Meanwhile, above we can also see the character customization. Our palico partner can be customized, too.
There will also be special equipment. There will be mantles each of which has special effects such as making characters stealthy, resilient to knockbacks and knockdowns, provoking monsters, and enabling characters to glide.
More screenshots showcase the forge in Astella village. You can enhance equipments by using materials and currency. Resetting enhancement is allowed, which gives the spent materials back. Equipment can be produced for both the character and the palico partner. There is even a wishlist that lets you register the equipment you want to make or enhance, and check the necessary materials at any time. Armor and armor sets have their own skills and abilities.
In addition, palico actually can talk to some monsters, and negotiate with them for help.
