Zelda: Breath Of The Wild DLC Armor Confirmed For Nintendo Switch's Monster Hunter

Call of the wild.


Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate arrives in North America and Europe next month, and just as with the Japanese version, it will feature some exclusive Nintendo-inspired content. Capcom has released a new trailer for the game, confirming it is bringing the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild crossover gear to the West.

The Breath of the Wild armor was first announced last August, shortly before the game was released on Switch in Japan. Players can deck their hunter out with a number of Zelda-inspired items, including Link's signature Champion's Tunic and hood. Hunters can also wield an Ancient Bow, while your Palico companion can be dressed in a Korok costume. You can take a look at the Breath of the Wild gear in the trailer above.

Now Playing: Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate x The Legend of Zelda - Official Trailer

Capcom regularly collaborates with other studios to release crossover gear in the Monster Hunter series. Previous 3DS installments have also featured armor from the Metroid, Fire Emblem, and Star Fox series, while Monster Hunter World players could get outfits from Street Fighter, Devil May Cry, and Horizon Zero Dawn.

Ultimate is an expanded version of Monster Hunter Generations for 3DS. It features a variety of additional content, including two new Hunting Styles (Alchemy and Valor), another Elder Dragon, and a new endgame boss. Players will also be able to embark on "G Rank" quests, which feature even more challenging versions of familiar monsters.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate launches for Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe on August 28. Those who have Monster Hunter Generations for 3DS will be able to carry their data to the Switch title and continue playing with the same hunters.
