Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak from Capcom is out worldwide on Nintendo Switch and Steam. I played the expansion for review on both Switch and Steam. Read my review of the PC version here, Steam Deck performance review here, and Nintendo Switch review here. Today, Capcom released the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak version 12.0.1 update patch notes for Switch and Steam. This is the first patch following the second free title update arriving with three new monsters, support for new event quests, new paid DLC, Layered Weapons, and more. Watch the free title update 2 trailer below:

Bug Fixes and Balance Adjustments

  • Fixed an issue causing save data size to increase when setting augmented armor to the “Vaunted Qurious Crafter” page on the Guild Card.
  • After looking into the issue caused by repeated input of gestures and pose sets, we have adjusted the game to accept a maximum of 4 inputs per second in order to maintain Lobby stability.
  • Fixed an issue causing an error to occur if you try to claim the “Lost Code” Hunter layered weapon pack (14 types) all at once.
  • Fixed an issue where the great swords “Chrome Heaven”, “Antique Machina GS”, and “Lordly Deathcap” would have an insufficient number of Anomaly Slots.
  • Fixed an issue causing Risen Chameleos to behave differently for players with an Anomaly Research Level below 100 and players with an Anomaly Research Level of 100 or higher.
  • Fixed an issue causing Violet Mizutsune to keep going around in circles if the player uses a Tricktoad under specific conditions during the M6★ quest “A Mysterious Pale Flame.”
  • Fixed an issue causing the game to crash if the player uses the “Equipment Search” function at the Smithy or in the Item Box if they do not have the right to play “Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.”
  • The game now no longer autosaves at the start of a cutscene.
  • Players will no longer be able to accept unauthorized Anomaly Investigations at the Quest Counter.
  • If the player joins an Anomaly Investigation via a Join Request, and the quest is identified as unauthorized, a chat log message will now be displayed to notify the player of this fact.
  • Fixed a bug causing the game to crash when connecting to the “Nahimic Audio” sound utility software.
