Mario, Luigi, Link costumes in Monster Hunter 4

Nintendo is continuing its amusing tradition of lending iconic franchises to 3rd party games with Mario, Luigi and Link costumes in Monster Hunter 4, today's Monster Hunter 4 Direct revealed.

The presentation opens with a look at two Felynes in Mario and Luigi costumes playing around with hammers, a scenario that feels like it's from an alternate universe's Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. At around 24:00, a pair of human characters dressed in Link's tunic appear, armed with the Master Sword and what appears to be Zelda's bow from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

The Mario and Luigi costumes will be available for download at 7-Elevens in Japan, Siliconera's translation of the presentation revealed. The Zelda-themed items will also be available via download, but the details regarding those will be revealed at a later date.
