GungHos online arena warrior Ninjala launched in June last year as a free-to-play Switch exclusive and has regularly built a solid fanbase in the months since. Back in January, GungHo celebrated six million downloads, so it definitely does something right. During the five seasons (so far) the game has had several ‘collaborations’ – time limits with other game series – and the latest collaboration gives Monster Hunter RiseThemes avatars, objects and more for the game.
Scheduled to start at 19.00 PT 27 April, the collaboration will last for one month to 6:59 PT May 26th, the developers posted a tweet as well as one of their regular developer diary videos that provides a complete overview of the theme elements discussed (see below).
Players will be able to provide Monster Hunter Rise armor, knock out Monster Hunter emotions (including “BBQ Success”
The juiciest of these collab elements – the “styles” of armor – will be associated with a new feature: the unique name “Collab Gacha”, a Gumball Machine that will probably introduce a chance element in whatever style you end up with.
Quite how expensive this collapse will be for Monster Hunter fans, is currently a bit unclear. Previous Ninjala collabs included the Puzzles & Dragons series and – perhaps most importantly – Sonic the Hedgehog and buddies. The latter came with some really impressive prices if you wanted the cosmetic Sonic skins – the amount of Jala (Ninjala’s currency in the game) needed to grab all three available skins came to a whopping £ 48. Gulp!
We can only hope that this new equipment is a little cheaper, but it seems unlikely, no? The word ‘gacha’ usually means that the wallet is in kind.
