The lights are on
Nintendo held a Japanese Nintendo Direct conference for Monster Hunter 4 this morning where it revealed that fans would be able get Mario, Luigi, and Link costumes and armor for themselves and their Felyne comrades.
Monster Hunter 4 has not yet been confirmed for North America, but it is releasing on September 14 exclusively on 3DS in Japan. Historically there has been a significant gap between Monster Hunter's release in Japan and North America, so hopefully we will hear more about a western release soon.
According to a translation from Siliconera, the Mario and Luigi Felyne costumes will be through Japanese 7-11 stores. The Link armor, shield, and weaponry pack will be available as DLC.

That charge and jump stab with the lance at 15:10 was awesome! I'm excited for the game!
I hope they bring the Zelda armor DLC to MH3U on Wii U.

What this game really needs is a Western release.
The first picture is really creepy. The Link costume looks really great,though!
Needs western release. :)
