28th February 2013 – Capcom® and Nintendo have today confirmed that following the 22 March release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U™, a software update will be released in April as a response to Capcom community feedback.
The software update will add online cross-region functionality, allowing European and North American gamers to play together online in up to four-player battles*. Monster Hunters will also be able to play the game using just the Wii U GamePad without the need for a TV screen as the software update makes the title compatible with off-TV play.
Capcom will be continuing to support Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for several months after release with additional free of charge downloadable quests. The first quest will be available at launch.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate releases across Europe on 22 March for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS™, both at retail as well as on Nintendo eShop.
* Online play for gamers in Europe and North America will be completely free to play, although broadband Internet charges still apply.
