Japanese gamers have been able to enjoy Monster Hunter 4 on the Nintendo 3DS for some time now, but that hasn’t stopped Nintendo from partnering with Capcom in order to release a special edition Monster Hunter 4 Nintendo 3DS XL for the region. Featuring a huge splash of gold that’s normally reserved for items in the Legend of Zelda series, this Nintendo 3DS XL looks like a monster has had its way with it.

The design is pretty nice and with confirmation that Monster Hunter 4 will be heading West in 2015, perhaps we’ll see a similar bundle once the game releases here. Do you like this one? The Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate bundle last year was more brown and featured a decal, so for those who like patterns across the entire 3DS XL, perhaps this one is a better fit.

    looks nice
    now hopefully they make a mario kart 8 Wii U bundle to boost wii u sales

    • SmashFinale

      They will probably do that one year after the game launches.

    It looks pretty good, although if where up to me I would take of the Monster hunter 4 text.

    • C4

      I can’t associate the design with Monster Hunter. So probably no wonder they had to add the “Monster Hunter 4”

  • Jealous.

    First one is better in my opinion.

    Regardless of which design makes it over, if a MH4 bundle comes to America, that’s when I finally upgrade to an XL. I’m still a little hesitant, though, since the loss of resolution sharpness from the regular to XL is pretty noticeable.

    I’m entirely too jealous of all the awesome custom 3DSXLs that Japan keep getting exclusively

    Why is there so many strictly Japanese products that have English text in them? I understand much of Japan is multi-lingual and some things are easier to portray in English, but in this case I’m sure both “Monster” and “Hunter” could be represented by Japanese characters.

    A Monster Hunter article not written by Zorpix?

    I don’t think the west will ever see this… 🙁

      It says right in the article it’s confirmed for a Western release in 2015.

      Then again Capcom is super finicky about crap like this.
