Megaman Palico join Monster Hunter World

Our Palico buddies from Monster Hunter love to dress up in some unexpected costumes, which isn’t changing for the upcoming Monster Hunter: World. At the opening ceremony of the Playstation Experience 2017, Capcom dropped a new trailer showing off some of the characters you’ll meet and some of the beasts you’ll hunt like the Nergigante, as well as an cameo costume apperance of a Palico dressed-up as Megaman.

The Megaman costume will transform your Palico as a chunky, 8-bit, cel-shaded classic Megaman, while delivering some classic Megaman chiptunes while you hunt. It’s a bit strange to see at first but it does mark for an interesting little cross-over item.

Monster Hunter: World is set to release on January 26th 2018 on PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC version coming later. Capcom recently announced Megaman Legacy Collection 1 & 2 for the Switch, a Megaman X Collection and a brand new Megaman 11 for consoles and PC for next year.
