Nintendo and Capcom have announced that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will launch exclusively on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in South Africa on 22nd March 2013. Both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS version will be available in stores and as a digital download via Nintendo eShop.
Anyone eager to experience a slice of the unique gameplay the series is famous for, will be able to get their hands on a free demo for each version through Nintendo eShop from 21st of February.
Players who own both versions will be able to transfer their own personal save data from the Wii U version to their copy on Nintendo 3DS, and vice versa, 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 for up to four players on Nintendo 3DS, while 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.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, the biggest Monster Hunter title yet, launches in South Africa on 22nd March 2013 exclusively for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Available in all major retailers, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for 3DS can be purchased for RRP R499 and R599 for Wii U.
