Capcom have today announced that the 3rd instalment of their fantasy action smash Monster Hunter will be launching across Europe and North America on Nintendo's Wii-U & 3DS consoles in March 2013.
Promising to be "the most expansive offering to date" Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is designed to take advantage of both the Wii-U & 3DS features.
From the press release...
"Monster Hunter™ 3 Ultimate utilises the functionalities of the Wii U console and Nintendo 3DS system 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 whilst the high quality graphics of Wii U and 3D visuals of Nintendo 3DS powered by the latest iteration of Capcom’s MT Framework deliver a unique and stunning world for players to explore. Taking advantage of the portability of Nintendo 3DS, players can exchange their guild card that contains all 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 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 wherever they go"
So there you have it. You and your friends can take the hunt out of the living room to wherever you want to go (probably the bedroom or other such room with comfortable furnishings). Happy trails!
Monster Hunter 3 is released in March 2013 on 3DS and Wii-U.
