Monster Hunter World: Iceborne

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a DLC add-on and sequel to Monster Hunter World, though is large enough to have its own trophy list and Platinum. Players will explore new areas such as the freezing cold Hoarfrost Reach, hunt new monsters as well as variants of older monsters, and build new armor and weapons. Players are also introduced to the Clutch Claw, a new tool which allows players to attach themselves to monsters and perform more damage, as well as the Raider Rides, which are smaller creatures that can be ridden.

A mysterious song heard through the air causes a flock of Legiana to migrate across the sea. After tracking the migrating monsters, the Hunter discovers a new polar subcontinent filled with ice, snow, and monsters never seen before. After setting up a new base of operations, the Hunter sets off to discover the source of the song, as well as the strange seismic activity.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne received positive reviews with an average score of 90%, praised for the large scale of the expansion and its content, as well as its beautiful settings and graphics, and overall fun.

The trophies for Iceborne are similar to those in World, which means the difficulty, time required, and method to getting the Platinum, is basically the same. You’ll be spending the majority of your time completing the story, hunting for crowns, and getting your Master Rank level up to 200. One nice thing about this DLC is that, if you haven’t finished unlocking the trophies on World, doing so will now be easier with Iceborne since you’ll have much stronger armor and weapons.

Like World, expect anywhere between 300-400 hours for the Platinum on Iceborne.

Like in the previous game, your first step is to complete the main story of the game.

As you go through the missions, you’ll soon realize that playing Iceborne feels like starting over, as your armor and weapons from World are not strong enough. This is because everything has been upgraded from High Rank to Master Rank. As a result, it is not a bad idea to farm the first monster you face, the Beotodus, and use it to craft your first full set of MR armor and weapons.

Also, as you progress through the story, you will receive a tutorial-like quest that introduces you to the Clutch Claw, which can be used to send monsters crashing into a wall. This is an invaluable move, for not only does this trick do a lot of damage to the monster and knocks it down, but will always break off a piece of material to be collected. We highly recommend becoming a master of the Clutch Claw. If the tutorial quest isn’t good enough, check out the video under our Links tab.

Once the story is complete, it’s time to explore the Guiding Lands, which is an area that incorporates all the bio-domes from World into one area. You’ll ultimately want to reach Master Rank 100 in order to hunt the Ruiner Nergigante and thereby unlocking your last story-related trophy, while also upgrading the areas in the Guiding Lands.

Once you’ve defeated the Ruiner Nergigante and unlocked the Fate’s Conclusion trophy, it’s time to start mopping-up everything that’s left. This will include reaching Master Rank 200 for the Master Of Masters trophy, maximizing research levels for the Monster Master trophy, and obtaining both miniature and gold crowns for nearly all the monsters for both the True Miniature Crown Collector and True Large Crown Collector trophies.

There are also a number of miscellaneous trophies you may still be missing at this point. Be sure to check out the Iceborne trophy guide links under our Links tab to see what you need and their requirements.

Happy hunting!

Tokyo Game Show 2019 Video Presentation

Our Tokyo Game Show 2019 Video Presentation, featuring such highlights as Final Fantasy VII Remake, promotions for the recently released Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, as well as numerous other titles like Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Persona 5 Royal, and many others. Also, we cover a slew of upcoming Indie games, as well as some cool VR titles and innovative accessories. Check it out!

Tokyo Game Show 2019 Highlights

Just two days after a typhoon ripped through the area, game developers, distributors, gamers, and otaku alike filed into the Makuhari Messe Convention Center just outside of Tokyo, to attend the Tokyo Game Show 2019. While there were slightly fewer companies attending this year, TGS 2019 did see a new record of 2,417 booths (2,338 last year) which means plenty of games to try, and things to see.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

The largest promotional event was Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII Remake, being shown-off at both the Sony PlayStation and Square Enix booth. The original Final Fantasy VII was released on the PlayStation One in 1997, and is arguable one of the most beloved titles in the series. Visitors at the Sony booth could have their picture taken while wielding Cloud Strife’s massive sword.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

The other big title this year was Capcom’s Monster Hunter World: Iceborne expansion, which is actually a game in itself than simply an expansion. While Sony had playable demos of the game, the Capcom booth displayed life-sized monsters. Monster Hunter World: Iceborne was released last week.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

This year, SEGA combined their booth with their subsidiary Atlas, promoting the upcoming Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Persona 5 Royal, both for the PS4, as well as the Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games for the Nintendo Switch. Other titles included the Hatsune Miku: Project Diva MegaMix for the Switch, 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim for the PS4, as well as games in their SEGA Partners division including Granblue Fantasy: Versus, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Shenmue III, and Star Wars Jedi: The Fallen Order.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

Konami continues to make its comeback with such upcoming titles as Contra: Rogue Corps, and Super Bomberman R. Though most of their efforts are being put into the mobile gaming market, with such playable games as Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, Dance Dance Revolution, and Beat Mania II DX.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

Due to the lack of room, this year saw a lot less arcade-targeted VR titles, and more home oriented ones, including the dancing game Space Channel 5, and a meteor shooting game by students at Kobe Denshi College. Also, with over 4 million units sold, Sony is far from giving up on their PlayStation VR, with such playable games as Marvel’s Iron Man VR, Concrete Genie, and a new Hatsune Miku VR game.

One of the cooler VR accessories I saw were the Cybershoes by a Kickstarter group. Resembling beach sandals, you strap them to your feet or shoes, sit in a chair, and simulate walking or running while playing your favorite VR title. Simple but effective.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

With all those extra booths this year, the Indie game area was packed tight with playable titles. Some that I played included Magical Girl’s Chronicle: Magusphere, which combined the cuteness of magical girls with the violence of blowing up tanks and enemies with guns and bazookas. And Liberated by Polish company Walkabout, where you literally play through the panels of a graphic novel. Both games will be out on the PS4 next year.

Tokyo Game Show 2019

Overall, there were no big surprises this year at the Tokyo Game Show 2019, but still had plenty to offer and gave us a peak at what’s to come.
