To celebrate the release of Devil May Cry HD Collection on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Capcom has announced a Devil May Cry collaboration for Monster Hunter: World.
The collaboration, due out “later this year,” will enable players to craft a weapon described as a “devious combination of the Force Edge and Alastor from the Devil May Cry series.”
Here is a description of the collaboration, 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 available now worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (the Xbox One version is only available in North America and Europe). A PC version is due out this fall.
