The upcoming Monster Hunter Generations has some rather neat collaborations confirmed for the West in the form of armour and weapons that will arrive as free DLC. On the cards are Fire Emblem, Okami and Ghosts 'n Goblins tie-ins, cited as Western exclusives by Capcom.

It's now announced the fourth and final multi-franchise crossover - Monster Hunter Generations x Strider.

It'll consist of 'Strider Hiryu's Cypher sword' and armour, and in order to mimic the fast sword attacks of Strider the weapon will be in a 'dual blade' setup. Of course, the Cypher sword is just one weapon, so oddly the hunter will execute the other blade's attacks bare-handed.

It looks rather cool, in any case. That does nicely wrap-up four quirky cross-over sets of armour / weapons, though that does suggest we'll have to live without the 7-eleven store distributions that we saw in Japan with Monster Hunter X (Cross), which included Toon Link and Star Fox. You win some, you lose some.

Are you excited about Monster Hunter Generations and these collaborations?
