The upcoming Monster Hunter: World received a new trailer recently that covers the game quite extensively and it is looking great.
While I am wary as to how the game will sell, which is a concern considering it has an obviously much larger budget than the 3DS games, I am still looking forward to playing Monster Hunter: World once it is released next year.
At this year’s Tokyo Game Show, the queues to play the game were similarly epic as per any of the mainline 3DS releases and I hope that means the game will do well once it is finally released.
From what the game has to offer though, this looks like a solid Monster Hunter entry and one that will be playable on modern consoles such as the PS4 and Xbox One.
However, as I have said in the past, Monster Hunter as a series didn’t come into its own until it moved onto portable gaming platforms. Even though the first few games were released on the PS2, the most widely bought console in existence, it was the local co-operative play on gaming handhelds like the PSP that transformed the fortunes of the series.
This is why the Switch version of Monster Hunter Double Cross is so interesting and why it is frustrating to see that the game has yet to get a Western release.
In any case, Monster Hunter: World will be out early next year and it is looking great but I only hope it sells enough to warrant its increased budget.
Monster Hunter: World is released worldwide for PS4 and Xbox One on January 26. There will also be a PC version of the game released at a later date.
