Just this week Capcom announced that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has passed four million sales globally, with this entry also being the first of the series to sell more than one million copies across Europe and North America. It's been a breakthrough title for the IP, in other words.

To celebrate it's now been confirmed that 3DS owners in Europe will get the "Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Palicoes 4 Ever" HOME Theme for free as long as they download it between 23rd and 30th October. It's been on sale for a while, but is a nice freebie for those that haven't taken the plunge.

Unfortunately this is only in Europe, though hopefully an equivalent promotion will come for North America.

If you're part of the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate clan let us know what you think of its sales landmark, and whether you're in Europe and planning to grab that theme.
