Demo - Is The Save Data Transferrable to The Main Game?

Save Data is NOT Transferrable

According to the official website, the demo save data cannot be transferred to the main game. Even if you worked hard to gather items at the demo, you cannot bring them to the main game, so let us just have fun with it.

There is a bonus for players that played the Demo


Although the demo save data cannot transferred to the main game, if you keep the save data of the Monster Hunter Rise Demo on your Switch, you will be able to claim some items as a demo player bonus. If you delete the save data of the demo, you will not be able to claim the bonus, so be careful not to erase it!
