Monster Hunter 3 Ultimately Released
Lucky gamers in the US can now play Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, but us poor UK folk have to wait a little while longer until the 22nd when we can buy it either retail or through the eShop for the Nintendo 3DS or 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. With an additional 38 monsters since the release of Monster Hunter Tri, extra stages, hundreds of additional quests and thousands of new pieces of equipment, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is the most expansive offering of the series to date.
Players can experience the world of Monster Hunter alone or with three friends in local multiplayer on Nintendo 3DS, while Will 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. Nintendo 3DS players will also have access to play online via the Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Packet Relay Tools for Nintendo 3DS (appropriate cables required and sold separately), which utilizes the Wii U hardware to play online using one Nintendo 3DS hand-held system.
