Monster Hunter Rise is crashing for Switch users

There are plenty of methods you can follow to fix the crashing. Here are some.

Try Restarting your console

I have faced many errors on my Switch Lite till date and honestly, I have managed to fix the majority of them by just giving my device a quick restart or reboot. The FreeBSD OS inside Nintendo Switch is a pretty stable OS. So try rebooting your Switch once. And I am sure that the problem would go away.

Repairing Corrupted Data in Monster Hunter Rise

If your game is crashing due to any sort of corrupted data, then you can easily fix it by using the ‘Check for Corrupt Data’ feature on your Switch.

All you have to do is go to the System Settings menu of your console and select Data Management from there. From Data Management, select ‘Software’. A list of all your stored games should appear. Choose Monster Hunter Rise from the list. Scroll all the way to the bottom and select Check for Corrupt Data.

The whole process might take a few minutes so be patient. After it is done, just select ‘End’. If the error doesn’t get fixed, you might have to redownload Monster Hunter Rise.

Resetting Cache could also solve the problem

To reset the system cache of your Switch, all you have to do is:

  • Go to System Settings
  • Scroll all the way to the bottom and select ‘System’
  • Again scroll all the way to the bottom and select ‘Formatting Options’
  • Finally, select the ‘Reset Cache’ option

Try installing the game on the Internal Storage

If none of the methods mentioned above work. Then installing the game on the Internal Storage of your console might do the job. Just uninstall Monster Hunter Rise from your SD Card, remove the card from your device and install the game on your Internal Storage.

Now, there are some errors that can be fixed by the users and there are some that require attention from the developers. If the crashes are happening to a lot of players then the devs would most probably release a patch to fix it.
