Monster Hunter Has Never Had Knights In Shining Armor… Until Now

By Sato . October 23, 2013 . 1:03pm

Capcom recently announced that a new and improved version of their real-life Monster Hunter exhibit at Universal Studios Japan will be coming next year. It turns out, Monster Hunter 4 will also be joining in the fun via a collaboration, as Capcom have revealed a Universal Studios-themed equipment set for Hunters and Felynes.


The “Star Rook” series will come with a set of gear for the Hunters, that comes with a Universal Studios-themed Charge Axe. Felynes will also have their share, with the “Star Cat” series equipment, that gives them a neat top hat and weapon.



Unlike other special items, this set can only be made by gathering materials from exclusive quests. The quest for the Charge Axe and Star Cat gear will run from February 1 until March 22; Star Rook gear from March 23 to May 11; and the limited edition Guild Card (shown above) will be available to download from February 1 until May 11.

    Ooh…how fancy and gallant. :O

  • Damn you, Japan…

    For download… on location?

    Too bad even if we get the game we won’t get those equipments. :/

      I’m pretty sure that they’re giving the quest that gives the materials and not the equipment. If that’s the case you can find a host who has the quest and join in on the farming and eventually get it.

      This is me just guessing though. I just doubt they’re giving away free equipment.

      EDIT: If you’re talking about the localized version then maybe there is no hope for this… Hopefully I’m wrong.

        like what happened with the shingeki no kyoujin costumes in 3U we get the quest but there’s no recon corps costume and the blades was changed with a worse model

    • Pockystix

      they usually give us the equipment under a different name/recolor over here

      just look at the Jump weapons we got in MH3U

      • konsama

        We got less than half of the event weapons reskinned for 3U, and not a single reskinned event armor.

  • Namuro

    Aw yeah! I’m so glad they decided to bring the Universal armour sets to MH4. The Charge Axe looks really gorgeous as well, so golden, so shiny! *drool*

    I sure hope CAPCOM will release some new themed Insect Staffs in the future too.
