Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

Never be unprepared

As if the confirmation of XSEED bringing Pandora’s Tower to the states wasn’t enough for you, Capcom released some hefty details about their upcoming title in the ever heralded Monster Hunter series, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. This announcement comes in the form of a press release littered with details including the release date, being March 19 in North America and March 22 for Europe, a new trailer, and both versions of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate being available as digital downloads around that same time frame! A demo will be released as well February 21, to make the wait just that much easier. Capcom was also happy to announce the Wii U iteration will include voice chat and virtual keyboard, accessible from the Wii U GamePad.

Unfortunately, their was a snippet of bad news near the end of the press release stating: The Monster Hunter Tri servers would come to a close April 30, 2013. Don’t fret fellow hunters, you still have plenty of time left to rid the land of those vile beasts.

Pre-order from Amazon today!

  • That’s some fantastic box art.

  • MG

    OH MAN!! Can’t flippin wait to play this! Cool news on the digital download too.

  • Neoragnadragon

    is this info towards both versions or just the Wii U? like demo wise and all

  • I don’t know what’s better, the box art or that fact that we are actually getting a Monster Hunter game.

    • XypherCode

      Yeah that’s one sweet box art! Even better than the JP one IMO. :))

  • I lost my Wii data when my hard drive blew. i started it again when i got the Wii back, but then Ultimate was announced so I stopped. Want to be hungry for Monster Hunter come March. Glad we finally have a date!

  • This is the only game that has me wanting a Wii U. That cover art is superb.

  • March 22! And the demo out on my best friend’s birthday!

    It’s good to see they won’t be shutting down the Tri servers as soon as 3U comes out. And as has been mentioned above, that is some kick-ass box art.

  • Love the boxart.

    So sad about the Tri servers. At least we’ll still have Mario Kart Wii and Goldeneye online multiplayer 🙂 … but for how long 🙁
