How To Change Your Gender in Monster Hunter: Rise?

The main shindig happens in Kamura Village where you have to chat up the courier. You’ll be given a Character Edit Voucher. The first one is free. Albeit subsequent Character Edit Vouchers cost $2.99. For a well-requested feature, CAPCOM didn’t skimp out on the opportunity to cash out.

That’s pretty much all you need to do to change your skin color, gender, and the finer details of your character in Monster Hunter: Rise, but one free voucher and a $2.99 price tag seem like an unneeded micro-transaction. If it’s a one-time thing, then you’re good to go.
