Lately there's been a lot of crossover content appearing in Monster Hunter World. This is thanks, in part, to Capcom making the rounds and signing some agreements to have various characters and costumes appear in the latest Monster Hunter outing. Well, the good folks at The Coalition also want to join in on the fun.
The tweet made its way online through the Twitter account of the head of The Coalition, Rod Fergusson. He joked about talking with the developers of Monster Hunter World about adding a Brumak to the game, with or without the guns.
Technically, this would be a pretty big addition to the game and could even be a really fun hunt for gamers.
Keep in mind that while some people might say that the Brumak wouldn't make for a good boss monster, usually they're an extremely difficult monster to take down in the Gears of War universe even with lots of firepower, weapons, and explosives. It would be doubly hard for the hunters in Monster Hunter World to take down the Brumak with their more primitive weapon loadout. Yes, they do have access to projectile-based weaponry, but it's not the sort of stuff that could easily down a Brumak -- not in the ways the Cogs can in Gears of War.
Fans were definitely on board with Fergusson's suggestion, though. The idea of adding monsters to Monster Hunter from Gears of War was something that many felt would be a great boon to the gameplay of Capcom's team-based hunting sim. A few even suggested other monsters that might fit in slightly better with the overall world lore of Monster Hunter, such as the Corpser, who has a more spider-like design and is large enough to give gamers a hardy fight for their money.
Some gamers were already deciding how they would be spending the resources from a Brumak hide, talking about equipping their character with leather pants, and outfitting them with new gear.
Others were curious if this was a lead-in to some special announcements at this year's E3. It would make sense for Microsoft to tease something like this only to reveal it on stage during the Xbox press conference set to take place next month during the big trade show event.
Everyone else seemed excited about the crossover potential, even though nothing has been set in stone yet.
A crossover with Gears of War isn't even too far fetched given that Capcom has already had Street Fighter material appear in Monster Hunter World, as well as establishing crossover content with Guerrilla Games' Horizon: Zero Dawn. We've also seen crossover content with other Capcom properties, such as Mega Man and the Devil May Cry series.
With the fans definitely behind Fergusson's suggestion, and the Xbox in dire need of exclusive content, I suppose the only hold up now would be Capcom.
