Here are some new details released by Capcom today regarding Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
The popular fantasy action franchise Monster Hunter returns to Europe and North America with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate launching on Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Players take on the role of a hunter and are sent to explore a settlement within the Monster Hunter universe, completing quests on their journey to seek and slay monsters while improving their skills and earning equipment upgrades. With many challenging monsters and over 200 quests the latest edition to the series is set to be the most expansive offering to date.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate utilizes the functionalities of the Wii U console and Nintendo 3DS system to provide players with a truly intuitive hunting experience. The touch screen feature of both platforms allows players to quickly access in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games while the high quality graphics of Wii U and 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.
