New Monster Hunter Rise Patch Fixes a Big Save Data Bug

A new patch update for Capcom's Monster Hunter Rise released today has resolved a major save data corruption bug tied to having certain poses set to the game's action bar or radial menu. Previously, having the Attack Pose Set and Hurt Pose Set tied to either of the above and trying to continue the video game from its title would cause save data to be corrupted, but thanks to Ver. 1.1.2, that should no longer be a problem.

The patch also fixes a number of other bugs, and while the one described above might have been a bit unusual to trigger, it's still the biggest takeaway from the new patch. Literally nearly every line of today's patch notes begins with "fixed a bug," which is generally a good sign of things progressing in the right direction.

Here are the full patch notes, straight from Capcom:

Base/Facility

  • Fixed a bug causing the controls to stop responding when you sit down on a bench in the village and use the "Call Cohoot" gesture and perform certain actions.
  • Fixed a bug causing menu options to be inaccessible when you enter the Gathering Hub with your Cohoot on your arm and sit down on a bench and open the Gestures menu.

  • Fixed a bug causing save data to be corrupted when you try to continue the game from the Title Menu after quitting the game while having the Attack Pose Set and Hurt Pose Set equipped to the Action Bar or the radial menu.
