Massive Monster Hunter: World Guide Coming to Japan Next Month

Hunters, your new Bible is on its way.

Monster Hunter: World is a fantastic game that's jam-packed with all kinds of details and secrets that make its ecology a lot of fun to observe.

Monster Hunter: World is, in other words, the perfect game for a big, beefy game guide—and would you look at that? Japan's getting one next month.

"If you had a strategy guide, you could beat me! But you don't, so you can't! Ohhhh!"

This big ol' beast of a strategy guide clocks in at 1,008 pages, and it's filled to bursting with facts, tips, and information. There are chapters explaining how life as a Hunter works in the wild world of Astera, the best techniques for taking down monsters, detailed quest breakdowns, how to make good use of your Felyne pal, how to net the best materials for upgrading your equipment, and tons more.

The book is available on March 24, and it sells for ¥2,916 (about $30 USD) on Amazon Japan. Unfortunately, the guide is only available in Japanese for now, but if you're looking for tips on how to become the best Hunter you can possibly be, we've got tips, tricks, and guides for literally every aspect of Monster Hunter: World. Bury yourself in them.
