Play classic Mega Man tunes as you hunt monsters.

This weekend, PlayStation Plus owners can check out Monster Hunter World on PlayStation 4 in the open beta. In a trailer at PlayStation Experience 2017, Capcom showed of the game and a cute little addition.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Mega Man, players can get 8-bit Mega Man as a companion in Monster Hunter World. While Mega Man accompanies you, wielding different weapons will play classic Mega Man tunes. The trailer was light on details, but it'll probably be a free update for the game.

Monster Hunter World is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 26, 2018, with a PC release coming at a later date.
