Monster Hunter 4 has been a phenomenal success in Japan, breaking sales records and establishing itself as the highest-selling game in franchise history, as well as one of the highest-selling 3DS games in Japan. Like several of the games before it, Monster Hunter 4 will be receiving an Ultimate version later this year in Japan, and that version will then be released globally next year.
As a nod to Nintendo, Monster Hunter 4 features Zelda equipment like the Master Sword and Hylian Shield. Capcom has now confirmed that these items will be in the Ultimate version, which means Western gamers will be able to unlock them as well. Capcom also teased that there would be more special items, but we'll have to wait until the game launches to find out what they are. You can catch the Link's Equipment Trailer by hitting the jump!
