So yesterday Nintendo America officially revealed that the Wii U console would be released in the US come 18th of November and will be priced at $299 and $349 for the basic set and deluxe set respectively. If that wasn’t good enough news for Wii U hopefuls, it seems that we can expect Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate to make its way onto the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS console as well! This was revealed by Monster Hunter producer Ryozo Tsujimoto himself, and according to the announcement video, gameplay will not be console-exclusive, meaning that players can save their games on their Wii U or 3DS and pick up where they left off on either device.
The game will of course be taking advantage of the touchscreen capabilities of both consoles, although the full details of that have yet to be revealed. Either way Tsujimoto has promised that they will be updating us on the progress of the game regularly, so be sure to check back with us at a later date for more updates. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the Wii U and 3DS is expected to see a release in March of 2013.
