Monster Hunter World has now been trademarked in Europe, alongside the filing which was spotted in North America late last week. This makes the likelihood of a reveal during Sony’s press conference later today all the more likely, though it’s possible the reveal could be planned for Nintendo’s event we suppose.

Word on the grapevine is that some key members of the Japanese games industry have been shipped out to Sony’s presser, which doesn’t always happen, lending more credence to the rumour. All will be cleared up over the coming hours we hope – we’re bracing ourselves for a DmC-esque backlash if this really is a Westernised take on the series, though.
