Capcom has announced that it will be delisting several pieces of Monster Hunter Rise collaboration content in January.
This comes from a new post shared to Twitter today (November 29) where the publisher stated that the Sonic the Hedgehog, Universal Studios Japan, and Sengan-en DLC content will no longer be available in the game to download after January 21, 2024 (via VGC).
Players who currently own the DLC will be able to continue using them as long as they have it downloaded before the deadline.
However, after the content has been delisted, even those who own it won't be able to download it again and will therefore not be able to receive the rewards or obtain the respective quests.
“Please download this free content before [January 21] to keep using it as normal. You won’t be able to redownload it," Capcom said.
Heads up, hunters! The following #MHRise collaboration content will no longer be available to download from January 21, 2024 if you do not already have it. Please download this free content before then to keep using it as normal. You won't be able to redownload it. pic.twitter.com/2fwkplEZvwNovember 29, 2023
The collaboration content that will be delisted can be read below:
Sonic the Hedgehog
- Event Quest: Gotta Hoard Fast!
Rewards: Sonic Costume Palico armor, Tails Canyne layered armor, Sonic, Knuckles, Tails figurines.
- Event Quest: Super Shay Look-alike
Rewards: Sonic Wear Hunter layered armor

- Event Quest: USJ – Azuros Onslaught!

Capcom hasn't stated the reason for the content's removal, but it's likely due to an expired licensing agreement.
Similar licensing issues have occurred before, like in the instance of Friday the 13th: The Game which is being forced to close its online servers indefinitely in 2024 after its license expires and it's delisted from sale at the end of 2023.
