Cooperative hunting game Wild Hearts is expanding its menagerie of monstrosities on 6th April, with the release of the Lethal Blossoms update on PS5.
Lethal Blossoms adds the new Kemono species, Murakumo, in addition to weapons, armour, a "spinning top" style Karakuri, and more, described as the title's largest update to date. Further, an additional content update is scheduled for 20th April, with more monsters and a new type of quest, Serial Hunts, promised.

Not picked it up yet because I'm still slowly going through MHR Sunbreak... Once I'm done there and the need for monster murder begins to consume me again I'll grab Wild Hearts.
Something tells me, Wild Hearts isn't doing very well in regards to sales figures...
Just a guess.
I really like this game but me and my friends hit a the Mighty Lavaback difficulty spike and havent been able to overcome it. Sadly they've stopped playing it and I moved to HFW again to get ready for the Burning Shores DLC 🤷🏾♂️
@Blacksmith1985 PC sales are estimated in in the low 100k. Weekly sales would coincide with a similar figure on PS5 in Japan alone. Since the west don’t post exact numbers it’s hard to say how many actually sold, but I’d guesstimate around 500k total sales. The game had a rocky launch with a high volume of glitches on consoles, which my understanding is that the Xbox Series S has it the worst, while many issues on Xbox remain unresolved. Many of the issues on PS5 have since been resolved.
Currently WH has roughly 2k active players on PC at 13:00 UTC so it’s more popular among Japanese players, and a trough of about 800 players during both European and American prime times.
By comparison, Monster Hunter World currently has ~13k players, and MH Rise has ~10k players on Steam.
One issue with using Steam as a litmus for Wild Hearts though is that Koei is not known for producing hit PC games, so it’s likely that the console versions sold more than the PC version.
I'll pick this game up eventually when it's $20 New, happy to see it's still being supported.
