Video: Animal Crossing outfits for Felynes in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

Infendo

Back in July, Capcom confirmed that Link-inspired equipment would be included in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Now the developer has released a trailer showing off “outfits” for the player’s Felyne companions that resemble Isabelle and Resetti from the Animal Crossing series. They even make those distinctive Animal Crossing chattering sounds. How cute!

Felynes are cat-like creatures in Monster Hunter. Some are intelligent and helpful, while others that are found in the wild will steal the player’s items. And some are…companions that go along on quests? That’s how it looks in this trailer, anyway. Admittedly, I’m not that familiar with the Monster Hunter series as a whole (nearing 200 hours in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate just isn’t enough!), so I wasn’t aware Felynes could be travel companions. Regardless, it’s nice to see the Monster Hunter series not taking itself too seriously, as usual.

When Link’s equipment was announced for this game, Capcom hinted there was more “special equipment” on the way. Do you think this counts or is there more to come? Post your thoughts below.

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, Kirby...you 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
