March sees the long-awaited South African launch of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U (R599) and Nintendo 3DS (R499). Both versions will be available in stores and through digital download via the Nintendo eShop.
Players who own both versions will be able to transfer saved data from the Wii U version to their copy on Nintendo 3DS, and vice versa, thereby ensuring a seamless continuation from the HD experience at home to hunting on the go in immersive 3D.
The world of Monster Hunter can be experienced alone or in local multiplayer format, accommodating up to four players on Nintendo 3DS, whereas 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. Wii U owners will also be able to make use of the built-in GamePad microphone to chat with their online hunting party.
Look out for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate from 22 March. In the meantime, check out the latest trailer…
