Monster Hunter: World is edging closer to its January release dates, and as you'd imagine, PlayStation Japan is starting to kick its marketing machine into gear. This advert stars Japanese actor Takayuki Yamada, who gifts three friends some money to celebrate the New Year.

It's only a short video, but you've got to love Yamada's expressions. Each friend says what they'd like to spend the money on, and to Yamada's annoyance, none of them mention Monster Hunter. Obviously Yamada's desperate for some co-op action. Remember, you can turn on YouTube subtitles to catch what the characters are actually saying.

A good laugh, isn't it? Do you plan on playing World with a few mates? Open your wallet in the comments section below.
