Monster Hunter World New Gameplay Videos Showcase All Weapon Types


Capcom is pushing Monster Hunter World as much as possible since its release. With the game being the first home console and PC entry in the series since quite a few years, it's not surprising that Capcom is showing as much as possible of it before release.

A few hours ago, the Japanese publisher released several gameplay videos which showcase all of the game's weapon types. Some of them behave differently than in previous entries in the series, so even Monster Hunter veterans will want to check them out.

Earlier this week, more Monster Hunter World footage emerged online. The footage, taken during the SDCC panel, showcases more weapons, the Signal Flare and more.

Monster Hunter World will also mark the official series debut on PC in the West. As such, Capcom is taking extra care in developing the PC version of the game.

Yeah, it’s… as you said, it’s just a resources and manpower issue. We’re developing the game with our internal Capcom team in Osaka – the Monster Hunter team. We haven’t really put out that much on PC before that’s been developed internally, so we’re just asking for a little bit more time on the PC version so we can bring you a more optimised, fine-tuned version.

Other than that, you can see that our strategy is for the other versions to release everything in the same time, in the same launch window, worldwide. This is the first time ever for a Monster Hunter title. There’s no wait in between the Japanese version and the Western one – we just need a little bit more time to get the PC version done right.

Monster Hunter World launches next year on PC and consoles.
