This year's 45th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine is announcing on Wednesday that Capcom's Nintendo 3DS game Monster Hunter 4 is getting a collaboration in Japan with Shinobu Ohtaka's Magi manga and anime adaptation. Specifically, players can equip themselves with Aladdin's staff (seen above), as well as Alibaba's sword Amon (seen below), though it will be available as a broad sword.

In addition, the game will be getting a set of collaboration quests, and players will be able to obtain the title of "Magi" and a Magi-themed guild card.

Kaname Fujioka directed and Ryozo Tsujimoto produced Monster Hunter 4 as they have for previous Monster Hunter games. This game supports up to four players. Manga creator Hiro Mashima (Fairy Tail) already designed original full-body outfits as well as a weapon for the game.

The equivalent of Japan's Monster Hunter 4G version will head west in early 2015 under the title Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.

Other Monster Hunter 4 collaborations include a Super Mario and Legend of Zelda DLC, and a giant spoon weapon from Hiromu Arakawa's Silver Spoon manga.
