In case you missed the announcement last weekend, or simply allowed it to slip from your mind - the free March DLC for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is now live in Europe and North America. Far from being a small cosmetic set of content, it offers up a whole load of quests at various levels that'll unlock all sorts of outfits, including some particularly enticing Legend of Zelda Link armour and weapons.

The following checklist of what's on offer was posted on the Capcom Unity blog.

  • 14 new quests
  • 11 new weapons
  • 4 complete armor sets (8 if you count Blademaster AND Gunner) plus the 3 Fan Club pieces
  • 2 Palico armor sets
  • 1 Palico weapon
  • 1 Bonus Palico: Calico Red
  • 2 Guild Card backgrounds
  • 1 Guild Card pose
  • 9 Guild Card titles
  • 1000 Caravan Points

Even better, there's a handy video that breaks down the content, in terms of which quests will open up particular goodies.

That's a lot of good stuff, though you'll need to get to high level quests in the Gathering Hall area (online, local or single player) to get hold of the Link content.

Capcom is also kicking off its Monster Hunter Caravan Tour in North America, starting this weekend at PAX East in Boston. There'll be a special themed area with Capcom goodies at the company's booth, and future stops for this tour will be announced in the future.
