Nintendo and Capcom have entered into a new distribution agreement for the forthcoming Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, scheduled for release exclusively on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U in South Africa, in March 2013.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate utilises the unique functionalities of Wii U and Nintendo 3DS to provide players with a truly intuitive hunting experience. The optional new Target Camera feature now makes it easier to focus quickly on nearby monsters with a simple press of the L Button. Quick access to in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games is enabled by the touch screen feature on both platforms, whilst the high quality graphics of Wii U and 3D visuals of Nintendo 3DS deliver a unique and stunning world for players to explore. Taking advantage of the portability of Nintendo 3DS, players can exchange their guild card – that contains 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 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 form hunting parties of up to four players online or enjoy the hunt with Nintendo 3DS players via a local wireless connection. Fans who own both a Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, as well as a copy of the game for each system, will be able to take advantage of the inter-compatibility of save data between the two consoles, taking the hunt from their living room wherever they go.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, the biggest, boldest Monster Hunter title yet, launches in South Africa on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U in March 2013.
