Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate coming to Wii U and 3DS
Nintendo had a pleasant surprise for Monster Hunter fans at their presentation earlier today. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, another enhanced port of the most recent entry in the franchise, will be hitting both 3DS and Wii U. North America and Europe are included in that plan right from the outset.
Being described as "The most expansive installment in the Monster Hunter series", Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will breathe new life into the title with intuitive usages of the hardware for both versions. The touch-screen will bring about a slew of new features, including quick access of in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games. The 3DS version will allow players to exchange their guild card, an item containing all their hunter information, with other players through StreetPass.
The Wii U version will have both local and online multiplayer, while the 3DS version is local only. Cross-play between the versions is also possible, including save transfer.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be a launch game in Japan and included in a bundle. The game will hit western shores next year in March.
