Monster Hunter World gets a release date!

 

At Sony’s Tokyo Game Show Press Conference today, Capcom announced that the highly anticipated Monster Hunter World will be launching on January 26th 2017 on PS4 and at a later date for PC. The announcement came by an impressive trailer which highlighted some new locations and environments including the Pukei-Pukei and Nergigante, as well as the Coral Highlands stage and Astera, the base of operations for the Research Commission.

Capcom also revealed details on the Digital Deluxe and physical Collectors Edition coming to North America in a special Press Release:

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.

Meanwhile, Japan will get a special Monster Hunter PS4Pro Edition. No news on if this will also find its way to North America.
