Monster Hunter 4 content coming to 3DS' Gaist Crusher

Capcom's upcoming action game Gaist Crusher will include crossover content from one of the company's more established franchises, Monster Hunter, the company announced late yesterday.

Gaist Crusher will include a boss battle based on a creature from Monster Hunter 4, which was released for Nintendo 3DS in Japan last month. Capcom will include in its new game a particularly challenging battle with a Gaist based on Rathalos, an iconic fire-breathing wyvern from Monster Hunter. Check out the video above for a look at this new boss in action.

Gaist Crusher, like the Monster Hunter titles, requires players to hunt down and defeat massive fantastical creatures called Gaists. Unlike Capcom's established monster-hunting IP, Gaist Crushers is more geared towards a younger audience. The game will ship with competitive and co-op modes and uses plastic toy figures that can clip on to the 3DS case and function much the same way as Skylanders figures. Capcom plans to make the franchise a multimedia project, with manga, anime and other toys set to launch for the IP later down the line.

Gaist Crusher will launch for 3DS on Dec. 3 in Japan. There is currently no word on an international release.
