Monster Hunter Rise Buddy Handler Iori is an NPC that you’ll have to talk to fairly early in the game, in order to complete one of the quests. The game points you towards the Buddy Plaza, which is where Iori is in MH Rise, but doesn’t tell you where that is. To top it off, you can’t fast travel there before you visit the location for the first time. It can be a bit tricky, especially for people new to Monster Hunter. That’s why we put together our MHR Buddy Handler Iori Location – Monster Hunter Rise guide.
Where to Find Buddy Handler Iori Location in Monster Hunter Rise
To find Buddy Handler Iori in Monster Hunter Rise, you have to visit him in Buddy Plaza. The problem is that, when you first arrive to the village, you aren’t able to fast travel to the Plaza. If you attempt it, you’ll get the “This location currently cannot be selected” message. The trick is that you actually have to go to the plaza on foot before the game allows you to fast-travel there. So, where is the Buddy Plaza in MH Rise?
To get to the Plaza and find the location of Buddy Handler Iori in MHR, with your back to the red bridge and facing the Steelworks building, head to the right. In the distance, past all the shops, you’ll see a rope bridge. Head across it and step through the “hole.” This will take you straight to Buddy Plaza; you’ll even get a nice cutscene when you get there for the first time. Iori is not difficult to spot; there aren’t many points of interest in the area. If you can’t find him, check out the screenshots below.
There you have it, that’s where you find the location of Buddy Handler Iori in MH Rise. If you need help with other stuff, check out some of our other Monster Hunter Rise guides.
