Following on from a successful contest previously held for the release of Monster Hunter Tri back in 2009, Capcom has once again asked hunters to show their artistic side and design a weapon for the upcoming Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. The winning designs will be featured in-game, so you can look forward to potentially seeing your creation carve up a mighty Rathian.
To enter, your design must be based off one of the 14 weapon classes available, including both new additions to the series — the Insect Glaive and Charge Blade. You'll need a name and illustration, and can provide an optional description up to 100 words to help contextualize your overall vision.
Two winners will be picked; one from North/South America and one from Europe, so make sure you label those submissions accordingly with your country of origin. There's only one entry allowed per person as well, with a deadline of 9am (Pacific) / 12pm (Eastern) / 5pm (UK) / 6pm (CET) on 5th May.
