Devil May Cry’s Dante is joining Monster Hunter: World as its next guest character


Everyone’s favorite famous trash-talking demon-killer is the latest guest character to join Monster Hunter: World. Capcom has confirmed a collaboration that will bring Devil May Cry’s Dante into the fold.

The inclusion of Dante is to celebrate the release of the Devil May Cry HD Collection, which is out today on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Dante will be available to unlock in the game in an Event Quest at a later date which was not announced.

Capcom says that you’ll need to “fight hellish foes in Monster Hunter: World to earn this devious combination of the Force Edge and Alastor,” Dante’s weapons. They translate in Monster Hunter: World to the Charge Blade weapon, but with a catch.

Dante will not have the usual shield that comes with the Charge Blade, as he instead will get the Force Edge that morphs into Alastor. It’s classic Dante stuff, as can be seen in the trailer above.

Dante joins fellow guest characters in Street Fighter’s Ryu and Sakura, and Horizon: Zero Dawn’s Aloy as optional playable skins in Capcom’s best-selling game of all time.
