Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is the latest game to get its very own Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. During today’s Sunbreak digital showcase, Capcom unveiled the fancy new Switch Pro Controller that’s on the way.

The new version of the Nintendo Switch gamepad is set to arrive alongside the Sunbreak DLC on June 30. During today’s digital showcase, we got a few glam shots, with more appearing on social media.

The special Sunbreak Switch Pro Controller has a nice little design of Malzeno, the vampiric elder dragon that’s at the heart of Sunbreak‘s story. No extra-special colors or designs for the grips, though.

Monsters, followers, and more

Today’s showcase dove into many different features on the way for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak. There are new monsters, like the aforementioned Malzeno and some new variants. MH4U‘s scaly Seregios also makes an appearance. Old faces are getting some master rank versions too, to make their hunts feel brand new and even more dangerous.

Follower Quests are also coming to Monster Hunter Rise through Sunbreak, allowing players to undertake quests with NPCs. These are single-player-only missions, but you’ll be able to team up with some recognizable characters, including those both in the new kingdom and the old village. It feels a little like the Trust system from Final Fantasy XIV, and I’m hoping it adds a similar boost to single-player for Monster Hunter.

Switch Skills are also getting a big update through the new Swap system, allowing players to flip between loadouts of Switch Skills. Alongside a new Evade move, it seems like each weapon type will be able to get a little more creative. And the Malzeno Pro Controller will probably help out with landing all those sick new combos.

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is coming to Nintendo Switch and PC on June 30, 2022. The Sunbreak Switch Pro Controller is set to debut on the same date.
