If you're familiar with Capcom's Bronze Award-winning action-RPG Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, you may already be aware that you don't have to play through it on your lonesome.

If you like, you can collect loot, slay dragons and other monsters, and generally complete quests with your buddies via local wireless multiplayer.

This, of course, is a lot easier said than done. You need a friend with a Nintendo 3DS and a copy of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate before you can even think about joining your buddy on a adventure.

Luckily, it's just become a little easier to recruit a squad of hardened battlers.

You see, if you register Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate with Club Nintendo before 22:59 GMT on June 30th, you'll receive a special recommendation code that you can pass along to your most favourite friend.

If that special friend of your choosing then registers a Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 3DS XL between 23:01 GMT on June 3rd and 22:59 GMT on July 31st, he can - you guessed it - download a copy of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate completely free of charge.

If you're an eager beaver and you've already registered your copy of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, fear not: your recommendation code will be available on the Club Nintendo website from 15:00 GMT on June 4th.

Sound fair? We think so.
