Who Says Monster Hunters Can’t Be Fashionable?

By Eugene . February 18, 2014 . 2:30pm

Monster Hunter Frontier G’s regular Tonfa-like “Senryuu Kon” weapons have nothing on the bling-bling of these gold Senryuu Kons. In order to get your fists around these, though, you’ll need to pick up the new “Premium Package” boxed set being released to celebrate Monster Hunter Frontier GG (Pronounced “Double G” rather than “GG”) in Japan.

 

The box art looks suitably spiffy, featuring a soldier all ready to get into the thick of things while wielding electric, sparkly tonfas.

 

The package will retail for 5,800 yen (US$58) and come with a host of extras to make it worth the while. Check some of them out below, starting with gold and silver matching sets of the Senryuu Kon.

 

Guenbishando the Gold:

 

Feiarubishuna the Silver:

The red Great Sword Raoutodia:

 

And Blue Great Sword Ruperusudia

 

There are also a set of Heavy Bowgun weaponry carbines in either red or blue (Are we beginning to see a pattern here?). Both of these are pictured below.

 

 

 

Moving on, we have the Onaburu Series Armor, which comes in not one, not two, but FOUR different colors to swear your soldierly allegiance with.

And finally, there was also another teaser set for the latest version of the Lava G Armor set as well as another Senryuu Kon weapon, the Midogaron. Check these out below.

Monster Hunter Frontier GG’s big update will land April 23rd. The game will also come to the Vita some time this year.

    pretty freaking cool :D thoe it could do with a better helm realy

  • ShinTekk

    The tonfas look great! I welcome new weapons to MH only if I GET TO PLAY WITH IT AS WELL. The monster in the background looks like a Tigrex. My guess is that it’s an Unknown Tigrex like the Unknown (Black Flying Wyvern) aka Black Rathian :P

    Feiarubishuna is beautiful D:

    Mmm that red greatsword. Gimme.

  • Magicks

    Those weapons and armor look pretty nice.

    Also, no one says fashionable anymore. The hip people say FASHIONABLLUUUHHHH! (Sorry, I just have to.)

    • Strawberry Starlet

      Sorry, what was that? I couldn’t hear over “Love in the Crossfire” blaring in the background…

  • nonscpo

    Im glad that there will be an option for those who want it but Im a little concerned on it being a subscription based game

    I doesn’t really seem for “MH” with the design.. only when I noticed they slapped a “dino” on the background :P

  • Namuro

    That’s a really great artwork there! But I’m more interested in the thing in the background, though. Is that supposed to be an unknown-type Tigrex? I really want to see it in action!

    Hasn’t Monster Hunters always had a large fashion-side to it?
    I know i’ve probably spent more time thinking about what i wear in-game than what i normally wear in my day to day life!

      Yeah the games after MH1 are pretty much all about fashion. It shouldn’t be the case, but it’s the sad truth. They just kinda design armors and leave it at that. They rarely think about the properties of a design if it were real, so the designers get lost in just designing weird things. It’s mostly fashion, or a better term would be “just for looks” cause even on the “fashion” side of things, the armors are never truly all too fashionable.

      Take Royal Ludroth armor for example. Even though the royal Ludroth is a water based monster, the armor looks like winter gear appropriate for the arctic, even down to its use of mittens instead of gloves. Has absolutely no ice defense though. Impractical design.

      But if capcom honestly cared about monster hunter then they wouldn’t continue to recycle the same assets year after year after year. Hell, with the exclusion of “the ability to swim” in MH3, the series has been running on the same tired game engine since MH1. MH4 added some much needed dynamic animations to the mix in hopes of slightly pushing the engine to something acceptable from a later PS2 era game, but it’s 2014 and they’re still making barely any strives to make it a successful idea at all. The only thing keeping the series alive is how popular it is in Japan, but that probably has more to do with the fact it’s a party game rather than because it’s legit good.
      Cause it isn’t.

        i didn’t really mean it to that extent, just that i like making my character look good, and it is a fun challenge to have a good looking mixed set that also has nice skills.

    Soooo…that’s a new tigrex sub in the background eh?
