TGS 2017: Monster Hunter World Stalks its Prey Worldwide in January

Tuesday morning's PlayStation press conference from Tokyo Game Show continued with a look at some new footage for Capcom's upcoming Monster Hunter World.

In addition to some new footage of the game's vast open world, new monster types were seen for the first time.

Monster Hunter World has also been given a release date and it is much sooner than most people have anticipated. Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto revealed that the game is set to release worldwide on January 26, 2018.

On top of that, the folks at PlayStation are offering up a way to hunt down giant beasts in style. A Monster Hunter version of the PlayStation 4 Pro was unveiled, with a red scaly console to go along with a dinosaur red DualShock 4. This will be made available in limited quantities starting on December 7. No word on whether this special edition PS4 Pro will make its way to North America.
