Monster Hunter: World is headed to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in the West but Japan is getting it only on the PS4. In an interview with 4Gamer, series producer Ryozo Tsujimoto shared an update on the Japanese PC version.
4Gamer: The PC version release date is still undecided. When it releases overseas will it be possible to purchase in Japan?
Ryozo Tsujimoto, Producer: “In regard to that and the PC release altogether, it still remains undecided. We’re first prioritizing on fully completing the console version, and from there we’ll be deciding on many parts.”
Kaname Fujioka, Director: “Starting with the server environment, there’s a lot that requires reevaluating, and that will have to be after we complete the console version.”
Keep in mind that Capcom also has the long-running MORPG Monster Hunter Frontier that has been available on PC in Japan for over a decade now, so the company has that to consider while thinking about plans to release Monster Hunter: World on PC in Japan.
In a separate interview, producer Tsujimoto said that Monster Hunter: World will add new monsters via free updates. Read more on that here.
Monster Hunter: World releases on January 26, 2018 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC version will arrive later. Its PS Plus beta is currently live for one more day, and you can learn more about it in our previous report.
