Monster Hunter Amiibo

When Monster Hunter Rise was revealed in the recent Nintendo Direct showcase, we also got our first glimpse at three tantalising amiibo figurines which go alongside the game. Palamute is a dog companion which you can ride around on during hunts. Palico is a cat-like combat companion and perhaps the most exciting amiibo is Magnamalo who is the flagship monster introduced into this latest instalment of the Monster Hunter series.

Each amiibo unlocks special armour within the game and grants players with access to a daily lottery for further prizes. At the time of writing, pre-orders of these delightful amiibo are not open in North America or Europe. However you can place a pre-order for the Japanese versions today from Play Asia.
