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?
That looks pretty cool. Will definitely enjoy when I get the game.
I love Strider!!! Pretty sweet to see some Strider dlc. Can't wait for the game!!!
Doesn't make sense to me why we can't have Toon Link or Star Fox...
Oh well, I'm just glad they're giving us something special.
Does anyone know what else we're missing out on from the JP version?
You know what's better than DLC characters Capcom? A new Strider game for the 3DS.
Seriously, why the hell we can't get a new Strider game already?
Japan had a yugioh! crossover...
Awesome armor and weapon. And, uh, can't we just download the Toon Link and Star Fox stuff over Wi-Fi?
@DarthNocturnal That game has problems running and its not like the PSOne one now is it?
Hopefully they have a thing where you can download jap dlc like mh4u. My buds hosted it for me back in the 4U days.
Ran fine for me. And it seems to be running fine enough to get a "Very Positive" rating on Steam. Games that won't run for most / all users tend to get cast into the Negative abyss. And performance on Xbox One and PS4 was also great, from what I've read.
You asked for a Strider game. I gave you one. A fun one. But you won't dare play it, will you?
Of course not.
I haven't been following the news on these.
Does it mean there won't be any more crossover DLC in the west besides those 4? I mean, what about future releases?
@DarthNocturnal I've beaten it and I still have it on steam. Its the first strider game I've played which is why I'm asking for another one.
I'd like to see Mega Man X (gunner) and Zero (blademaster) myself. I'll keep hoping...
Good to see you have good (double) standards. Good day.
Glad to see this confirmed, I think it will be awesome!
hey strider, me and alucard are gonna have to teach you how to wield a sword buddy, yer gonna cut yer flanges off like that. amateurs these days.
It's quite possible they meen the final exclusive collab for the Western version, and that we'll still get the 7-11 stuff.
As someone who is terrible at Monster Hunter, these don't excite me much as you probably have to earn them like the MH4U ones, aka never get them.
can we have a collaboration of Dead Rising Please?
I don't play Dual Wield, but that looks awkward as hell with the one hand empty in an open palm style.
Watch the language~ Undead
Will DLC for this game be free? Or just this specific one?
