Monster Hunter: World's beta was a total blast

December 13, 2017 1 min read

Monster Hunter has always been a wildly successful series in Japan, but it has struggled to get a foothold in the West. Despite every major entry being localized (excluding Monster Hunter XX), the games have just not resonated with a majority of gamers.

In the first reveal trailer for Monster Hunter: World, Capcom seemingly westernized the art style and simplified some of the more obtuse elements of the game to appeal to a wider audience. This had longtime fans wary of World’s final product. After playing roughly five hours of this weekend’s beta, I can safely say that no one had anything to worry about as Monster Hunter: World is still Monster Hunter, for better or worse.
