Monster Hunter World Reveals Final Fantasy XIV’s ‘Behemoth’ Coming Soon (VIDEO)
Back at Square Enix’s E3 2018 presentation, fans were delighted to find out that a crossover between the publisher’s MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV and Capcom’s Monster Hunter World was in the works, and is set to arrive for both titles this summer. While news has still been sparse on the FFXIV side of things, Monster Hunter World has released a new trailer for the upcoming collaboration, which reveals the arrival of legendary Final Fantasy monster Behemoth, as well as other FF-related goodies. Check out the trailer below:
As seen in the trailer above, Behemoth isn’t the only Eorzean denizen coming to Monster Hunter World. A Kulu-Ya-Ku is shown messing around with an aetheryte (teleportation crystal), which makes it grow to an impressive size later in the trailer. A Moogle has managed to make its way to MHW via the aetheryte, and will seemingly assist the Hunters in their attempt to defeat the Behemoth. Additionally, players will gain access to new Palico equipment that will make their small companion look just like a Moogle.
Arguably the most exciting part of this crossover is the fact that players will be able to obtain a full set of “Drachen” Dragoon armor, along with the iconic Gae Bolg relic weapon from FFXIV. Between the new items and the fancy jump animations shown off in the trailer, Final Fantasy fans will have quite the enjoyable time once the collaboration update arrives on August 2nd, 2018.
Monster Hunter World is now available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a PC release scheduled for August 9th.
