[Watch] Monster Hunter: World releases all-new trailer showing off the uncharted Wellspire Waste

This new Monster Hunter World trailer stars the fugliest flamingo beast ever

The latest look at creature slaughter saga Monster Hunter World is supposed to show off the new location, but we can't tear our eyes away from the hideous, naked parrot-thing that appears halfway through. Apparently this abomination is the Kulu-Ya-Ku, one of the enemies you can expect to face in World's dense environments. "The monster called Barroth, the idea for him came from watching the movement of bulldozers on a construction site," Monster Hunter Tri game director Kaname Fujioka told Edge
