Samus and Zero Suit Samus costumes in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

We're Tallon you the truth.

Metroid heroine Samus Aran will feature in 3DS role-player Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.

Character costumes for both Samus and Zero Suit Samus will be unlockable in the game, Nintendo has announced, alongside a number of Metroid-themed weapons.

There's no word yet on exactly how you'll get access to content, although the official Capcom Unity blog has confirmed it for western audiences.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is due to be released this weekend in Japan and early next year in Europe and North America.
