I’m not sure there’s a video game series I’ve wanted to like more than Capcom’s Monster Hunter. The cult favorite action-RPG franchise sounds like a dream to me on paper: slick swordplay, huge monsters to take down, co-op action and a whole bunch of Capcom fan service.

But since the series mostly exists on the Nintendo 3DS these days, I’ve simply found the controls too clunky — and the visuals too shoddy — for me to get fully engrossed. The upcoming Monster Hunter World, which finally brings the action to PS4, Xbox One and PC next year, looks like it will change all of that for me.

I got a behind-closed-doors demo of the upcoming monster slaying adventure, which was one of the surprise announcements of Sony’s E3 showcase, and I’m officially hungry for more.
