Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Release Details, Capcom to Drop Original's Wii Server

Wii-U 3DS Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Capcom

The world of Monster Hunter is back in the news and not a moment too soon. Capcom Unity announced that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will make its way to North American 3DS and Wii-U consoles on March 19. Digital copies of each version will be hitting the eShop not long after the retail release, but no pinpointed date exists. A demo shall be available on both systems as early as February 21.

Capcom also notes that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will make use of voice chat on the Wii-U, a feature most handy when attempting to dispatch of creatures. Unfortunately, not all news is positive for fans as Monster Hunter 3 on the Nintendo Wii has officially been put on notice by Capcom. The online multiplayer servers will be decommissioned on April 30, a move that Capcom hopes will give players an adequate amount of time to transition.

Will you be putting your money down on Monster Hunter for the Wii U or 3DS?


I have the Wii U version pre-ordered and I am very tempted to pick up the 3DS version sometime down the road, especially since save data can be sent over to the 3DS. I don't have a headset for the Wii U yet, but might buy one just for this game.
