Monster Hunter X has finally been released in Japan and the game is already setting out to be one of the more successful Nintendo 3DS releases ever, with the retail release going sold-out in several Japanese stores and the digital one breaking several records in just two days of availability. Now that the game is finally out, the team can focus on the development of new content for the game, some of which will be made available in Japan starting tomorrow.
The new Monster Hunter X content launching tomorrow is the Zelda and Mario series collaboration content. By connecting their 3DS online in Seven Eleven stores, players will be able to get a Toon Link armor and a unique The Wind Waker inspired Guild Card as well as an event quest and more Guild Cards based on the Mario series. Some screenshots showcasing the new content have also been shared and you can check them out right below.
A few days ago Monster Hunter X was among the games that Capcom has shown during the latest episode of Capcom TV. Alongside the latest entry of the series, Capcom has also shown the spin-off game Monster Hunter Stories, which will be released next year in Japan on Nintendo 3DS, and Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster, the new version of the Resident Evil game originally released on Nintendo GameCube years back.
Monster Hunter X is now available on Nintendo 3DS in Japan, with a playable demo also available for download on the Japanese eShop. The North American and European release of the game has yet to be confirmed but there’s a good chance we will hear more about the matter next year. Considering how successful Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has been, it would be strange for Capcom to not release Monster Hunter X in the West.
