A new update has been released for Monster Hunter Rise, bringing the Nintendo Switch game up to version 3.7.

These Event Quests can be downloaded from Senri the Mailman, with a new one going live on Fridays at 00:00 GMT each week.

Monster Hunter Rise has found a lot of success on Switch so far, selling more than 7.5 million copies as of October. Given how many fans the game has found, it's not surprising to see Capcom putting a lot of focus on adding new content, and squashing the game's bugs. Hopefully, this latest update will help keep players invested!

Monster Hunter Rise is available now, exclusively on Nintendo Switch, with a PC version releasing next year. Readers can check out all of our previous coverage of the game right here.
