Monster Hunter Ultimate On Wii U & 3DS Launching March 22nd In Europe, Demo Incoming


Nintendo and Capcom today announce that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will launch exclusively on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS across Europe on 22nd March 2013. Both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS version will be available in stores and as a digital download via Nintendo eShop. Anyone eager to experience a slice of the unique gameplay the series is famous for will be able to get their hands on a free demo for each version through Nintendo eShop from 21st of February.

Players who own both versions will be able to transfer their own personal save data from the Wii U version to their copy on Nintendo 3DS, and vice versa, ensuring a seamless continuation from the HD experience at home to hunting on the go in immersive 3D.

The world of Monster Hunter can be experienced alone or in local multiplayer for up to four players on Nintendo 3DS, while Wii U players will be able to form hunting parties of up to four players online – or enjoy the hunt with Nintendo 3DS players via a local wireless connection. Wii U owners will also be able to make use of the built-in GamePad microphone to chat with their online hunting party.

Those Wii U and Nintendo 3DS owners who are perhaps not familiar with the Monster Hunter series will be able to try Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate via a free demo that will be available for both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions on 21st February via Nintendo eShop. Featuring one Beginner and one Advanced single-player quest, the demos let players choose from 12 weapons as they gear up to tackle Lagombi and Plesioth.
