Any 3DS owner in Europe can now freely download the Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire “Special Demo”. In the past, it could only be obtained through special means.

Nintendo of Europe wrote on Twitter today:

First of all, let’s just get this out there: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will be available on Friday, February 13th, 2015. Sorry to have kept you waiting so long for this bit of news, but I bet it’s earlier than you were expecting, right? =)

And to help with the wait, we’re pleased to announce that a special demo version of the game is coming soon including:

– Tutorial on basics and weapon controls;
– All 14 weapon classes;
– 3 unique monsters;
– Single player plus Local and Online Multiplayer options!


Capcom hasn’t released a demo for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on the eShop, but some 3DS owners are managing to get access. We’re hearing that the demo was distributed at a Nintendo of Europe headquarters event today. There will apparently be another event in Paris soon as well.

Monsters in the demo include Great Jaggi, Tetsucabra, and Gore Magala. Online play is not yet functional.


Thanks to Jake for the tip.

Nintendo has released the “Special Demo” for Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire on the 3DS eShop. As far as I can tell, it’s the same download as the one fans could obtain by using certain codes. The demo is now widely available to all!
