Product Description

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.

  • Expansive Monster Hunter world – equipment and weapon upgrades, challenging monsters and over 200 quests to tackle make this latest offering the most expansive in the series so far.
  • Utilise 3DS functionalities – The touch screen provides easy access to in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games.
  • 3D visuals – The beautiful world of Monster Hunter, powered by Capcom’s latest iteration of the MT Framework, appears visually stunning and unique for players to enjoy on 3DS format
  • Don’t hunt on your own – Connect with up to three friends in four player local play via the Nintendo 3DS or online via the Wii U. Wii U players can also link up with Nintendo 3DS players over a local connection.
  • Search for fellow hunters! – Use the local 3DS search feature to find other hunters in your location.
  • Take the experience with you wherever you go – Share your save data between your Wii U home console and the Nintendo 3DS, allowing the Monster Hunter experience to be truly portable.
  • Meet your companions – Never feel alone in the vast world of Monster Hunter with the aid of your two companions, Cha-Cha and Kayamba, who will assist you on your quests.
  • Exchange your information – Share your guild card with fellow hunters via the Nintendo StreetPass function.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what i was hoping for 5 Jun 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Verified Purchase
This game is fantastic! It has a huge selection of monsters to hunt, and all weapon types are unlocked, so you won't get bored using just a couple of weapon types over and over. This game has endless hours worth of playtime to those people who are willing to spend the time on this game, which i highly recommend! Having played both the original and MHF2, i can happily say this is the best one yet, and easily the best one to start with if you are new to the series.

The only real downside to this game is not really in the game itself, but the hand cramping you may end up getting for periods of extended use, and the touch screen camera control instead of a second joystick can be a little awkward at times. However it is still completely playable, and you can always get the Circle Pad Pro extension for your 3ds, which adds on a joystick to the side, so that you don't have to use the touchscreen.

For those of you who have played previous generations of this game, the old monsters that are in this version have been fully updated with new attacks and AI, while still retaining the old feel. You will NOT be disappointed by this game!

For the newer players, the game can be a bit tedious at the start, as the quests you are given are usually about gathering or hunting smaller monsters, but if you can bear through that then you will get into HUGE amount of fun that is hunting GIANT MONSTERS.

My favourite game series of all time *****

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played many Monster Hunter games in the past and have always found them compelling and a lot of fun.
The thing you have to realise about this game is that it is not a total walk in the park. It starts off pretty easy, but you will soon have to learn to strategies, be patient and be willing to learn attack patterns of each monster that you have to take down...but there is nothing better than taking down a behemoth that when you first witnessed, wanted to cry over!
If you want a game to just jump into for a few minutes, this probably is not for you!

So, the good points:

- Big battles with lots going on at once, all in glorious 3d at 60 frames per second. It looks fluid and gorgeous.
- Tonnes of different weapons, armour, items..bugs...fish...there is just SO much depth to this game!
- Beautiful array of monsters, ranging from vibrant and exotic, to demonic and terrifying!
- Great variety of different quests and places to visit..from lush woodlands, to barren wastelands where you need cool drinks to survive!
- Pet pigs..cats..acorn things...everything you can make yours and customise.
- If you have friends with this game, it will be great fun and could lead to some epic encounters!

A couple of 'negative' points:

- No online play, even though the Wii U version does. It's a bit annoying because not everyone will have friends who will be willing to buy this game, so multiplayer is strictly local sadly.
- You really do need to invest in the 3DS XL Circle pad pro. People rant on about how they can manage without it, and yes, I can do - but it is more FUN and EASIER to use it. You won't know what I'm saying until you try it yourself.

Overall, the 'negatives' are only minor gripes.

This is a fantastic game, BUY now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing game 21 Nov 2013
By Watson
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Verified Purchase
Never played a monster hunter game but heard good reviews on it, and gave it a try. I am very happy with it and can easily see myself playing 50+ hours on it. Lots of quests and you get to make gear and weapons out of the monsters you kill/capture. Also there is bonus stats for a full set ect. Also the behavior of the monsters is very interesting like they limp away when you hurt them so much, and you have to chase them through different areas. There is a very strong tactical and strategic element to the game as the monsters have several attacks and they are mostly randomly performed but with tell tell sighs that you pick up on when you have killed them multiple times. ( which you will need to do if you want a set of armour)

There are 12 weapon types with different combos and a special powerup attack or power mode you need to charge. Each weapon can be upgraded many times often giving you the choice between several different choices. Also the many traps like electric trap and pitfall traps are very good and further the strategic element of the game. the only one draw back i have with this game is the extremely hard to use camera on the 3DS.. You have to press on the touchscreen part with your right hand thumb which means you cant press the x,a,y buttons used for combat. I hear there is an addon for the 3DS which negates this experience but costs 16£ no thanks... You can get used to it after a while.

Overall there is so much in this game to do, there is no other game on 3DS that I have owned that I spent more time on than this game.. I have spent 22 hours so far got a few armour sets got a nice longsword that does lightning damage and looks like chainsaw blade... so good... lol.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent game, excellent gift 23 May 2013
Platform for Display:Nintendo 3DS|Verified Purchase
Although this is the 3DS version of the game it has sharper, cleaner graphics than the WiiU version & the 3D is excellent. This game has months of gameplay before you even take into account any of the DLC available and also has almost infinate replay value as there are many different weapon styles to choose from. While the game is not plot heavy some of the games mechanics take a while to get into so this game rewards you for putting hours in.

If you're looking for a game that will keep you busy for maybe half a year - i recommend this

If you're looking for a quick game for when you're sat on the bus look elsewhere
