Capcom Enlists Prominent Square Enix Designer for Monster Hunter 4's DLC

Devil May Cry and Animal Crossing gear among the new items in June's free Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate DLC.


The latest batch of free downloadable content for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is now available on 3DS. It includes new Animal Crossing and Devil May Cry-themed items, as well as gear designed by Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts veteran Tetsuya Nomura.

Similar to much of the game-themed DLC items in the past, both the Animal Crossing and Devil May Cry gear comes in the form of armor and weapons for your Palicoes. The DMC gear includes the traditional Dante look, while the Animal Crossing gear lets you dress up your companions like Isabelle and Mr. Resetti.

If you're more interested in something for your character, Capcom has collaborated with Square Enix to allow Tesuya Nomura to design player and Palico gear "specifically for the western version" of MH4U. You can see his creations in the video above and in the images below.

Alongside all of this, there are also new quests, guild card customization options, and a bonus Palico. Here's the full tally of everything included, courtesy of Capcom's blog:

  • 14 new quests
  • 5 new weapons
  • 1 complete armor set
  • 4 Palico weapons
  • 4 Palico armor sets
  • 1 bonus Palico: Pink Pal
  • 3 guild card backgrounds
  • 6 guild card titles

You can download all of this now from the in-game DLC menu, though keep in mind much of this is split up. You'll need to download it all individually, rather than being able to simply download one big pack.

The next set of free DLC will be available on July 3.
