By going to 7-11 stores across Japan, players can get into special quests to acquire special costumes such as Mario & Luigi as felyne garbs and The Legend of Zelda's Link.
Link's costume will be for the main character and will feature his famous green tunic costume. Equipping a sword and shield will make Link appear with a Master Sword and Hylian Shield while long ranged weapons will make the character appear, still as Link with a bow and arrow
Capcom also touched on the multiplayer aspect of the game wherein they revealed that it will be possible to join other players from the "friends list". It will still be possible to create and find rooms though and players can filter the skill level and difficulty of quests to join.
Monster Hunter 4 will also feature a full chat function, making it possible for players to communicate with other players in the lobby. There will be pre-installed options for the chat, much like Luigi's Mansion where you can say "Thanks" and "Hello".
New functions have also been introduced such as "item sensor", which allows players to find important items and a jump functionality which gives more flexibility in movement and more action packed adventure.
