A Monster Hunter Rise and Street Fighter collab is coming this August 27, the official Facebook page of Monster Hunter announced Wednesday.
The popular Japanese fantasy role-playing video game unveiled the upcoming event quest where players can unlock the Akuma Hunter layered armor as a reward for completing said quest.
Akuma is a recurring antagonist in the Street Fighter series known for his Satsui no Hodo or Dark Hado fighting style. He first appeared as a hidden boss in Super Street Fighter II Turbo.
The event is part of Monster Hunter Rise’s weekly event quests with the Street Fighter collab dubbed as “Capcom Collab 3” and the next two coming later this fall.
Monster Hunter Rise is developed and published by Capcom for Nintendo Switch. Released worldwide earlier this March, it is the sixth mainline installment in the popular Monster Hunter series.
Last February, Nintendo unveiled a special Monster Hunter-themed edition of its Switch Console and Pro Controller to celebrate the launch of the series on the console.
