Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise has been very successful since its launch, with the Nintendo Switch version being played and loved by a lot of people, and the PC version getting equal success, crossing 90,000 peak concurrent players on launch day, and of course, the game shipping 8 million copies worldwide combined. While the upcoming expansion for the game, called Sunbreak, is quite far away, Capcom has been updating the game and ironing out the issues as well.

Capcom recently released a new update for the game, patch 3.8.0, for Nintendo Switch. The new update generally brings in quite a few bug fixes, such as for a bug that doesn’t play a monster’s falling animation till the end. The other changes the update brings in are adding in new event quests for the game, along with support for new DLCs. The changes are quite minor, but you can read the patch notes below. Do remember that this patch is not for the PC version.
