Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Confirmed for Wii U and 3DS in March 2013

The Most Expansive Installment in the Monster HunterTM Series Comes to Europe and North America

SAN MATEO, Calif. — September 13, 2012 —Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed that Monster Hunter™ 3 Ultimate will be launching on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS across Europe and North America in March 2013.

The popular fantasy action franchise Monster Hunter™ is now one of the most iconic gaming series in the world selling over 21 million copies worldwide since the series began in 2004. Players take on the role of a hunter and are sent to explore a settlement within the Monster Hunteruniverse, completing quests on their journey to seek and slay monsters while improving their skills and earning equipment upgrades. With many challenging monsters and over 200 quests, the latest edition to the series is set to be the most expansive offering to date.

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.
