Launching next Spring, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will bring Capcom’s flagship to both the Nintendo 3DS and soon-to-be-released Wii U.
Aside from an HD buff in visuals, the Wii U will also allow hunters to band together in groups of four before taking the fight online via the internet. It’s by no means a revolutionary step for the franchise, having been featured in the very first Monster Hunter, though Ultimate promises a number of improvements as to how this section of the game will operate.
Much to our bewilderment, the 3DS version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, won’t facilitate online play. Instead, like so many other portable instalments of the series, co-op can only be accessed locally. However, it’s not all bad news: if sat in a room where there are three 3DS units and a Wii U, all four can join together.
