Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Monster Hunter 3
Word from Capcom HQ is that there are some monsters that need to be hunted. And then skinned, deboned, and made into vests and other accoutrement. Fans looking to get back into action will be able to do some from their living room or on the go, as both the 3DS and Wii U versions of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate are now available in stores and through eShop. Owners of Tri looking to upgrade will find 38 new monsters, new stages, thousands of new pieces of equipment, and hundreds of new quests.
A post-launch update has been announced for the Wii U version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Capcom stated that the patch is a result of fan feedback and will add support for cross-region functionality—compatible with North American and European versions of the game—and off-TV direct play for the GamePad.
A demo for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, the upcoming Monster Hunter Tri enhanced re-release, has launched on eShop for 3DS and Wii U. The single-player trial include two full quests—one for beginners, one for intermediate players—12 different weapon options, and both land and sea battles.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will close out this winter pulling double duty when it launches for both the 3DS and Wii U on March 19. Both games will also be available digitally around the same time. For those wanting to give the game a try before release, a playable demo is scheduled to go live for both systems on February 21.
Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be available in March for 3DS and Wii U. Both versions will use touch-screen controls to access books, weapons, maps, and mini-games. The 3DS version will support up to four players through local play, as well as StreetPass for sending guild cards, and Wii U owners will be able to play alongside 3DS players using a local wireless connection. Gamers who own both versions will be able to swap save files between the systems.
