Capcom has revealed in a new video that Capcom Collab 4 for Monster Hunter Rise is Mega Man 11, bringing the Event Quest Reward “Rush Costume” Palamute Layered Armor set on Friday, September 24. In other words, super fighting robot dog Rush is coming to Monster Hunter Rise, and he looks spectacular. He’s our lovable glossy boy, whom you can ride regularly or in his Rush Jet form if you’d like (so cool), and you can even bounce off his back with a spring seat to get some air. Check out the Monster Hunter Rise Mega Man 11 Capcom Collab 4 video and admire Rush in all his glory.
Previous Capcom Collabs have brought other colorful friends to the game. Capcom Collab 3 brought Akuma from Street Fighter with the “Akuma Hunter Layered Armor.” Capcom Collab 2 brought Amaterasu from Okami as a Palamute Layered Armor. And the first Capcom Collab simply brought Palico Layered Armor for Tsukino from Monster Hunter Stories 2. Capcom Collab 5 will arrive sometime this fall.
Monster Hunter Rise has been a terrific success for Capcom, helping to lead the company to record first-quarter profits. Indeed, Mega Man 11 has been a great success as well, selling more than 1.3 million units since launch in 2018. Call me crazy, but I have a hunch sending the Mega Man 11 version of Rush to Monster Hunter Rise will instantly result in an extra 50 million units sold for Rise.
Yeah, I’m kind of a Mega Man fan, if that weren’t clear.
