To celebrate the re-release of Devil May Cry HD Collection on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, Capcom has announced a Devil May Cry collaboration for Monster Hunter: World.
The new content is coming “later this year” and will let players craft weapons that are likened as “devious combination of the Force Edge and Alastor from the Devil May Cry series.”
Featured above, you can view the announcement trailer for the new content. Here’s a brief rundown on the new collab, via Capcom Unity:
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.
Monster Hunter World is currently available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release set for sometime this fall. In case you missed it, you can find our review for the game here (we highly recommend it!).
