Capcom today confirmed that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the Wii U system and Nintendo 3DS will bring the battle to retail stores in North America on March 19, 2013 and across Europe on March 22, 2013. The full game will also be offered for digital purchase on both systems during this launch timeframe and the Wii U game will fully support the voice chat functionality available on that system.  For hunters looking to embark on their journeys sooner, free playable demos on the Wii U system and Nintendo 3DS will be available on February 21.
 
In Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, players take on the role of a hunter sent to explore a settlement within the Monster Hunter universe, completing quests on their journey to seek and slay monsters while improving their skills and earning equipment upgrades. With many challenging monsters and over 200 quests, the latest addition to the series is set to be the most expansive offering to date. The game can be played alone, online (up to four players) on the Wii U system, or locally using up to four Nintendo 3DS systems or a combination of up to three Nintendo 3DS systems and one Wii U system.

    Does anyone know if 3DS users will be able to play with WiiU users? How about using the same character on either version?

      @HakuPSO It has already been confirmed that you will be able to share your game save between the Wii U and 3DS version of the game so I would assume that means that you can use the exact same character between the two versions of the game.  I am unsure if gamers playing on a 3DS will be able to play co-op with other gamers on the Wii U locally or online but as soon as we get more information we will be sure to let you know!  I really hope that Capcom does choose to allow co-op play between the two versions of the game because that would be awesome!

        @J Money Thanks! I sure hope they allow 3DS and WiiU players to play together too. It would be sort of odd if you had to log into on one system and then log out and into the other to see who was on what version.

          @HakuPSO  I really hope that other developers follow suit and allow cross play or even sharing of game saves, as Capcom has done with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.   The two pieces of hardware that Nintendo has developed, Wii U and 3DS, lend themselves to these types of gameplay experiences.

          @J Money Hasn’t this has always been Nintendo’s dream? Remember when they were trying to push “Connectivity” on the world with the GBA GameCube Link Cable? Who else out there still has an N64 Transfer Pak? Hahaha!

    • WillVanZant

      @HakuPSO You can do both, fortunately.

        @WillVanZant  @HakuPSO Oh so cross play is going to be a feature of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate!  Awesome! Now I think I will have to pick up both versions of the game!

  • WillVanZant

    Yes, I finally got an image of the 3DS box art! Thanks, Pure Nintendo!

    These are the kinds of games I’d pick up if I wasn’t so familiar with Capcom’s bullcrap.
