At the Sony Tokyo Game show, 2017 press conference Capcom made a few big announcements for monster hunter fans. First, we got to see more gameplay and how the world looks which is fantastic. And then we got to see a release date which for most fans was a shock because the expected date was probably sometime later 2018 but Capcom announced Monster Hunter World will be released worldwide on January 26th, 2018. There was still more to announce such as special editions, pre-order bonuses, and even a monster hunter themed PlayStation 4 Pro.
