Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate | oprainfall

The introduction cinematic for Capcom’s upcoming title, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, has begun making its rounds throughout the Internet. Not just a remake of the intro from Monster Hunter Tri, the new cinematic shows off some of the locales in which hunters will roam. Most importantly, of course, are the monsters. The intro shows various hunters being terrorized by returning monsters Rathalos and Lagiacrus, as well as the new flagship monster, Brachydios.

We’re only a week away from the US release of the game on March 19. The demos for both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game are available for download to help make the wait more bearable.

    7 more days, got my Wii U and 3DS ready. Finishing Assassins Creed 3 and Runner2. It seems I will have to play Monster Hunter and Batman: Arkham City at the same time.

    • MusubiKazesaru

      I say play Batman first, Monster Hunter will eat up a lot more time than it and Arkam City is addictive until the moment it’s over

    • Lightthrower

      Batman? Wow you are really backlogged (same problem here sadly).

    • Cesar Barroso

      hahaha, well We are lucky because good games are good anytime.

  • MusubiKazesaru

    I’m hoping this game eats a lot of my time and that the online mode is easier for me to pick up than the one in Tri.

  • Darn it.. I might actually buy a Wii U next week.. Target is having a buy a Wii U system get 50 dollar gift card back deal. I might use that gift card on the purchase of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate…

    This may sound like a dumb question, but will I need to play the previous Monster Hunter games to understand this one?

    • No, in fact the story isn’t important in this games, in MHTri you arrive as the new hero/hunter of the Town that it has several problems with the monsters. The game explains you the gameplay and to learn the art of hunting with easy missions. The fun and addictive is the online game.

    • Ibi Salmon

      That’s odd.

      But at least I don’t have to worry about hunting down the old games this time. Thanks!

  • You know, I think monster hunters are dumber than a box of rocks, but they’re sturdy folk, I’ll give ’em that. The fact that they can get pummeled by one of those things and only faint is a feat in and of itself.

    only a week left i can’t wait

  • Hietala

    Can’t wait… I’ll end up with a hundred hours or more logged by the time Defiance goes live in April, hopefully most of the addiction will have ran its course and I can settle into playing both normally. Haven’t gotten much chance at a MH game since Tri and that ended over a year ago, sadly…
