Monster Hunter Rise has been slaying it on Switch, capturing fans and sales in huge numbers ever since its launch one month ago. Anyone wondering what comes next will be pleased to know the wait won’t be much longer.

Yes, another Monster Hunter Digital Event is on the way! Featuring news on both Rise’s 2.0 update and the latest info for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, it’s one fans won’t want to miss.

For all you hunter of Kamura Village, Capcom even gave a heads up on space requirements for Rise 2.0. Your Switch will need at least 0.9GB of space for the update, or 1.5GB if you’re not up to date with version downloads. The sharing of that info and previous announcements on this update’s timing makes a same day drop likely.

So far all we know as far as new monsters on the way are the item stealing Elder Dragon Chameleos, and Apex Rathalos as a new threat during Rampages. “Much more” is on the way as well, including “several new monsters” on top of these two per descriptions from Capcom.

The Monster Hunter Digital Event – April 2021 will be held next Tuesday, April 27th, at 7 a.m. PT.
