Rathalos Head Beckons Monster Hunter Tri Pre-Orderers

image European gamers have one more reason to pre-order Monster Hunter Tri. Reserve the game and you get a Rathalos head figurine as a gift.


Nintendo, not Capcom, is publishing Monster Hunter Tri in Europe in three flavors.


– Vanilla game
Monster Hunter Tri + Classic Controller Pro
– Ultimate Hunter bundle: Black Classic Controller Pro, Wii Speak, game, and Lagiacrus head figurine in a paper treasure chest.


All packages are eligible for the promotion so you can get two head figurines. Collect them all (only if you’re in Europe.)

    *drool* there’s no way I could afford the ultimate bundle but the prospect of getting at least on head figurine is too good to pass up.

    • Apparently it isnt that expensive according to amazon.co.uk. It’s £30.99 for the whole bundle which I say is really cheap considering that retail only is about less than a pound and you get the classic controller (worth £15) and wiispeak (god know how much). Guess i’ll be canceling my God Of War: Collection. Was hoping to spend £17 next month but £13 more wouldn’t hurt that much at the fact that

        Oh yeah, you’re right. Well that one is checked as pre-ordered. What I find interesting is that the ‘game + controller’ bundle costs the same as the big bundle… how does that add up I wonder?

        • who knows. There was lots of games thats like that. Like Alan wake limited edition which was the same price as the normal edition but the price was raised later on. To be honest I’m hoping amazon honor the 30.99 preorder price.

  • Do they get an awesome box like Japan did?

  • badmoogle

    If they don’t announce a free-online service for Europe soon,then i will cancel my pre-order and they can keep their figurines.

    *gasps* Rathalos Head!? Do want! …Wuh? Europe only? My dreams have been dashed… T___T

  • c’mon Nintendo of America….Monster Hunter Tri Pez Dispensers!!!!!!

  • Apparently, a lot of companies have been generous to Europe (at least this generation), because, in previous generations, Europe gets shafted.

      Us Canadians still seem to get shafted. >__>

      US Dollar is down, yet we still pay more and we never get any of those free download-able pokemon over here. It is so unfair. *curses being shafted!*
