Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will launch on Nintendo's new console early next year. It will be an expanded version of the Wii's Monster Hunter Tri. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will also be available on the 3DS handheld system. The game will feature over 200 monster hunting quests, and players can exchange game progress between the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game.
The Wii U console version should support the same co-op features as Monster Hunter Tri; four player online co-op and two player local co-op. The 3DS will support four player local co-op via a wireless connection.
Players can experience the world of Monster Hunter alone or in four player local play using Nintendo 3DS. Finding nearby hunters to adventure on quests with is now even easier via the local Nintendo 3DS search feature. Wii U players will be able to enjoy the hunt with Nintendo 3DS players via a local wireless connection. The touch screen feature of both platforms allows players to quickly access in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games whilst the high quality graphics of Wii U powered by the latest iteration of Capcom's MT Framework deliver a unique and stunning world for players to explore. Gamers that own both a Wii U and Nintendo 3DS can take advantage of the inter compatibility of save data between the two consoles, taking the hunt from the living room wherever they go.
The 3DS will feature a few other handy features unique to mobile gaming:
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate utilizes the functionalities of the Nintendo 3DS system to provide players with a truly intuitive hunting experience. Taking advantage of the portability of Nintendo 3DS, players can exchange their guild card that contains all their hunter's information with other players via StreetPass.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be available in March of next year.
