Monster Hunter Rise amiibo
There are three new amiibo coming with the release of Monster Hunter Rise. They are as follows:
We’ll go into some more detail for each amiibo below, but be warned that these are extremely limited stock right now, so pick them up wherever you can before they’re gone for good.
Magnamalo amiibo Unlocks
The first Monster Hunter Rise amiibo we’re going to take a look at is the Magnamalo amiibo. It is based on a monster from the game, and grants the Sinister Seal Hunter Layered Armour when used.
This amiibo can also be tapped into the game daily to grant a free Lottery Ticket, which is well worth taking advantage of. It’s possible that more functionality will be added once the game launches, but for now that’s what you get with this amiibo.
Palamute amiibo Unlocks
Next up is the Palamute amiibo. These are the dogs that will encounter you out on your hunts. You can ride them around too, which you can learn more about in our Beginner’s guide. This amiibo will grant access to the Sinister Seal Palamute layered armour set. You can see this in the image below:
As well as the Palamute armour, you’ll also get a free Lottery ticket each day for using this amiibo. Make sure you take advantage of this when you can.
Palico amiibo Unlocks
Finally, we have the Palico amiibo. Those who played Monster Hunter World will know the Palicos as small cat friends that follow you out on hunts. They provide vital support and often can really make the difference in tough battles. This Palico amiibo unlocks the Sinister Seal Palico armor set, which you can check out in the image below.
As with the other two amiibo, the Rise Palico amiibo also grants a free Lottery ticket each day. Make sure you take advantage of this.
How to Use amiibo to Play the Lottery
If you want to use your amiibo in Monster Hunter Rise you will need to head to either of the two main merchants. Once you're there, speak to them and select 'Read amiibo'. You can then tap up to three amiibo to get three Lottery entries per day. You'll win items for doing this, so make sure you tap them in each day.
