You Can Get Breath Of The Wild Gear In Monster Hunter XX

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is so good that you might wonder why every game can't be Breath of the Wild. Well, Capcom seems to be wondering that, too. In a new trailer, the publisher announced that Breath of the Wild will be crossing over with its upcoming Monster Hunter re-release, Monster Hunter XX, in the form of some special items and outfits.


In the video, a Monster Hunter avatar who looks an awful lot like Zelda protagonist Link dons a Hylian outfit and embarks on a journey across Monster Hunter's big, deadly world. The crossover isn't just limited to clothing, either. As in Breath of the Wild (and every other Monster Hunter game), the monster-hunting Link hunts wildlife and cooks food, uncovers the legendary Master Sword, and finds some mischievous Koroks (or, at least, cat-esque Feylnes dressed like Koroks) hiding in the wilderness.

Breath of the Wild isn't the only franchise that's crossing over with Monster Hunter XX, either. In a series of other trailers, Capcom revealed that characters and items from Okami, Capcom's 2014 Strider reboot, and the Japanese television show Garo will all appear in the game. Previously, Capcom unveiled Monster Hunter XX "collaborations" with popular series including Sailor Moon, Fire Emblem, and Ghosts n' Goblins.


And that's just the new stuff. Monster Hunter XX is actually a re-release of the 2015 game Monster Hunter X (or, as its called in the West, Monster Hunter Generations), which contained content based on Star Fox and The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, as well as a number of other games. It looks like all that old crossover content is still around in the re-release, as the Breath of the Wild collaboration trailer shows Breath of Wild's Link teaming up with his counterparts from both Wind Waker and Twilight Princess.

Monster Hunter XX comes out in Japan on March 18, 2017. There's no western release scheduled yet, and while most Zelda fans are probably still busy with Breath of the Wild, hopefully we'll see the newest Monster Hunter at some point—after all, Monster Hunter 4 is one of the best games on the 3DS, and it'd be nice to eventually get access to all this fun extra content.
