Mr. X is your friend in the Monster Hunter: World – Resident Evil crossover

Capcom has a protracted and wealthy historical past of plopping characters into video games that they actually haven’t any enterprise being in. There is a Chocobo mount in Murderer’s Creed: Origins for some cause and Geralt has completed a flip in Monster Hunter: World, and it will get fairly bizarre generally as a result of there’s usually no effort made to mix them in. I suppose it is a bit like Agent 47 in a flamingo swimsuit—the incongruity is a part of the enjoyable.

That weirdness goes to kick up once more in November, when Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield from the Resident Evil sequence flip up in a Monster Hunter: World Iceborne crossover. And so they’ve introduced a buddy who’s historically not a buddy.

Capcom introduced the crossover in the present day with a trailer that begins off wanting comparatively simple, as this stuff goes. Leon and Claire, of their commonplace RE garb, discover themselves surrounded by zombies, however simply as issues are about to finish horribly, the moon rises—and the zombies go monster searching. Then they dance. Then Leon and Claire go monster searching with them. It is an entire factor.

But it surely would not get actually bizarre till later within the video, when Mr. X reveals up. He is not right here to horrifically homicide anybody, surprisingly: He is bought a replica of Raccoon Journal and what seems to be an enormous monster ham, and he is apparently right here to assist out. Leon even saves him from what appears to be like to make certain loss of life at one level. It is a tender, supportive aspect of the good, grey-skinned goon that we have not seen earlier than, and it appears to be like prefer it could possibly be a whole lot of enjoyable, so long as you are not hung up on taking any of it too significantly—and do not thoughts having your notion of the fearsome foe presumably modified endlessly.

That ship could have already sailed, I suppose.

From what we will inform, Mr. X will not be playable however is definitely a reskin of the Handler NPC, a Guild Receptionist in Astera who palms out quests to gamers. That may clarify his persona change: The Monster Hunter Wiki says the Handler is “a cheerful and energetic individual” who “cares deeply in regards to the security of others.” Like I mentioned, the incongruity is a part of the enjoyable.

The unhealthy information is {that a} particular date for Leon and Claire’s (and Mr. X’s) arrival in Monster Hunter: World Iceborne hasn’t been introduced, and that we can’t have the ability to play it instantly anyway, as Iceborne is not coming to PC till January 2020. Whether or not we’ll get to get pleasure from their firm within the sport after that occurs stays to be seen: A Capcom rep mentioned that the announcement is just for the console variations of the sport and that details about PC content material be launched after Iceborne is staying on our platform.
