Capcom will be holding a digital event for Monster Hunter next week. 

On Twitter, Capcom announced that they will be holding a digital event focusing on Monster Hunter. The digital event will take place on April 27th at 7:00 a.m. PST. The event will give details on Monster Hunter Rise's upcoming 2.0 update, which is planned to come out this month. The event will also give more information on the upcoming Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin. The tweet also stated that Rise's 2.0 update will take up approximately 0.9GB of space. If this is the first time that the game is being updated, than the required space for the update will instead be 1.5GB. 

Monster Hunter Rise's 2.0 update was announced last month. The update will be free, providing extra content to players for no additional cost. The update will bring back the Chameleos, and will also be the debut of Apex Rathalos. Other additional monsters will be added to the game as well. The 2.0 update will also unlock the "Hunter Rank" cap, along with other features. It was also announced that a 3.0 update will be coming to Rise at a later date. This update will add additional monsters, as well as an additional ending to the game's story arc. No release window was given for the 3.0 update. 

It was also announced that Monster Hunter Rise plushies are on the way (via GameSpot). There will be ten different plushies in total, all of which are chibi versions of various monsters that can be encountered in Rise. The plushies will be released in batches, with the first set releasing in August. Each plushie will be about 7.8 inches long, and will cost $35 each. 

Monster Hunter Rise is available now for the Nintendo Switch. Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will release for PC and Switch on July 9th.
