Accompanying Aloy is an adorable machine Palico. This companion looks like a combination of a Watcher and a Felyne.

While the game will be released on other platforms, only PlayStation 4 gamers can enjoy hunting monsters in Aloy’s shoes.

Aloy is the main character of the hit PlayStation 4 exclusive, Horizon Zero Dawn. Both Monster Hunter: World and Horizon Zero Dawn feature open worlds with gigantic dinosaur-like monsters one can hunt. However, Zero Dawn‘s world revolves around robotic creatures while Monster Hunter’s creatures are flesh and bone.

This is not the first time Capcom tied-in with another company. In 2010, Capcom collaborated with Konami to promote Monster Hunter Portable 3d as well as Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. In Peace Walker, the player can unlock extra missions that involve hunting creatures from Monster Hunter, including a unique monster called Gear REX.

Snake (Metal Gear Solid) faces against a Tigrex (Monster Hunter) in this crossover.
