Sonic Frontiers teams up with Monster Hunter for free DLC

Sonic Frontiers’ Monster Hunter DLC is completely free and brings some hunting-themed gear to the blue bolt, alongside camping equipment for cooking up grub

Sonic Frontiers is shaping up to be some sort of Breath of the Wild-ification of the blue bolt. With wide open plains, it’s hard to not make comparisons. One way it does differentiate itself, however, is with a bunch of DLC announcements prior to release. The latest is a collaboration with Capcom for some Monster Hunter-themed items.

Set to come out just a week after the Sonic Frontiers release date, Sega has announced some goodies, including clothes based on a Rathalos, camping gear for cooking, and an in-game mini-game (which looks to be related to cooking a big chunk of meat). The Sonic Frontiers Monster Hunter DLC is also completely free, making the collaboration just a nice bit of fun.

As an avid fan of Monster Hunter Rise, this free DLC might be enough to make me finally place my Sonic Frontiers pre-order. It comes a few months after the release of the MH Sunbreak DLC, a massive expansion that we absolutely love (check out our Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak review for a full rundown of our thoughts).
