Monster Hunter 4 Will Have Mario And Luigi Costumes

By Sato . September 8, 2013 . 4:07am

In this morning’s Monster Hunter 4 Direct presentation, Nintendo and Capcom shared the latest details on what’s likely to be the last Monster Hunter 4-themed Nintendo Direct prior to the game’s release in less than a week. The live stream started with a look at a couple Felynes, fully decked out in Mario and Luigi gear.


Capcom and Nintendo were brainstorming on a way to throw in Mario and Luigi into the world of Monster Hunter, and decided that it would be best to include them as Felyne costumes. Players will be able to acquire the Mario Brothers costumes at 7-11 stores across Japan.


Additionally, Capcom also showed a Congalala growing after eating what appeared to be a Super Mushroom.


Monster Hunter 4 will be coming out on September 14 for Nintendo 3DS.

    Looks kinda creepy to be honest.. :P

    Man I really don’t like store-exclusive promotions. Especially when it’s impossible for imports..

    • kuroneko0509

      If I’m not mistaken, it will be available as downloadable quest from internet later

  • Miss_Madness

    Honestly I think everyone should be worried about the fact that monsters can eat the power up mushrooms. Because when I want to fight a monster I’ll certainly enjoy the thought of it getting two times bigger. :|

    • Link

      Goes in ready to fight Raviente. Raviente eats Super Mushroom. “Screw this im going back to Rathalos.”

    • 하세요

      I’m assuming that these outfits will, as usual, be obtained as a quest reward. The fight probably will involve a Congalala in reference to Donkey Kong, possibly being twice the standard size.

    • Tom_Phoenix

      Honestly, I would LOVE to see that. XD

    • ZEROthefirst

      Can you imagine if they made a World Eater Savage Jho for G rank… and then he gets a power up mushroom to grow even more? Now that would be scary and annoying <.<

  • Pockystix

    . . . so, no Pokemonster Hunter? o n o

    • 하세요

      Were people seriously expecting that?

      • Pockystix

        should’ve expected Elizabeth to not catch my sarcasm lol

        • 하세요

          It’s different when one person says it opposed to a good chunk of forums actually asking for it.

          • Pockystix

            and apparently getting a lot of hate for it, yeesh

            some people are kinda scary bad at takin a joke o _O

  • This is Capcom’ side of the game. The Nintendo side will probably have Mario and Luigi dressed up as Ryu and Ken complete with the Shoto moves to give Bowser a Shoryuken of his Koopa life.

  • Go2hell66

    wackiest crossover since SMTxFE

    never would have seen this coming

  • Masa

    Ewww. Would rather not see anything Mario in MH games.

    • Aaron K Stone

      Then don’t use the costumes simple.

  • Namuro

    So…this pretty much confirms that MH4 will stay as Nintendo exclusive?

    Anyway, I love what they threw in there as a bonus for Nintendo fans. With the inclusion of Link’s costume, I couldn’t help but think that it’d be great if CAPCOM could do a special DLC quest with a Bulldrome with Ganon’s colour scheme. LOL

    Man, it’s been such a long wait, but it’s finally here! I’ll be seeing y’all hunters soon!

    P.S. I thought Link threw his shield at 24:43. LOL

    • British_Otaku

      It confirms that if MH4 goes to another system (port or upgraded version), that some content will have been changed or cut for non-Nintendo platforms on top of losing the joint dual screen interface and whatever Streetpass ideas they had.

      It’s hardly like Nintendo own Capcom and the Monster Hunter franchise. I wouldn’t mind seeing that a Bulldrome with Ganon’s colour scheme as well though.

    • Eder García

      MH Frontier was a 360 exclusive until this year when capcom announced a PS3/WiiU port.

  • Ban The Jackass

    NOOOOOOOO. It was supposed to be English localization release date, some really cool armor/weapon Mario/Pokemon based or something mind blowinggggg! #sobbing hysterically

    • InfectedAI

      Why would they announce an American release in a Japanese Nintendo Direct?

      • Ban The Jackass

        But not a little hint? But yea, it was quite stupid of me to not consider that. Was getting a little desperate there T_T

  • LonelyGamer

    I know, put Bowser as a new elder dragon and let him be the flagship monster for Monster Hunter 4 G

  • pig looks like its being devoured by a weird looking frog

  • Dylan Anantha

    >Congalala grows after eating a Super Mushroom
    >Suddenly imagine a Rathian, Tigrex or Fatalis eating a Super Mushroom

    Something tells me this is going to end with my Hunter torn limb from limb.

    • InfectedAI

      Of course not. The enemy will get big enough to swallow him whole.

  • OMG! LOL! I can’t stop laughing at that second picture. A big nose and a mustache does NOT look good on a cat.
