Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is bringing plenty of big monsters, weapons, and more to fans of the series with its latest installment, but in addition is also bringing the appearance of The Hero of Time himself to the new game.

Capcom announced during the Monster Hunter panel at San Diego Comic Con 2014 that new weapons, gear, and armor will allow players to dress like Link from The Legend of Zelda, with a new trailer bringing The Hero of Time to life in the Monster Hunter universe.

The trailer includes plenty of clips of the classic green tunic and cap that Link has worn throughout (nearly) all of The Legend of Zelda titles, and some of the equipment available to players such as the Master Sword and Hylian Shield, the Boomerang, a Bow, and more. No specifics were revealed, however, on whether the content will already be in the retail release of the game, or available separately as DLC.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate releases on 3DS in Early 2015 for the US – in the meantime, you can check out the announcement trailer featuring The Legend of Zelda-centric items of the new title below:
