Monster Hunter World Getting Devil May Cry DLC

  • Wed, 14 Mar 2018 14:52

Monster Hunter World will receive Devil May Cry-themed armour and weapons in an upcoming event quest.

Revealed in an unbelievably excellent trailer (below), the armour will work similarly to the Horizon: Zero Dawn crossover, in that it transforms your hunter entirely into Dante, or a gender-swapped female Dante.

The crossover also includes a new Charge Blade variant, described as a "devious combination of the Force Edge and Alastor" swords from the original Devil May Cry.

It also looks as though there's an Ebony and Ivory damaging taunt, not unlike the Street Fighter crossover's Hadouken - it's not clear if that will be a microtransaction in the same way.

No release date has been announced for the event, but it's likely that the quests required to get each item type will be split up over multiple weeks.

The announcement makes for a lot of Devil May Cry this week, with Devil May Cry HD Collection getting a release today. It's led some to believe that the speculation of a new DMC game is true, and this is Capcom in promotional mode.

Monster Hunter World was among our highest-rated games of the year, even before this happened - check out our review to find out why.

Joe Skrebels is IGN's UK News Editor, and he will be grinding for this Charge Blade as soon as is humanly possible. Follow him on Twitter.
