Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate was updated with its third round of DLC, though that’s not the only thing that’s new. Capcom has prepared two new items packs as well. “MH4U Support Pack” and “MH4U Advanced Pack” are both free of charge.

Head past the break to find out what’s in both packs, and for instructions about how to obtain them.

The free DLC pack for May is here! On the first Friday of every month since its release, Capcom has been delivering fun and awesome DLC for Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. This time, the DLC brings you Street Fighter, Mega Man and Metroid gear as well as the High Rank Universal Studios Japan equipment, new Challenge Quests, a bonus Palico and tons of other exclusives. Check out the video below to see some of the stuff you’ll get in the new free update!

Capcom is supporting Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate with free DLC each month. We’ve seen things like new quests, items, and more. DLC launches during the first Friday of every month, so another round of new content is expected on May 1.


This week’s GameStop ad may reveal some of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate’s May DLC. Pictures showing Palico equipment based on Mega Man and Blanka are in the circular, along with armor featuring Samus’ Varia Suit.

All of these collaboration items were announced in the past – it’s just a matter of when they’ll be available. Capcom previously released a Link-based equipment set, plus Super Mario Bros. and Sonic-based Palico equipment.

May 1 is just on the horizon, so it shouldn’t be long before we find out if this rumor holds any weight.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.
