Monster Hunter 4 Lets You Bring Capcom Mascot Instead Of Felyne

By Eugene . September 16, 2013 . 3:05pm

Bored with Felynes for some reason? Capcom has you covered with its latest collaboration crossover for Monster Hunter 4. Players who pick up Capbon—Capcom’s official magazine—on September 24 will find a code for a downloadable quest.


Complete that, and the rewards are synthesis materials to create Capbon gear for Felynes that will transform them into… Capbon, the Capcom magazine’s mascot.


Capbon is a green salamander/dragon who runs around holding on to its namesake book, and not a peninsula of Tunisia. Because everyone needs a totally out-of-place-but-oh-so-cute mascot fighting alongside them in Monster Hunter 4, which launched September 14th.

    When I read “Mascot”, I thought of Mega Man. Then again, I can imagine him hunting monsters with you. That would be awesome.

    • Pockystix

      that’d would be too awesome

      we’d be lucky enough to get fat megaman as an armor set = _ =

    • d19xx

      Me too. Then again they’ll have to cancel this game if Megaman was on it….

    • hazelnut1112

      Knowing Capcom, Megaman wouldn’t do anything. He would stand still and be only used as bait.

  • ronin4life

    I take it someone will post the code online, right?

  • JustThisOne

    Err… Cute’s a strong word. But that’s just my opinion. I’m sure it’s cute by someone’s standards. :>

    • AuraGuyChris

      It’s fugly.

      • JustThisOne

        I didn’t want to say it. xD Just in case someone happened to think it was cute.

      • SlickRoach

        But fugly in a cute way, like a Snubull. And for some reason he reminds me of Globox from Rayman mixed with a Chao from Sonic Adventure.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Capcom must like Rayman cuz it looks like Globox

  • biskmater

    I don’t know… he doesn’t look like the most reliable guy to have around in a hunt, even the shakalakas managed to look more competent.

  • d19xx

    I thought Ono was their mascot….

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I thought Megaman was the mascot

  • Niermyico

    He looks the chao from Sonic, and the Pupus from FF.

  • laurenhiya21

    Hm.. I guess someone might think it’s cute but I certainly don’t >< Definitely prefer the Felynes…

  • Flynn Scifo

    Monster Hunter 4 already sold 2 Million of copies!

  • Kai2591

    I’ll stick to my cats :)

  • Rei

    The first Capcom mascot was CAPtain COMmando. Funny no one has mentioned this yet.

    …what the hell is that thing
