Platform: Nintendo 3DS
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate utilises the functionality of the Nintendo 3DS to provide players with a truly intuitive hunting experience. The touchscreen allows players to quickly access in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games while the 3D visuals of Nintendo 3DS, powered by the latest iteration of Capcom’s MT Framework, 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 all 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 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 wherever they go.
Please Note: 3DS titles are not compatible with standard Nintendo DS consoles
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is a multiplayer action game with elements taken from role-playing games and MMORPGs. The player takes on the role of a hunter in a mediaeval-themed setting, and can join with other hunters both online and offline to try to defeat a range of cunning, powerful and often gigantic monsters. Players can gather items and supplies from the surrounding environment, as well as harvesting components for weapons/armour from defeated monsters. As the player hunts and defeats more formidable foes, they can fashion more efficient weapons and stronger armour, marking them out as skilled hunters.
The game will be released on both Nintendo 3DS and on Wii U with compatible, transferable save-files, enabling the user to continue his progress across both consoles. There are also extensive multiplayer options, both offline and online with both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U players.
