Capcom has announced a new digital event for the Monster Hunter series, which will take place on May 26, 2021 at 4:00 pm Italian time and will be streamed as usual. What will we talk about?

Apparently we will be faced with something very similar to the previous event. Then the new contents of Monster Hunter Rise will be illustrated, which will be introduced with the 3.0 update, and we will return to talk about Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, probably with new details and a new trailer.

It's hard to say if there will also be additional announcements, but given the experience with previous Capcom events, we feel like ruling out. At least we feel we can exclude large presentations.

As always in these cases, we at geekinco will follow the presentation live on Twitch, commenting on everything that will be shown and announced.

In a follow-up tweet, Capcom also revealed that the Version 3.0 update for Monster Hunter Rise is 'approximately 1.4 GB' so that players can free up Nintendo Switch storage space ahead of time. Capcom has previously said that Rise would get 'an additional story chapter taking place after the ending' in May – which should hopefully address players' complaints that the current ending seems unfinished. The version 3.0 update should also add 'several' new monsters, which we can expect to be introduced in the event.

Here's what comes in every edition of Monster Hunter Stories 2 so you can decide what edition of the game to pick up. We scored Monster Hunter Rise an 8 in our review, calling it a 'thrilling step forward in the series' evolution toward the new normal World so boldly introduced'.
