Capcom doesn’t hate Europe as much as assumed
Contrary to previous assumptions it seems that Capcom does not despise Europe quite as much as suspect. Quite the contrary in fact. You remember the Ultimate hunters box? Then you will also remember that along with it comes a small statue of Lagiacrus. Also if you are one of the players who actually preordered the game online, chances are high that you will get an additional Rathalos statue.
Now there have been circulating pics of a set including the (quite decent looking) statues of heads of three monsters, the first two being Lagiacrus and Rathalos, the third: Qurupeco. Nobody really knew where to get one of those and it was assumed that it would only be available in Japan. Funny thing, it turns out that the statues will only be offered in Europe. You can get Qurupeco by simply entering a code that comes along with the game on Nintendos (or was it Capcoms?) website. I couldn’t find out yet if you need to buy any special edition or if it’s enough to just buy the game in order to get the statue, but I’ll be sure to let you know as soon as I find out.
