Monster Hunter: World Launches January 2018


Monster Hunter: World is set to be the largest Monster Hunter adventure ever known! The game is by far the franchises most ambitious entry, and will be seeing a release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 2018, worldwide! The game will also be making it’s way to Windows PC, but at a later date which is yet to be determined.

During the Tokyo Game Show Sony Press Conference presentation, a new trailer for the game was revealed, which showcased new creatures and environments. Alongside the official release date reveal, Capcom has announced a Digital Deluxe Edition and a physical Collector’s Edition for the game in North America:

The newly announced Digital Deluxe Edition for North America is MSRP $69.99 and includes the digital game, plus additional customizable options that can be used in-game: a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter. The PS4 version of the Digital Deluxe Edition also includes 14 weapon-themed PSN avatars. The contents for the Digital Deluxe Edition will also be available for purchase separately on January 26.

The North American physical Collector’s Edition includes a physical copy of the game, voucher for the additional customizable options from the Digital Deluxe Edition (a Samurai Set skin, three gestures, two sticker sets, plus an extra face paint and hair style option for the hunter), a 32 page hardcover art book, high-quality flagship monster statue, and digital soundtrack code all bundled in a custom collector’s box for MSRP $149.99.


Those who are in Japan will also be receive some goodies, as Sony has revealed a Monster Hunter: World themed PlayStation 4 Pro console, which will release alongside the game.

I’m actually pretty stoked for Monster Hunter: World, and while I’m a bit sad that the game will likely never see a release on the Nintendo Switch, it’s a bit easier to digest knowing that Nintendo will likely receive many many more exclusive Monster Hunter titles down the road.
