After almost having to wait a year Europe/North America finally got some news on the latest Monster Hunter game to come out. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is coming out Match 2013 for the Wii U and 3DS. It will feature features on the Wii U and 3DS to interact with the game like never before. Capcom had this to say in a press release about it today.
"Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate utilizes the functionalities of Wii U and Nintendo 3DS 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 while the high quality graphics of the Wii U and 3D visuals of the Nintendo 3DS powered by the latest iteration of Capcom's MT Framework® delivers a unique and stunning world for players to explore. Taking advantage of the portability of the 3DS, players can exchange their guild card that contains all of 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 the 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 to wherever they go."
