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? Leave your thoughts in a comment below.

    Oh, is that the full upgrade to the bow? Geez, didn’t recognize it…I guess I never fully upgraded my bow! How sad. :/

  3. MikeIsaPoet says:

    Yep that’s the bow lol. I fully upgraded everything in that game…I mean, now that you know you could amend the article to say so 😛

    I wonder if the male and female armor will be the same?

  5. Holly says:

    Pretty sure they’re basically the same. In the trailer, one of the “Links” is male, the other female. And they pretty much look the same.
