Sonic the Hedgehog is coming to Monster Hunter Rise, Capcom revealed Wednesday via a trailer.

Sonic the Hedgehog Meets Monster Hunter Rise in Upcoming Collaboration

Monster Hunter Rise has seen plenty of potentially oddball crossover events, but they always seem to gel in the already slightly ridiculous world. This upcoming collaboration will bring a special Sonic-themed layered armor set for the player character to the game that features Sonic's trademark red and white shoes and spiky blue spines.

There will also be a Sonic Costume for the player's Palico, and a "Canyne Tails" costume for their Palamute, the latter of which draws on Miles "Tails" Prower, Sonic's two-failed fox sidekick.

The announcement trailer also shows players running around and collecting Sonic-style golden rings, though it's not immediately clear what function those rings will serve, or, indeed, if they'll appear in the crossover at all.

Either way, the crossover kicks off Nov. 26, and will be available for PC players as soon as the game launches on that platform in January.
