Today DualShockers was at Capcom’s booth at Tokyo Game Show, playing and recording the new Monster Hunter World demo available on the show floor.
The demo included the recently-revealed Wildspire Waste area, and the possibility to butt heads (rather literally) with a nasty critter named Barroth, that many Monster Hunter fans will be familiar with.
As usual, I tried to do just a bit of exploration before heading straight to the monster, but since we were in four player co-op, I couldn’t really wait too much.
Hunting a Barroth poses some challenges, mainly represented by its armored head, that will repel attacks and stagger you. Like most monsters in this game, it moves around a lot, trying to keep its rear protected.
We also get to see, besides the spectacular visuals, another look at the infighting among monsters, that can happen in the world of the game.
You can check out the video below, and if you want to see more, you can also enjoy the stage show hosted by Capcom giving a look at character creation, story and more, the latest trailer, the charming PS4 Pro “Rathalos Edition,” and the dedicated panel from San Diego Comic Con.
The game will launch worldwide on January 26th, for PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC release coming at a later date.
