Digital pre-order and bonus themes

Starting today, players can pre-order the digital version of Monster Hunter X on the Japanese Nintendo eShop. In doing so, they will be able to start playing on November 28th at midnight, by pre-loading it. Of course, they will need to download some data at midnight for the game to be unlocked, by launching it while being connected to the internet.

Pre-ordering the game (digital version or retail) will net players two Nintendo 3DS Themes. When pre-ordering, they will get a special code to enter on the Monster Hunter Fan Club website, in order to get the download code for the two themes. The code has to be redeemed before December 25th, and the Nintendo 3DS themes have to be redeemed before May 31st. The themes will be available for purchase/download from November 28th.

TV Commercials

To promote Monster Hunter X, Capcom has prepared a lot of Web and TV commercials for it, which will begin airing across Japan on Saturday (November 14th). They introduce the main elements of the game, such as the four main monsters, the various Hunting Styles and Weapons, and more.

They feature:

  • Daigo
  • Matsuoka Mayu
  • Satoshi Inoue
  • Sometani Shouta
  • Takei Sou

Since there’s a lot of commercials, we put them all in a single play list on YouTube, so we don’t crash your browser with over 10 YouTube embeds on the same page!
