Heads up Monster Hunter fans! If you don’t own a Nintendo 3DS or Monster Hunter 4 yet, or if you don’t mind purchasing a new 3DS handheld console, you might be interested to learn that Nintendo has announced a new blue Nintendo 3DS handheld console with a Monster Hunter 4 motif on it. The console will come bundled with a download edition of Monster Hunter 4 and a 4GB SD card and is expected to retail for 19,800 JPY. Unfortunately it looks like this bundle will be limited to just Japan for now, so for fans outside of Japan, well you guys will have to look towards grey market imports if you want to get your hands on it.
Monster Hunter 4 was released by Capcom back in mid-September and managed to move an impressive 1.7 million copies in just two days. Over in Japan it was reported that Capcom managed to sell 3 million copies of the game since its launch, proving that the game has still managed to retain its huge fanbase, a fanbase which we’re guessing will be eager to get their hands on this special edition Nintendo 3DS handheld gaming console. The special edition Monster Hunter 4 Nintendo 3DS is pegged for a release come 7th of November, so for those who would love to own it, you’ll probably want to mark that date down on your calendar.
