Capcom's Devil May Cry HD collection is here, and its arrival comes bundled with an exciting bit of news: Dante, devil-killer extraordinaire, is coming to Monster Hunter: World.
And where Dante goes, his insane array of weapons follows. The half-demon can arm himself in Monster Hunter: World with a combination of the Force Edge and Alastor. As Capcom's #1 Monster Hunter expert, Yuri Araujo, points out on Capcom Unity's official announcement for the team-up, the heavy weapon works a bit differently compared to similar blades in Monster Hunter.
"[T]hat 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," Araujo writes. "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."
