Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will support cross-region play
North American and European gamers can play together
Capcom has confirmed that after the release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Nintendo's Wii U, a software update will be released in April as a response to community feedback.
This software update will add online cross-region functionality, allowing North American and European gamers to play together online in up to four-player battles. Monster Hunters will also be able to play the game using just the Wii U GamePad without the need for a TV screen as the software update makes the title compatible with off-TV play.
Capcom will be continuing to support the game for several months after release with additional free of charge downloadable quests. The first quest will be available at launch.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate releases across North America on March 19, 2013 for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, at retail as well as in the Nintendo eShop.
