The new additions and simplified mechanics couple well with the buttery smooth combat, making the game accessible and enjoyable to both new and returning players. By breaking the traditional Monster Hunter mold, World successfully thrusts the global status of the series from beyond the niche and into the mainstream.

20 years later, Trio of Towns fits nicely into the mold that the series has made for itself. Failure to break out of it in the next entry, though, could be a great misstep for this farming franchise.
