Fairy Tail Meets Monster Hunter 4 In Capcom’s Latest Collaboration

By Sato . August 6, 2013 . 3:49pm


Hiro Mashima is best known for Rave Master and Fairy Tail. The two successful series will have a crossover anime special later this month. Additionally, Mashima worked on Monster Hunter Orage, a Monster Hunter manga, about the adventures of a young Hunter named Shiki, whose goal is to defeat the legendary Myo Galuna.


We got a glimpse at Hiro Mashima’s latest contribution to the Monster Hunter universe with equipment designs for Monster Hunter 4. This week’s Jump magazines share some extra details.


Mashima designed the Zodias armor set, which has his characteristic rune styled markings wrapped around the Hunters. The Dual Swords, called Explosive Flaming Red Edge, will take shape of the Fairy Tail guild crest when it is sheathed, as seen on the image to the right. When the weapon is unsheathed, the right-side is said to have a rainbow-like aura.


Monster Hunter 4 will be available in stores and eShop on September 14th for Nintendo 3DS.

    Oh. I was expecting anew fair tail game.

  • Sango

    I need this game in my life! I’m not much of a FT fan but I like Hiro’s art style. It’d be cool if other manga artist designed some armor sets & weapons too.

  • meh from what i read of orage i wasnt really impressed, but those armors look nifty

    • Slayven19

      Yeah the armors look good.

  • deadMastershiro

    I want this even more now.

  • deadMastershiro

    I want this even more now.

  • Samuel

    They need to make a Naruto Storm style fairy tail game, that would be amazing.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Monster Hunter is my new obsession since MH3U. I really can’t get enough, and I’ve pretty much said that in every SE post about MonHun, so I’m going to end it here…I think. I need 4 in my life, for sure.

    • zeta

      and they say SoulSac, ROdyssey and GodEater will kill MH. have at them!

  • MrJechgo

    And yet, we still are nowehere to get a console fighting game like Naruto Ninja Storm with Fairy Tail…
    Seriously, Fairy tail needs to make the jump to console instead of always sticking to handhelds.

  • J_Joestar

    “Explosive Flaming Red Edge”
    maybe a Fire + Slime Dual Blade?

    • Minos

      One of Natsu’s Ougis is the “Crimson Lotus: Exploding Flame Blade”, I am just guessing but maybe they share kanjis or something.

      • J_Joestar

        forgot about that, anyways, it’s too bad that when the game comes out in English it’ll probably be remodeled into an original weapon anyways like the Tessaiga or Crazy D.

        Here’s hoping they are lazy and only do a re-skin so we still have the FT Guild logo shape!

        • Ferofax

          Too much to hope for. I don’t think Capcom USA (or whoever does the localizing) wants to even think about dealing with any other licenses than their own.

          …they can’t even slap their own Boxart of Brachydios on the NA version of MH3U because of “licensing issues”.

  • Minos

    They should also ask Masami Kurumada while they are at it.

    I am quite sure he can design some impresive sets.

    • fairysun

      Agree !
      The Gold cloth !!

  • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

    I change mind! I’m getting this game when it comes over.

  • J_Joestar
  • Vash bane

    I don’t know much about fairy tale but those look cool

    I guess when that special airs i’ll ….anime special? like the manga?
    (btw who are those two in the image?)

  • God damn it! Even if we get MH4 in English, what’s the chance we’ll get the Fairy Tail weapon and armour? -_-
