Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter: World will be getting a special Devil May Cry-themed costume and weapon in an upcoming event quest for hunters who want their party to start getting a little crazy.
The reveal comes in the form of a near pitch-perfect trailer that mimics the sights and sounds of the original Devil May Cry, showing numerous monsters challenging the legendary devil hunter. The costume itself is just Dante’s original outfit, red coat and all, but not as a full armor set like the previous Aloy and Ryu events. The costume will also feature male and female variations.
Not only will hunters receive these great costumes, but you’ll get to fight these hellish foes with both Dante’s Force Edge and Alastor swords. In the form of a Charge Blade weapon, players will be able to use Force Edge that can transform into a massive Alastor instead of the typical axe. Much like Ryu, it looks like Dante will also be getting his own special emotes involving spinning and shooting Ebony and Ivory.
Capcom hasn’t set a date for the Monster Hunter and Devil May Cry collaboration yet. However, according to the company’s blog, the costume will be available to all Monster Hunter: World players; you just need to complete the right Event Quest when the times comes.
This announcement comes perfectly timed with the release of the Devil May Cry HD Collection, available now for $29.99 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
