Tokyo Game Show (TGS) is underway this week in Japan, and last night Sony held their annual pre-TGS press conference to showcase new games and other announcements. While there were a host of new games announced, one very big piece of news was also revealed: Monster Hunter: World's release date.
Capcom mentioned the game would be releasing sooner than most people probably realized: January 26, 2018. This effectively makes it the first big AAA game release of 2018, and is also sure to make Monster Hunter fans pretty happy to boot.
Also announced were Digital Deluxe and physical Collector's Edition versions of the game alongside the standard version; pre-orders for all three start today. The Digital Deluxe Edition 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.
As for the North American version of the physical Collector's Edition, it 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 for $149.99.
Capcom also released a new trailer for the game, which can be seen below.
Monster Hunter: World kicks off the hunt globally on January 26, 2018 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC version to follow sometime after.
