Fairy Tail creator Hiro Mashima is no stranger to Capcom's Monster Hunter series. He was responsible for the Monster Hunter Orage manga, serialized in Kodansha's Shōnen Rival from 2008-2009, and now he has his hand in some designs for the wildly popular series' upcoming Nintendo 3DS entry.
This time around Mashima whipped up some equipment designs for Monster Hunter 4.
Monster Hunter 4 is set to arrive on Nintendo 3DS in Japan this summer. The last time we got a look at footage was when Japanese comedian Satoshi Inoue tried his hand at hunting monsters.
