You Can Make Your Own Felyne Friend In Monster Hunter 4

By Spencer . January 8, 2013 . 2:58pm

image Monster Hunter 4 lets players take two Felyne companions with them. One of these is your main Felyne, which you can customize.


Famitsu explains players will be able to select things like eyes, ears, and fur for your number one Felyne. You can also bring a sub Felyne friend with you for quests and the second Felyne changes what union attack you do. Felynes can cling to enemies to hold them in place or knock them out of the air.


Famitsu also introduced a few monsters the fire-breathing female Rathian, Gendrome, and Congalala.


Monster Hunter 4 is slated for release this summer on Nintendo 3DS.

  • Akane Zuliani

    Make it a catgirl and I’m sold.

  • Bob Stockalockapoulos

    I am allergic to cats, so this is a nice substitution.

  • shuyai

  • ronin4life

    Man the wait for this will be unbearable… >อต<;;
    Sure, I'll finally get to play monhun 3U with my bro to tide me over, but this still feels ages away…

  • Neat. P3rds Felyne customization felt pretty crappy. It was just randomized color pallets…at least from what I remember,

  • konsama

    reoihgwiobhrewboibhiobh CONGALALA IS BACK!!!11!

    The new felyne customization sounds so fun, at least even if they still suck they’ll be your own sucker. xD

  • Minos

    Jojojo…I am gonna make it blue and use the Hiro Mashima Armor.

  • Kristoffer Brandberg

    Wait. Congalala? The tailed gorilla with pink fur and hippo-like head? Making a comeback? Holy shit…

    Customizing Felyne? Sweet! =D

  • Zal_Yagun

    Seems like they are taking alot of cues from Dragon’s Dogma, but that’s also a capcom IP so they are allowed to rip themselves off.

    now Dragon’s Dogma need to take MH’s Monster variety and Crafting system…

    • J_Joestar

      The lack of monster variety was the most disappointing thing in DD.
      It still felt like a Pseudo-Monster Hunter though.

  • Visa Vang

    Can I make a loli cat girl?

    • tubers

      That’s for MH V

  • Nickie

    Dragon’s Dogma style? Sold! This needs localized and on the topic as well.. *coughDragonsDogma2cough*

  • Anna Scruton

    I love Felynes <3

  • Pockystix

  • Hinataharem

    Ah no not Congalala

  • gamefreak86

    Hope the west buys 3u 3ds and Wii u version cuz I want MH4 in at least 2 years.

  • Tails the Foxhound

    I hope you can repick some features after the initial choices, it’d be a shame to get some Felyne armor that doesn’t match your cat’s coat.
