Capcom revealed another popular monster returning to Monster Hunter World via a TV commercial for Japan that appeared today.

The commercial was recorded off the TV and posted on YouTube by user sute aka, and at the end it gives a brief glimpse of Kirin.

While it appears as a unicorn and is named after a traditional beast from Japanese and Asian folklore, is actually an elder dragon in Monster Hunter, and comes with thunder-based attacks, extremely thick skin and a fragile horn serving as a weak point. In the commercial, it’s shown in the Coral Highlands area.

Below you can check out the commercial itself, and a video by YouTube user Arekkz, who explains it better than I ever could.

If you want to see more of Monster Hunter World, you can enjoy a large batch of gameplay showing the Coral Highlands (that appear to be where Kirin makes its lair),  the newest trailer featuring the other elder dragons and morea funny commercial from Sony, and all the news revealed last Friday (including those only for Japan). If you prefer trying the game for yourself, you can also read all the details about the upcoming open beta that will start on January 19th.

The game will relase worldwide on January 26th, for PS4 and Xbox One, with a PC version coming this fall.
