us know what you think of the character in the comments!
