Monster Hunter XX launches on the 3DS in Japan this month, and Capcom has just released details on a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild collaboration in the game itself.
The Zelda crossover will run between April 24th and May 31st and will give players the chance to participate in three event quests at 7-Eleven hotspots, entitled The Legend of Zelda: Test of Power, The Legend of Zelda: Test of Courage and The Legend of Zelda: Test of Wisdom. Successfully clearing these quests will give players the materials used to craft the Ancient Bow, Hylia armour, Korok Branch and Korok Palico armour.
During the event, players will also be able to get a Breath of the Wild-themed Guild Card background, as well as special titles. New Palico will also be available from the 7-Eleven hotspots, but they won't be Zelda-themed.
In addition to all this news, Capcom has also released a launch trailer for the game:
Ace Attorney, Okami and Strider collaborations are also planned for Monster Hunter XX, and Japanese recording artist Daigo will be getting in-game content as well. The game arrives at retail on March 18th.
That's certainly a lot of info to digest - what do you make of all this crossover content, and do you think we'll be lucky enough to get this updated version in the west? Share your thoughts with a comment below.
I hope it comes to the west..
More frames than Switch version of BOTW.
Gonna wait for Switch next year.
3DS and Wii U are the best versions it seems.
I hope they skip XX on Switch and go straight to MH5. THAT would bring in the hype. I suspect they've been working on MH5 since 4U came out.
How about Monster Hunter on Switch?
Yeah it would be cool to see some enhanced versions of 3ds games on Switch. They did it with MH3U on WiiU and 3ds. MH Stories, a pokemon game maybe a Mario&Luigi RPG bundle of the ones released on 3ds. The more the merrier and to enhance games that are already created is generally easier than creating from scratch.
I am also waiting for news on Monster Hunter Stories. It is much more appealing to me than the main series. I am hoping for a fall release in North America.
Ok Fun, but i'd like a Monster Hunter on Switch without any zelda intromission
@SLIGEACH_WiiU Have you played the Wii U version? I love it to bits, but it has massive frame drops in lots of places - especially village areas.
Cool. Now put monster hunter on Switch please.
@vforvincent I noticed that as well, the game seems to run well and smoothly on my Wii U for the most part until I reach any villages, then it makes me motion sick from the dip in frame rate...
@Moon I would love it since I hated Cross/Generations.
And probably you're right. Since Generations brings almost nothing new (a few moves with styles but so so), a huge amount of the team should be focused on MH5.
I hope that 7-Elevens in North America eventually become hotspots!!! I live directly next door to one.
Haha this is soo cool, feels like a breath of the wild 3DS, this makes me want to buy a new 3DS again. Sold my old 3DS
Now i want a monster hunter for switch
Would be nice if they port this to Switch.
I cant even stomach looking at 3DS graphics. So happy we finally got a decent handheld in the Switch
Wake me when I hear "Monster Hunter comes to Switch".
@SLIGEACH_WiiU Man don't be so salty... the switch might not be the most powerful console out there but what you're saying is just plain stupid
And people want this series back onto the PS4, where Sony doesn't give a crap about MH. lol
Also, does this mean we can go inside the final boss as if it was a dungeon? lol
It's so weird that BOTW Link can't properly fish in own game.
@Frank90 Why didn't you enjoy Generations? I didn't think it was very good either, but it would be nice to hear your reasoning because everytime I say Gens wasn't very good, I tend to get lots of hate. lol.
The hunter arts ruin the game, (everyone's just constantly jumping up and trying to spam mounts),
Lack of Elder Dragons,
No story mode, and talking to people in towns is way more tedious than it was in 4U.
Oh, and those really boring quests like kill 50 Vespoids, or whatever they're called...
I did like being able to play as Palicoes though... and Generations isn't a bad game per-se, just not good compared to 3U or 4U in my opinion.
As if we didn't want this enough as it is already. Been using Greatsword and Longsword most of the series, but got into the Bow in MH4, and loving it, this outfit would fit so well as an Archer!
@Joeynator3000 why are you using "lol" as punctuation. lol
@Moon Yeah like you I think that the lack o G-Rank really hurts the game, the multiple hubs just make everything confusing and boring, TONS of gathering quests, TONS! Story is no-existent. So comparing I think that we don't like the game by the same reasons. Oh and while I like a feel styles I think that they are a bit half baked, and generic too.
