There are three new monsters coming in the next update, as listed below:

  • Violet Mizutsune

We’ll go over each one in more detail below as well.

Flaming Espinas

Exploding onto the scene is a fiery new subspecies of Espinas, the Flaming Espinas. This new powered-up version of Espinas is more or less the same as the original, but brings much more firepower to the table. If you recall previous subspecies, such as Silver Rathalos or Gold Rathian for example, then you’ll remember that although their move sets didn’t change much, their attacks became much more deadlier. Flaming Espinas is no different, as now all it’s fire-based attacks deal much more damage, and even brings poison to the table.

The official Monster Rise page even gives some insight as well.

“An Espinas subspecies with a slightly more muted body color.
The boldness of the standard Espinas remains: run-of-the-mill attacks won’t rouse Flaming Espinas from their slumber. Their breath attack contains a powerful poison, and a dense acid that deteriorates armor.
Take this attack head-on, and you won’t stand a chance…”

Violet Mizutsune

Mizutsune are well known for being one of the most elegant monsters in the entire franchise. However, that takes a drastic turn with its brand new subspecies, Violet Mizutsune. Unlike normal Mizutsune, who primarily deal in water-based attacks, this new subspecies is now adding fire into the mix. The iconic bubble attack that Mizutsune is known for is now charged with fiery aftermath if hunters were to get too close.

The official Monster Hunter Rise page gives more insight on what to expect.

“Violet Mizutsune are leviathans known for their beautiful lilac-colored fur.
They use the fluid they secrete to slide around, targeting their prey with gas-filled bubbles. Though they appear graceful creatures, the facade quickly fades as they envelop themselves in pale flames and bathe their surroundings in a beautiful,
but deadly, inferno of white-hot flame.”

Risen Chameleos

At long last, Chameleos, the Elder Dragon of poison and camouflage, is finally receiving an official subspecies. This new version of Chameleos is no joke. As mentioned before with subspecies, they tend to hit harder than their original counterparts, and Risen Chameleos is no exception. While maintaining all of its original camouflage abilities, its poison attacks are now deadlier than ever, and it’s far more aggressive than normal Chameleos. Fans often state Chameleos as being one of the weakest Elder Dragons in the game, but with this new subspecies, things might take a dramatic turn for this monster.

The official Monster Hunter Rise page gives more information on what players should know regarding Risen Chameleos.

“Risen Chameleos are elder dragons that have found a way to overcome their affliction. By suppressing the Qurio virus, they have gained great strength and new abilities. They now boast superior poison and physicality, sending you off into a toxic nightmare if you lose sight of them.”
