Capcom has revealed a major surprise for Monster Hunter World today for the PS4 and Xbox One. This is a collaboration event between Monster Hunter and Devil May Cry that will go live sometime later this year. The collaboration should be available as one of the several event quests that have been released for Monster Hunter World so far including Street Fighter and Horizon Zero Dawn.
Capcom Unity has shared more details on what type of event and gear will be expected from this collaboration.
You’ll get to fight hellish foes in Monster Hunter: World to earn this devious combination of the Force Edge and Alastor. In Monster Hunter, that weapon falls in the Charge Blade category, and typically features a hefty shield that, when combined with its matching sword, can turn into a massive axe. As you can see, we’re putting a bit of a DMC twist to the formula and leaving the shield out of the picture altogether (you’ll still be able to guard though) and instead of a sword turning into an axe, you’ll get a Force Edge that turns into a massive Alastor. I, for one, cannot wait to wield one of these and slash a Deviljho in the face… to see if it cries. Please stay tuned for more information on when this content will be available. It will be available to all Monster Hunter: World players; you just need to complete the right Event Quest when the time comes.
The reveal trailer is shown below and it gives us a first look at the design for the weapons and character costumes that will be available as part of this collaboration.
Monster Hunter World is available now for the PS4 and Xbox One. The game is also set to launch in Autumn 2018 for the PC.
