Monster Hunter: World Will Get A Devil May Cry Weapon Later This Year

After the announcement that Monster Hunter: World will receive Mega Man 11 themed items in-game, there’s a new one in town. Capcom has announced that in celebration of Devil May Cry HD hitting stores, the famous RPG will receive a Dante themed weapon sometime this year.

This particular event will come later this year to celebrate the launch of the Devil May Cry HD Collection on Xbox One and PS4. The collaboration between the two franchises will bring a new weapon, unlockable by all players who complete the dedicated quest. This weapon will be a Force Edge able to transform into Alastor. Yuri Araujo on Capcom Unity announced:

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.

Even though we have no stated date for this Monster Hunter: World event in collaboration with Devil May Cry, Capcom has released a trailer showing Dante in action against some of the game’s trademark beasts. The Demon Hunter costume that Dante wears in the trailer will be also coming to Monster Hunter: World so get ready for some stylish hunts.

Monster Hunter World sales have apparently broken 7.5 million units, showing that the game is still going strong despite it having come out an entire month ago. It remains to be seen how the game will hold up when it finally releases on PC too. As for Devil May Cry, its HD Collection has just launched on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
