Grab These Monster Hunter Rise Collaboration DLCs Before They’re Gone for Good

As of 21 January 2024, all collaborative Monster Hunter Rise DLC for Sonic the Hedgehog, Sengan-en and Universal Studios Japan will become permanently unavailable to redownload – regardless of whether you own it or not.

In a post made on X (formerly known as Twitter), the official Monster Hunter account strongly advised all players download the content packs as soon as possible or face losing their digital valuables forever.

Here’s a breakdown of everything being removed, separated by collaboration type:

Sonic the Hedgehog DLC

  • Event Quest: Gotta Hoard Fast! (“Sonic Costume” Palico layered armor, “Canyne Tails” Canyne layered armor, and figurines for Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles)
  • Event Quest: Super Shady Look-alike (“Sonic Wear” Hunter layered armor)

Universal Studios Japan DLC

  • Event Quest: USJ – Shrine Showdown! (“Azure Star Blade I” Hunter weapon, “Azure Era Wyrmbow I” Hunter weapon, “Azure Age” Hunter armor set)
  • Event Quest: USJ – Arzuros Onslaught! (“Azure Era” Palico armor set, “F Azure Era Fan” Palico weapon, “Azure Era” Canyne armor set, “C Azure Era Wyrmblade” Canyne weapon)
  • Downloadable Palico: MEOW LIMIT!

Sengan-en DLC

  • Downloadable Palico: Yasu

The exact reasoning behind the delisting isn’t specified, although the simplest explanation likely involves licensing deals coming to an end between Capcom and the various collaboration partners.

Earlier in the year, Monster Hunter Rise’s expansion, Sunbreak, nabbed the Grand Prize and an Excellence Award at the annual Japan Game Awards, with the Best Sales Award going to Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet.

Originally released for the Nintendo Switch in 2021 before making the jump to PC and other consoles within the following two years, Monster Hunter Rise is the sixth instalment in the long-running and legendary Capcom franchise.

In other Capcom-related news, the release date for Dragon’s Dogma 2 was recently announced during a livestreamed product showcase.
