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?

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 022 - Wright 123 Ultimate
Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast
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.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate hits U.S. 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.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (3DS) for $19.99 ⊟
Not a bad Amazon deal! With the money you save, you can buy a hunting guide over at Culty. The guys up in sales are also strongly urging me to mention that you can get free two-day shipping on the game by signing up for an Amazon Prime trial. [Update: MonHun deal is dead :o( .]

Fire Emblem X Monster Hunter Frontier-G ⊟
The Wii U version of Monster Hunter Frontier-G offers some incentive to check out a second-tier Monhun, in the form of Fire Emblem: Awakening crossover weapons and costumes. Both gunners and swordsmen can wear the Chrom or Lucina armors. Gunners have access to two bows, and sword users can wield a Falchion or Parallel Falchion.
I can only assume that you have to kill and skin a few dozen Chroms to get the armor.
Another Monster Hunter 4 3DS ⊟
Here’s another one of these — these being Monster Hunter bundles, or limited edition handhelds from other countries that will never make it here, or whatever. I ain’t even mad. We’re for sure gonna get the gold Zelda 3DS XL, so it’s all good, right? That announcement is just around the corner, I’m certain of it.. <fidgets>
This system and game bundle comes out in Japan on November 7, priced at ¥19,800 ($200).
Culty’s Monster Hunter Gunner’s Guides available ⊟
I’ve been looking through Culty’s new Monster Hunter Gunner’s Guides, and these things go into great detail about everything you’d need to know about Monhun’s most intimidating weapons. If you’re looking to switch up your armaments, you’re going to want one of these.
The question is just which bundle you’ll want! Either the Bow or Bowgun Edition, with a free wallpaper and a quick reference guide for ammo making, can be purchased for $9. For $18 you get both books, along with audio versions (!) and video tutorials. For $25, you can get all that plus the original Culty Monhun guide.
Real talk, I’m not qualified to review this thing, as I’m beyond novice at Monster Hunter games. But these would be open on my laptop at all times if I were going to try to learn these guns.
PS Vita is really hurting without Monster Hunter ⊟
Here are all the Monster Hunter sales Nintendo snatched away from Sony when it made 3DS the series’ home system, compared to the total in-store sales of every PS Vita game in Japan, according to limited Media Create data compiled by Road.
Monster Hunter 4 sold more than 1.71 million copies in Japan within two days of its release there, and helped push 3DS hardware sales to 298,000 (compared to 78,000 the previous week). That’s almost as many MH4 copies as there are PS Vita systems in the country — the portable’s lifetime sales are at 1.76 million.
Monster Hunter 4 3DS XLs unboxed ⊟
I don’t know why we do this to you. I don’t know why I do this to myself. But if you want to see two special edition 3DS XLs you very likely won’t have access to, here you go.
