Dante Slashes His Way on to Monster Hunter: World

Capcom recently revealed that everyone’s favorite demon slayer badass from the Devil May Cry series will make a much appreciated appearance  in Monster Hunter: World.

Dante will get to use his full demon slaying and gun-play abilities to hunt monsters, this means that Evony and Ivory will be making a comeback and  Allastor will be his melee weapon that players can use in the game. During the trailer, Dante can be seen bringing the pain to the Odogaron and Diablos monsters in Monster Hunter: World, pretty much treating them as if they were demons from Devil May Cry, which to be honest, they seem like demons after all. Hopefully this may be a good hint that Capcom has not forgotten about the Devil May Cry series and they may indeed be working on Devil May Cry 5.

You can get a glimpse on how he plays by checking out the trailer down below:

“Monster Hunter: World x Devil May Cry Collaboration

We’ve got a pretty awesome surprise for our Devil May Cry and Monster Hunter fans.

You’ll get to fight hellish foes in Monster Hunter: World to earn this devious combination of the Force Edge and Alastor. In Monster Hunter, that weapon falls in the Charge Blade category, and typically features a hefty shield that, when combined with its matching sword, can turn into a massive axe. 

As you can see, we’re putting a bit of a DMC twist to the formula and leaving the shield out of the picture altogether (you’ll still be able to guard though) and instead of a sword turning into an axe, you’ll get a Force Edge that turns into a massive Alastor. I, for one, cannot wait to wield one of these and slash a Deviljho in the face… to see if it cries.

Please stay tuned for more information on when this content will be available. It will be available to all Monster Hunter: World players; you just need to complete the right Event Quest when the time comes.”
