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.

Never played on Monster Hunter game before, but if there are mariomals in it, its a day one pick up.
DLC? *** that. I'm loving the costumes though.
Those Mario and Luigi costumes are disturbing.....
THE CATS HAVE MUSTACHES!!!!
couldn't care less for mario and zelda game costumes... but i guess nintendo fanboys find this appealing
Mario, Luigi and Link**********
Umm, what. What is this. I don't even-
This is pretty cool, though I do kind of wish that they Nintendo and Capcom collaborated on bringing something else to the game. Either way, I really hope that this game ends up being localized because I really want to buy this after playing MH3U on my Wii U.
What if Mario and Luigi were zombies in a Resident Evil release for Wii U. Hell could even it make it a zombie level in the Peach Kingdom. Nintendo would likely never go for it, but it'd be an awesome crossover if done well.
give me mh4 I want my cats back. cool armor suits though ;)
