Dress Like Hyrule's Greatest Warrior

Recently Capcom Unity announced that Link’s iconic Master Sword, Hylian Shield, and green tunic, along with other weapons inspired by his adventures, will be available for your monster hunter to wear in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Link’s weapons and armor were previously announced for the Japanese version, but Capcom has now explicitly stated that they will be available for western versions.

The trailer below shows off Link’s equipment in action. In addition to the Master Sword and Hylian Shield, it appears we can except the boomerang, bombs, an over-sized bow, and some kind of bone flute. The Link (or hunter?) in the trailer also seems to be fighting using Link’s classic moves, so the equipment could come with some special moves or animations.

Simogo Reveals New Mobile Story Game The Sailor’s Dream

If you love text in games, then you’re in luck; the studio behind Device 6 and Year Walk want to take you on a tiny dream voyage with their next work, The Sailor’s Dream.
