Monster Hunter: World’s Japanese Commercial Confirms Addition of Elder Dragon Kirin

YouTube user sute aka has shared off-screen footage of a Japanese Monster Hunter: World TV spot, which confirms the addition of Elder Dragon Kirin. In the brief video above, you can catch a glimpse of the monster – who made its first appearance in 2004’s original title – as it uses lightning attacks.

Kirin joins recently announced Elder Dragons Kushala Daora and Teostra, and new monster Dodogama. While Capcom has yet to release more details about Kirin, here’s what the developer said about the other three in a recent press release:

The steel dragon Kushala Daora is a beast with a body covered in metal plates and has the power to keep hunters at bay by generating wind storms around itself. The flame king dragon Teostra is a brutal fiend that spits blazing fire and any hunter who faces this fierce and deadly monster is in danger of being engulfed in a hellish inferno. Dodogama is a rock-eating wyvern that possesses a unique saliva that causes rock to become explosive, a hazardous mix it will spit at its foes to warn off attackers.

Monster Hunter: World releases worldwide on January 26 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC version will release this fall.
