Monster Hunter World Spring Blossom And Mega Man Armor Events Coming In April
A few special events are coming to Monster Hunter World soon.
A lot of new content is on the way soon to Monster Hunter World. In addition to the game's first big update next week, which adds the returning monster Deviljho and makes an assortment of balance changes to almost every weapon type, players have a few new events to look forward to in the near future.
Early next month, Capcom will kick off the Spring Blossom Fest, the first seasonal event in Monster Hunter World. The festival begins on April 5 at 5 PM PT / 8 PM ET (12 AM GMT on April 6) and runs until the same time on April 19.
During the Spring Blossom Fest, the Gathering Hub will be decked out with flowers and other springtime decorations. Players will also be able to participate in "daily fun activities." 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.
Capcom will also hold two new Event Quests during the Spring Blossom Festival. The first is for the Wyvern Ignition Great Sword, the winner of the community Weapon Design Contest. The event coincides with the start of the Spring Blossom Fest on April 6. You can take a look at the concept art and in-game render of the sword below.
Following shortly after the Wyvern Ignition Great Sword, players will be able to take on an Event Quest for the retro Mega Man armor. Capcom hasn't shared any details yet about what the quest will entail, but it will be available from April 13-27 and reward players with tickets to craft the voxel-style gear for their Palico; when equipped, it will play different classic Mega Man tunes depending on what weapon you're using. You can take another look at it in the video above.
Capcom is rolling out the first big update for Monster Hunter World on March 22. The publisher also recently announced a set of Devil May Cry-inspired armor and weapons, although there's currently no word on when its corresponding Event Quest will be available in the game. Until then, players have one last chance to get the Horizon Zero Dawn gear and the stylish Shadow Shades α sunglasses.
