We recently brought you news about Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, an upcoming Capcom title which will allow Nintendo 3DS and Wii U owners to hunt monsters cooperatively across both systems. The latest adventure in the Monster Hunter series is an expanded version of the Wii's Monster Hunter Tri. Touch screen interfaces of both the 3DS and Wii U will offer easy access to the menus and player inventory.
The most intriguing feature is that players will be able to hunt monsters with their friends no matter which console they're using. Players can connect their 3DS games to the Wii U via a local co-op wireless connection. You can even exchange your save data from your Wii U to your 3DS, enabling you to hunt monsters anywhere you go. We have several new Wii U screenshots that feature four player cooperative play. Yup, players are still adorning themselves with dead monster parts. Wouldn't you?
The Wii U version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate supports four player local and online co-op. The 3DS version supports four player local co-op via wireless connection. The Wii U and 3DS versions can be played cooperatively across both platforms via a local wireless connection. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be available next March.
