Monster Hunter’s Rathalos Is Flying Into Another Capcom Game

Since it’s more than a Nintendo 3DS game, Gaist Crusher is a big deal for Capcom. How is Capcom gong to promote their new I.P.? By tying it to established ones. We already saw a surprising collaboration with Sengoku Basara 4, which is a fairly popular series in Japan.


Gaist Crusher is also getting the monster of all potential collaborations, a crossover with Monster Hunter 4. Players will be able to fight a special Gaist based on Rathalos, the fire breathing wyvern from the Monster Hunter series.



Hunter Gairathalos looks like it has its Monster Hunter attack pattern of breathing fire and swooping in on unsuspecting hunters… or in this game Gaist Crushers. Gaist Crusher is slated for release on December 3 for Nintendo 3DS.

    Oh joy. Now the young’uns can experience the terror that is the king of the skies as well!

      Kinda wished they had one for the “Lord of the Seas” as well.

  • Crevox

    Big surprise huh

    Looking good. It would have been weird if the other game which felt like Monster Hunter esque (E.X. Troopers: ) got a cameo from MH while Gaist Crusher didn’t.

    We still have over a month till the game releases, so I hope we get another nod announced like Megaman.

  • …wow. That actually looks pretty cool. I’m not sure if this will make any difference to Gaist Crusher’s chances of doing well/badly this fall, but it doesn’t hurt.

    I applaud Capcom for trying to promote new IP. I’ll keep an eye on the game.
