Link-inspired weapons and armor confirmed for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate


Capcom has confirmed, via a post on their blog, that weapons and armor based on Link’s iconic appearance will make their way to Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for the Nintendo 3DS. If you watch the trailer above, you’ll see two hunters dressed as Link, one wielding the master sword and Hylian shield, the other the fully upgraded sacred bow from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The Zelda-inspired equipment seems very true to the original, and I can’t wait to slay some monsters with that master sword.

According to Capcom’s Yuri Araujo, “more special equipment like this [is] planned for the title.” We have to wait to find out what it is, however! Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate hits North America in early 2015. What do you think of the newly confirmed Link gear and/or the game in general? What other “special equipment” is on the way?

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth
