Capcom’s very good Monster Hunter World enlargement Iceborne might effectively have solely been out a month, however already the post-launch content material is a-coming, and its subsequent large occasion arrives within the type of a scrumptious crossover with none aside from Resident Evil.
This may not be Monster Hunter World‘s first crossover rodeo, after all; already, the sport has welcomed within the likes of Satan May Cry, Horizon Zero Daybreak, Avenue Fighter, Last Fantasy, Murderer’s Creed, Mega Man, and The Witcher, for occasions each large and small.
Sadly, it is a bit of onerous to gauge the place on the size of significance the Resident Evil occasion could be, given that each one the data now we have proper now exists within the type of a trailer.
However, oh, what a trailer! It sees our outdated friends Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy stepping out of the Resident Evil 2 remake and into Hoarfrost Attain for some snowily sinister hijinks. There is a temporary tangle with a very offended little bit of wildlife after which it is off to the hub, which sure, now that you just point out it, does bear a passing resemblance to a spooky outdated mansion in the proper gentle.
And from there on out, it is simply pure, pleasant ridiculousness, with undead hunters rising from the bottom, disco dancing zombies, and a cameo from the fearsome Mr. X, who appears to be having a little bit of a break from all that stomping menacingly in ceaseless pursuit for this specific event. Oh, and there is even a quick look from a gleefully wiggly, and franchise applicable, little bit of tofu on a keep on with convey issues to a detailed.
It is nearly definitely not unreasonable to imagine that no less than a few of that is hinting at skins, weapons, and different treats coming to Iceborne as a part of the Resident Evil crossover, however we’ll want to attend for Capcom to share specifics earlier than we all know precisely what’s what.
All of which is to say that Capcom has primed the right sinister deal with for this most spooky of months as Halloween approaches – so I guess wide-brimmed hats off to whoever thought it greatest to convey it to PlayStation four and Xbox One in, uh, November.
