Monster Hunter 4 Makes You Macho, Lets You Jump Over Mountains

By Eugene . December 27, 2013 . 3:01pm


Yeah, you’re not seeing things, Capcom is still promoting Monster Hunter 4 across Japan. And they’re doing so with the twist of catering to some of Japan’s special prefectures’ audiences by featuring either the idols, famous characters or locales that 10 of Japan’s prefectures are known for.



Monster Hunter 4, for instance, has been known to put hair on your chest. Nagano certainly believes it, having the game promoted alongside their pro-wrestling Lucha libres.



Shizuoka, on the other hand, gets a “Let’s Jump over Mt Fuji” which features girl band Oranche. There’s a full suite of 10 of these special videos for places such as Kagoshima, Hiroshima and more. You can check them out on Capcom’s YouTube channel.



As reported in the past, Monster Hunter 4 has shipped 4 million copies in Japan alone so far. Capcom are continuing to release free DLC for the game, some of it featuring new costumes and weapons based on popular franchises such as One Piece.

        • sammy11

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    The only game which makes manly man even more manly. GET MONSTER HUNTER 4.^^

    • FlyingPony

      So true, and Monster Hunter is among the hardest game I ever play. But it also one of the rare game where victory, feel so sweet.

  • GriffithOfTheHawk

    Capcom, please localize only a G version of MH4. You don’t have to hurry.

    • 하세요

      That’s gonna be one hella wait. There hasn’t even been a second 4th Gen MH title to fuse together to created 4G. Not to mention the year+ wait after Japan gets it, so you’re looking at, what, 2016-17?

      • Pockystix

        it’s gonna be weird though

        It can’t be Portable 4th, since it’s already on a portable. . . so what do they call it?

        as for the amount of monsters and stuff in it; despite not having a G rank, it’s got almost as much monsters as 3G/3U.

        4G is probably going to be insane.

        • 하세요

          I’m not sure how it’ll be handled either, but I see no purpose in re-releasing MH4 without any new monsters from another game, unless they pull from Frontier.

          • Pockystix

            oh, they will have new monsters, and a butt-load of recolo-. . .eerr, i mean subspecies lol

            and honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way. . . except localized in a timely manner = w =

      • GriffithOfTheHawk

        Not at all, it’s happening :) :
        They could be working on the West version at the same time.

  • konsama

    Meanwhile in the west, the world is desperate for manliness. keke

  • Go2hell66

    If monster hunter puts hair on your chest, then i should be a wookie by now

  • brian

    So does it put hair on chests for girls like in the second video?
