Rather than focusing on ferocious beasts, this trailer for Monster Hunter: World is instead centered around Palicos. These furry feline companions make a return, and this time they can be fully customized.

In the trailer below, we see that we can modify the color of their fur and choose their tiny clothes. Even small details like eye size, patterns, ear shapes, and voice can be adjusted to your liking. Palicos are trusty companions during your journeys, and can help you out if you're stuck in a difficult battle. Outside of aiding you in your journeys, they can also cook you up delicious meals. For example, in the trailer we see a Palico who happens to be an expert chef. 

Monster Hunter: World releases January 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It's also releasing for PC, but a release date has not yet been confirmed. If you want to get your hands on the game sooner, a second beta on PS4 is coming as of December 22.
