Capcom confirms Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate for the Wii U
Releasing March next year.
Capcom have announced Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate for the Wii U, as mentioned in an earlier post, and the game will be releasing in March 2013.
Looks like the game’s main attraction will be its connectivity with the 3DS version of the game. More details are given in the announcement video above.
Sounds like a pretty good port to me.
Here’s some info on the game as given by Capcom:
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate utilizes the functionalities of Wii U and Nintendo 3DS to provide players with a truly intuitive hunting experience. The touch screen feature of both platforms allows players to quickly access in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games while the high quality graphics of the Wii U and 3D visuals of the Nintendo 3DS powered by the latest iteration of Capcom’s MT Framework® delivers a unique and stunning world for players to explore. Taking advantage of the portability of the 3DS, players can exchange their guild card that contains all of their hunter’s information with other players via StreetPass.
Players can experience the world of Monster Hunter alone or in four player local play using the Nintendo 3DS. Finding nearby hunters to adventure on quests with is now even easier via the local Nintendo 3DS search feature. Wii U players will be able to enjoy the hunt with Nintendo 3DS players via a local wireless connection. Gamers that own both a Wii U and Nintendo 3DS can take advantage of the inter compatibility of save data between the two consoles, taking the hunt from the living room to wherever they go.
