When it comes to sharing new facts about the Monster Hunter game, Capcom has been very outspoken. Several Monster Hunter digital activities have been held in recent months to highlight previews and gameplay for both Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. Capcom has just revealed that a new digital festival is on the way, and fans won’t have to wait long to learn more.
The Monster Hunter Digital Event for May may reveal more specifics on Monster Hunter Rise’s upcoming 3.0 title update as well as more information on Monster Hunter Stories 2, an upcoming JRPG. Capcom has also announced that the Monster Hunter Rise 3.0 update will have new monsters and a new plot chapter to wrap up the story, but the rest of the content is still undisclosed.
On May 26th, 2021, at 7 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET/3 p.m. BST, the next digital experience for the long-running franchise will be live-streamed on the Monster Hunter Twitch website. The stream happens to be available for viewing on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter as well. If the previous live stream is any indication, the Rise title update will be released the same day, just a few hours after the stream finishes.
Capcom didn’t provide too many specifics about what to expect during the show, but viewers should expect to see the upcoming creatures and have an in-depth look at Wings of Ruin, which is due out in less than two months.
The required space for installing #MHRise Update Ver. 3.0 is approximately 1.4GB.
However, if this will be your first time updating the game, the required space will be approx. 2.9GB.

Capcom also reported the download size for Monster Hunter Rise’s forthcoming 3.0 update in the same announcement tweet. The latest upgrade will only take up 1.4GB of room for those that have already installed update 2.0 from last month. The needed space for players who have yet to upgrade Rise at all is approximately 2.9GB. Before the upgrade goes online, Switch owners should consider clearing up any additional disk space or purchasing a larger SD card.
Monsters like Teostra, Chameleos, Kushala Daora, and some Apex Monsters were introduced in the 2.0 update, along with a slew of new features and quality-of-life enhancements. It’ll be fun to see what Capcom comes up with next.
