Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Counts Mega Man as Equippable Character

Capcom have currently scheduled Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for release in the United States sometime in 2015, though that hasn't kept the company from capitalizing on Mega Man's popularity with a special treat for fans waiting patiently.

In-game, players will be able to equip their Palico character with Mega Man armor, thereby transferring the hero's powers into Monster Hunter's universe. Palico will also be able to equip a Rush-inspired Hammer for direct melee combat.

Capcom says that hunting season opens in early 2015 exclusively on Nintendo 3DS, so stick with GameRevolution for more coverage as we near release.
