Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will have a collector’s edition set in the U.S. too ⊟
It seems like nearly every retail game of any significance gets one of these fancy bundles nowadays. This one doesn’t seem as packed with junk as Japan’s LE that came with four figures and a plush, but that one was priced at $90+.
The $59.99 set includes a translucent Gore Magala figure, a pin of a Felyne wearing Gore Magala armor, a Monster Icon lanyard, a cleaning cloth, a copy of the game, and a supply item box to hold them all. It doesn’t look like the bundle is on Amazon yet, but standard $39.99 copies are available to preorder for their early 2015 release.

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.

Monster Hunter 4 Felyne Tank RC ⊟

Wow, this looks fun! Capcom and Kyosho are releasing a remote-controlled toy Felyne Tank (as seen in Monster Hunter 4) this fall, for 12,800 yen ($125). It shoots a missile!

This was shown off at the Tokyo Toy Show, and spotted by Hobby Media.

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.

New Monster Hunter 4G trailer ⊟

You, too, will be able to hunt huge dinosaur/crab-like monsters in the desert — and get your shit wrecked — when this hits the West in early 2015. Japan gets the 3DS game this fall.

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 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 4 X Gaist Crusher ⊟

Capcom is crossing over its Monhun-for-kids franchise Gaist Crusher with actual Monhun, in the form of this totally sweet Gaist-ized version of Rathalos, called “Hunter Gaireus.”

Makes me wonder what a Treasure-developed Monhun game would be like. The big boss battles would make sense, but the pacing would have to change dramatically.
