The wait is over. Players all over the world are starting to get their hands on the hotly anticipated Monster Hunter Rise.

Capcom’s latest entry into the hit Monster Hunter series has just released on the Nintendo Switch, and with it, a day one update.

Here are all the details you need to know about the update, including what it changes and how big it is.

How big is the Monster Hunter Rise Day One Update?

Thankfully for memory conscious Nintendo Switch owners, the Monster Hunter Rise day one update isn’t a big one.

It clocks in at precisely 600mb which isn’t too bad, all things considered.

What does the Monster Hunter Rise Day One Update fix? Patch notes.

As you can imagine, with a patch that’s only 600MB, there aren’t a great deal of changes. As such, Capcom hasn’t really released an extensive set of patch notes. Instead, this is what they’ve shared:

Main Additions / Changes

  • Access to the content from the Deluxe Kit, as well as the add-on content from pre-order bonuses and amiibo bonuses.

Bug Fixes / Miscellaneous

  • Miscellaneous bug fixes have been made.

Effectively, they’ve just released the Deluxe Edition content to players alongside the pre-order bonuses and Amiibo functionality.
