To mark the release of Monster Hunter 4, Nintendo is releasing a special Monster Hunter 3DS XL. Yes, again.

The handheld comes in "Rajang Gold." In case you are not familiar with Monster Hunter, Rajang is the monster on the packaging below.

Priced at 18,952 yen (US$186), the bundle will be out March 27, but, as 4Gamer notes, it does not come with the game.

This isn't the first Monster Hunter 3DS hardware: Previously, a trio of 3DS hardware recently hit Japan. I doubt it will be the last!
