To help fans get familiar with Monster Hunter Rise, the official Twitter account is uploading short clips of the game.

In the very first one, it shared a video of your hunter's new dog-like companion - the Palamute. This good boy is able to be pet and can also perform a few tricks. Take a look below:

The Palamute is not only a companion but is also used as a mode of transport to travel between locations. In addition to this, it will aid you in battle - as demonstrated by Capcom at this year's Tokyo Game Show.
