TGS 2017: Training Area, New Monsters, and More Detailed in Monster Hunter: World Footage

Tokyo Game Show 2017 may have come and gone, but there's still some bits of news left to unveil for fans eagerly awaiting more information on Monster Hunter: World. During a stage presentation on the last day of TGS 2017, Capcom showed off some more footage of Monster Hunter: World. This time, with an emphasis on a new training area where players can test out weapons on objects scattered around, and the new Coral Highlands area from last week's trailer.

While the focus of the hunt in the Coral Highlands was the bat-looking Paolumu, we were also shown some footage of Legiana (the moth-wing looking wyvern) and Tzitzi-Ya-Ku (the raptor with the earflaps that can light up and stun the player) in-between the presenter searching for the prey of the day.

Capcom is planning to continue hosting hands-on events for the game both across Japan, as well as abroad. Some details were shown about further coverage in Japan (as embedded below), though more information on worldwide events are to come. (Thank you Gaijinhunter for the picture!)
