Deviljho DLC Release Date, Spring Festival, Mega Man Crossover Announced

Starting March 22 players will begin to find themselves face to face with Deviljho, a fierce beast whose endless stomach has him in search of any monsters or hunters that lie in his path.

As mentioned above, an article from the Japanese publication Famitsu gave us a release date for the Monster Hunter World Deviljho update, with a launch on March 22.

The update will be free for all players.

During the same time period, a new rocket-powered Great Sword weapon, the Wyvern Ignition will also be available, presumably earned through an event quest. The biggest addition included in the update is the new monster Devilijho, which promises to be a real challenge even for those who have mastered the game. Players will also be able to participate in "daily fun activities". The first is for the Wyvern Ignition Great Sword, the victor of the community Weapon Design Contest.

Also during the Spring Blossom Fest, we'll be hosting two very special Event Quests. Now Monster Hunter World fans are in for another crossover surprise with the announcement of the Mega Man Palico Gear, said to be arriving mid-April.

Added "Return to Gathering Hub" (single player) and "Disband & Return to Gathering Hub" (multiplayer) to the options for "Select Return Destination" after a quest has been completed.

April brings with it a whole range of new content to Monster Hunter: World, too.

Also on the topic of weapons, the upcoming March 22 title update will bring to the table a number of tweaks, adjustments and bug fixes to most weapon types. Capcom will share more details closer to the event, but in the meantime, you can take a look at some screenshots of the made over Gathering Hub below.
