Today Capcom released an extensive trailer for the upcoming mainline game of the Monster Hunter franchise, Monster Hunter World.
The trailer, narrated by the handler that serves pretty much as the advisor of the player, starts by giving a look at the story of the game, and at some of the major NPCs that we’ll encounter.
After that, we move on to take a look at the world and at the monsters, like Great Jagras and Anjanath, then moving to how to track them down. We see many of the features of the game and the gadgets that we’ll be able to take advantage to.
The trailer also shows the palico buddies and their ability to befriend monsters and even to ride them. Last, but not least, we get a good look at the weapons. It’s a lot to take in, and it looks awesome.
You can enjoy it below.
