Yup, you can play Link dress-up with MH4U in the West too ⊟
So we knew the Japanese version of this 3DS game featured a Nintendo collab to offer Link’s armor set and weapons in Japan, so it’s no surprise that Capcom just announced the same will be true in North America. The publisher also says it has more special equipment announcements coming soon.
So much Monster Hunter 4G crap ⊟
With Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate announced for Japan, here comes an overwhelming monster-sized assortment of tie-in items. Literally tied in (as in attached to the game) is the limited edition, which comes with four figurines and a random plush when purchased from e-Capcom.
There are also way too many accessories, like screen cleaners, SD cards?, stickers, cases, earphones, this treasure chest looking thing… Anyway, go ahead and throw all of your Monster Hunter 4 accessories in the trash, because there are 4G items now. Via Ruliweb.
Monhun, Famicom Remix shirts ⊟
The Famicom/NES Remix shirt is a special King of Games design on sale in Japan.
Monster Hunter: The Guitar ⊟
It’s taken ten years, but ESP has managed to craft an electric guitar out of Rathalos carcasses. The 2.3 million yen ($22502) guitar is… wait, I can’t finish that sentence. A $22,000 guitar? That looks like a monster wing or something?
Anyway, most of the other new MH stuff shown off on Dengeki isn’t quite as expensive.
What the hell is a CYBER Extension Pad Slim ⊟
Actually, I know what it is: it’s a Circle Pad Pro-style device for 3DS XL that puts a second circle pad between the L button and the extra left trigger. It’s designed for Monster Hunter 4. What I don’t know is why that’s a good idea?
What is a good idea is the Micro-USB connector that allows you to charge the device while playing. If you want one of these, it ships at the end of May from Play-Asia, for $33.
A Monster Hunter fan for Monster Hunter fans ⊟
Here’s a USB fan in the shape of a Monster Hunter character wielding a lance – which can be adjusted to whatever angle you prefer. It ships next month from J-List for $52, and now I’ve just about made it through the post without acknowledging how phallic this thing looks.
Three Little Monster Hunters ⊟
I love that this is how Capcom is advertising Monster Hunter 4. Just put some animal masks on, whatever! It’s a really funny ad despite, or maybe because of, its low-budgetness.
Why is Capcom even doing commercials for this game anyway? Is there someone in Japan who doesn’t know about Monster Hunter?
Monster Hunter cat face case ⊟
It’s me! Airou! Airou… from the Monster Hunter! I’m here to hold your 3DS XL!
This great accessory is $22.99 from Play-Asia.

TinyCast 22! After a short break, we’ve returned to talk about Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's reveal, Renegade Kid's Moon Chronicles, and hints for several Level-5 3DS games coming to the West.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate really cheap on eShop ⊟
Worth mentioning with the announcement of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate: both the Wii U and 3DS versions of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate are $20 on their respective eShops.
The sale runs through Feb. 3 at 9am PST in North America; the European eShops will show a (different, unspecified!) discount from Jan. 31 through Feb. 6. If you pick it up now, you can kinda understand Monhun by the time 4 comes out in 2015.

Out of nowhere, Capcom announced today that 3DS-exclusive Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will release to Japan in fall 2014 and Western countries early next year. Yessssss.
As fun as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate was, it’s going to be great to have a 3DS entry for the series with online multiplayer. You can watch a Japanese gameplay trailer for MH4U here.
