According to the Netmarble FAQ, the update button on the Netmarble Launcher will be activated when the game has an update, and it will automatically start the update. It’s also possible to check for updates from [Settings → Check for Updates].

The PC version is still in Beta and for that, it’s impossible at the moment of writing to redeem coupons via the PC Launcher. Players will need to log in on the mobile app or go to the web page to redeem their coupons. The PC version of the Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds requires at least 10GB of free space.
