We’re pleased to confirm that a software update will be released in April for the Wii U version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate as a response to Capcom community feedback. The software update will add online cross-region functionality, allowing European and North American 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 Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for several months after release with additional free of charge downloadable quests for both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. The first quest will be available at launch.

 

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate releases across Europe on 22 March for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, both at retail as well as on Nintendo eShop.

 

* Online play for gamers in Europe and North America will be completely free to play, although broadband Internet charges still apply.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
