The update, Version 2.0, will feature new monsters such as Chameleos and Apex Rathalos. The 2.0 update will take up approximately 0.9 GB of extra space on the system or SD card, according to Capcom. For those who have not updated the game since its release last month, they will need to ensure that at least 1.5 GB of space is free on their systems.
