Good news everyone! Nintendo’s latest invention, the Wii U, will be getting a not so latest invention, but one we’ve all been waiting for, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
Now, our in-house seer, Matthew Gardiner, foresaw Monster Hunter’s journey across the great sea of Pacific to the continent known as America many moons ago. He invoked Capcom’s words that there’s “good stuff on the way,” for Monster Hunter games in the West, and our gallant team of scribes quickly jotted down his vision.
Now, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is basically Monster Hunter 3 only with online multiplayer and the ability to sync your game between the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The Japanese got their hands on the original Monster Hunter 3 way back in August 2009, and it made its way to the U.S. in April 2010.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be heading to the U.S. and Europe in March 2013. Players will take the role of a hunter set to take on quests and journey around a settlement in the game’s universe, all the while slaying monsters, growing their talents, and upgrading their equipment.
There will be more than 200 quests, and plenty of very large creatures for you to jump as they mosey along peacefully. It will also make use of the touch screen features of the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, giving quick access to field maps, in-game books, weapons, and let you tap away at some of the mini games.
Of course, Japan is already gearing up for Monster Hunter 4 in 2013… but hey, we can’t have everything.
