When CEOs are letting employees take a day off for Monster Hunter Rise, you can tell people are excited for Capcom's latest entry. Just ahead of launch, Capcom has revealed it will be releasing a day one patch for Rise.
Coming in at 600MB, it's thankfully quite a small one, and if you've opted for a digital copy, that adds up to about 8GB memory space. Aside from a few unspecified bug fixes, this patch mainly grants access to content within the Deluxe kit, also unlocking pre-order and amiibo bonuses.
Calling this Version 1.1.1, there's not much else here, and Capcom issued these patch notes:
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.
We had excellent things to say in our Rise review. Awarding it 9/10 stars, we called it "a new high-water mark for the franchise", and other publications are similarly impressed. If you're looking to distract yourself until Friday, why not check out recent feature on Monster Hunter's history.
Were you expecting a Day One patch for Rise? Let us know below.
You can play without the day one patch just from the cartridge right?
I didn't pre-order because my local Walmart sells Switch games for $50, which is a large enough discount to make it worth waiting until they have it in stock (which is usually launch day anyway), but I did shell out for the amiibo because apparently I like figurines that much, so I might as well take advantage of them.
My excitement is palpable. Most anticipated release of the year outside of Stories 2 and NMH3. Bring it on.
"Comes in at just 600MB".
That's nice, but it's still 600MB too much.
Got the Deluxe version already on my Switch and this update was included in the pre-download so i'm good to go.
@Zuljaras Yes. If your Switch is offline it won't even know a patch is available, and even if it's online it gives you the option not to update. Which is in contrast to the PS4, which will never run software it knows there's a patch for. I've lost track of the number of times I can't watch YouTube videos because it won't let me until I install an update, which between their size and my download speed always takes all night.
@Zuljaras been playing on a cart all week, no issue here! not sure how this mysteriously obtained copy will work with my deluxe edition though.
I despise post-patching to fix known issues, but post-patching to deliver free content and bonuses to customers is fine by me.
@GetontheStiix @JimmySpades Thank you both for the confirmation!
@Gavintendo It's still a bit, but compared to the massive updates some games have, I'll take it
@JimmySpades I always find it so strange that new physical games at Walmart are so much cheaper than the eshop for digital and other retailers too!
Got this and story of seasons arriving tomorrow, pokemon snap next month (maybe) then mario golf, rune factory 5 and disgaea 6 coming in the few months, looking packed this half the year
Watch out for Zamitros!
Capcom, you have already convinced me that I should buy this.
Why keep promoting it lol
@Gavintendo This is just what the op sarcastically meant, I guess. It's a shame, actually, that they force me to download this data for sake of the features I may never use.
@Medic_Alert how is the 1TB MicroSD card in the Switch? There was a rash of videos on that size card having some issues last year. I know the Switch can support up to 2TB, but there's only one company making this MicroSD card at the moment.
@progx i have a sandisk 1tb card and have been using it since i got my Switch lite and i have had no problems with it.
A 600MB patch is considered small?
@Mountain_Man Yes, we live in a world where 50GB patch are a thing
