Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate released
The hunt is on for Wii U owners
Capcom has confirmed that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is available to purchase today in North America and on March 22 across Europe for the Wii U.
In Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, players take on the role of a hunter and are 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.
Players can explore the world alone or with hunting parties of up to four players online or enjoy the hunt with Nintendo 3DS players via a local wireless connection. Those who own both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U versions of the game will be able to transfer their own personal save data from the Wii U version to their copy on Nintendo 3DS, and vice versa.
Capcom plans to support the title with free weekly downloadable quests for several months after launch, the first of which are available this week.
