'Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate' for Wii U and 3DS.
Capcom has confirmed that its upcoming Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate video game will be releasing onto Nintendo's Wii U and 3DS systems in North America on March 19, 2013.
The full game will also be offered for digital purchase on both systems during this launch time frame and the Wii U game will fully support the voice chat functionality available on that system. Hunters looking to embark on their journeys sooner will be treated to a free playable demo on each platform. The demo will be available on February 21.
In Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, players take on the role of a hunter sent to explore a settlement within the Monster Hunter universe, completing quests on their journey to seek and slay monsters while improving their skills and earning equipment upgrades. With a variety of challenging monsters and more than 200 quests, Capcom calls this latest addition to the series "the most expansive offering to date."
Players can experience Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate alone, online (up to four players) on the Wii U system, or locally using as many as four Nintendo 3DS systems. Alternatively, players can also use a combination of up to three Nintendo 3DS systems and one Wii U system.
The ESRB has rated Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate "T for Teen".
