Announced during Japan’s recently concluded Monster Hunter Direct Presentation, Capcom and Nintendo announced that players will be able to outfit themselves with the equipment of the one and only (not really) Hero of Hyrule in the upcoming Monster Hunter 4 for the 3DS.
The iconic green tunic, as well as the Master Sword and a Hylian Shield will be equippable by blademasters while Link’s bow will be the weapon for gunners. The set will be available via download so let me have a sigh of relief knowing that I wouldn’t need to hunt 100 Ganons just so his rare tescticle component will drop (though that sounds strangely fun).
It was also announced during the presentation that your Felyne companions will have access to Mario and Luigi costumes.
Monster Hunter 4 will be released in Japan on September 14. No announcement of a western release yet, but at this point they better! Or I’m gonna cry.
