Monster Hunter Rise players can now add two more special buddies to their hunting party. Capcom is distributing a Palamute and Palico based on ones used by the Monster Hunter community team.
The Palamute is named Thor, while the Palico is named Mimi. To receive them, first speak to Senri the Mailman in Kamura Village and download the buddies from the Add-on Content menu. After that, talk to Iori the Buddy Handler at the Buddy Plaza and select Hire a Special Buddy to add them to your roster.

These aren’t the only special buddies available right now. Capcom is also distributing a Palamute named Wanogre, who is based on one used by a member of the Monster Hunter Rise development team. You can also receive Wanogre by downloading it from Senri and then hiring it at the Buddy Plaza.
