Monster Hunter World previews a crossover with Devil May Cry

The Monster Hunter series is a set of video games in which you fight giant monsters and then harvest their corpses to make more powerful equipment. The Devil May Cry series is a set of video games in which you fight giant monsters while making flippant bon mots at the monster’s expense, then look really cool while letting them explode or sink into lava or whatever. Clearly, these are two great tastes that taste great together, which is why we’re getting a Devil May Cry crossover event in Monster Hunter World.

We don’t yet have a date for when this is going live, but players will be able to pick up gear based on DMC’s protagonist Dante through an event quest. It does not appear that you’ll also get the ability to deliver armor-piercing lines with a smirk, so you’ll have to provide that for yourself until your teammates beg you to be quiet. Check out the collaboration trailer just past the break.

So first Ryu now Dante?

So I’m PC so I haven’t played the game yet but are these events well received? Just seem so out of place

Yeah this is the norm. Back in 4U you had Link and Samus outfits, in Generations you could dress your plaico like yugioh monsters or jotaro kujo. Thats has been a thing for a long time and its part of the fun.

Some even get begged to come back. Like an ios spin off had a ‘abberant’ sub species of Deviljho for an attack on titan tie in that was all raw muscle like the colossal titan from that anime/manga and they all give exclusive gear to chase even if most of its just cosmetic.

It’s probably coinciding with the HD Collection (DMC + DMC2 + DMC3 Special Edition) they just released today.

Better yet – DMC 1 – is free to Twitch Prime members through April the 6th. It’s under your loot icon on the top left (on the web I’m not sure how to access loot on the desktop app).
