There’s plenty of other crossovers in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate – The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario, to name but a couple – but this is definitely one of the coolest looking ones so far. With this and the Sonic Amiibo suit coming to Mario Kart 8, April is set to be filled with bonus┬áSonic content for Nintendo games!

If you own Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, will you be taking on the DLC and equipping your Palicoes with Sonic and Caliburn? What other Sonic crossovers would you like to see? Let us know in the comments!

    1. Yeah I was surprised that Monster Hunter would go for Black Knight DLC. I’m not surprised to see Sonic then again a fan once stated that Black Knight looked like the Sonic characters were cosplaying as Monster Hunter (I got more of a WoW vibe from it but whatever).

  1. I didn’t think the Sonic-thing was cute until it started bouncing around. )^v^) Now I want one.

  2. This turned out way cooler than expected, I was hoping they’d have a Piko Hammer for the palicoe’s blunt weapon.
