Monster Hunter: World Special “Spring 2018” Live Stream Coming Soon

Monster Hunter: World Special “Spring 2018” Live Stream Coming Soon

Enter the Deviljho?

All living things get a little frisky in the springtime, and that includes monsters. The scaly denizens of Monster Hunter: World are shifting and stirring, and Capcom has plans to talk about what the monstrous neighborhood has going on this spring via a livestream later this month.

The livestream is scheduled for March 14 at 8 p.m. JST (that'd be 3 a.m. PT—oof. Thanks to Siliconera for the translation). Capcom hasn't said what new info the stream will bring, nor has it shared links to the presentation yet; those are coming soon. There's a good chance we'll see or hear something about the arrival of the brutal Deviljho, a Monster Hunter series super-predator that's supposed to arrive in World sometime this spring.

Capcom hasn't announced an English-language version of the stream, but we might get some sort of community update in the future. Monster Hunter: World is Capcom's best-selling game of all time, and a not-small percentage of those numbers come from sales outside Japan. It was a long and difficult road to push Monster Hunter out of its niche, but all that effort from Capcom and Monster Hunter's fanbase is finally paying off.

People seem to dig the series' deep battle system and interesting ecology—though the adorable Palico warriors offer good incentive to play, too.
