Capcom’s Monster Hunter: World will launch soon, so the developer decided to do something special to get the people talking. They've transformed London’s Flat Iron Square into a Monster Hunter Meat Shack that'll offer free food and beverages until 28 January.

Happy New Year carnivores. Monster Hunter: World is set to launch for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 26 January, but not without throwing a giant barbecue first. London’s Flat Iron Square recently underwent an extreme makeover into a monster dining experience.

Capcom’s Monster Hunter Meat Shack will offer up "a plethora of outrageously sized mouth-watering BBQ dishes" in order to get people excited about their upcoming game. Everyone knows that the way to a gamer's heart is through his/her stomach as we pretty much devour all sorts of junk food just so we can go back to playing our game. Nice move Capcom, nice move.

Our colleague has had a chance to take a crack at the game's beta recently, and instead of performing an action move using "an unfeasibly large sword", his character sat down for a meal. This way, he was treated to an entire animation of an in-game person setting up a spit-roast. Maybe we should leave the barbecue business in the real world.

The Monster Hunter Meat Shack will be open to the public starting 25 January. The shack will offer a big barbecue as well as a hands on demo of the Monster Hunter: World. The experience at London’s Flat Iron Square will be free and open to anyone over the age of 16.
