New armor in the shape of the Drachen Set, plus Dragoon-inspired glaives Kinsects and, yes, even Moogle skins for your Palico, will all be available when the title update goes live in August. The landscape and its diverse inhabitants play a critical role in each quest as players strategically use the surrounding environment including terrain, vegetation and wildlife to their advantage in battle or become hindered by the hazards they present. Joshua Fine, a writer for Starz Ultimate Spider-Man series, is also attached to the project.

Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild will be developed in such a way that it deepens and enriches the lore surrounding the series.

Monster Hunter: Legends of the Guild will be about a warrior who leaves his small town on a quest to take on one of the series' powerful Elder Dragons. We don't know much else beyond that brief summary provided via Capcom at this time, but it should make for an action-packed adventure that "Monster Hunter" fans will enjoy.

The crossover event was first announced at last month's E3.

The Monster Hunter series has been successful in Japan for years, but nothing has come close to the level of success brought by Monster Hunter: World.

Pure Imagination Studios has experience turning licenses into animated shows and films, including LEGO and Marvel. The two will meet on August 1 (at 5PM PT) when Eorzea's influence enters the Monster Hunter World universe.
