Overview

The popular fantasy action franchise Monster Hunter is now one of the most iconic gaming series in the world selling over 21 million copies worldwide since the series began in 2004. 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 whilst 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 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 whilst the high quality graphics of Wii U powered by the latest iteration of Capcom's MT Framework deliver a unique and stunning world for players to explore. Wii U players will be able to enjoy the hunt with Nintendo 3DS players via a local wireless connection. Gamers that own both a Wii U and Nintendo 3DS can take advantage of the inter compatibility of save data between the two consoles, taking the hunt from the living room wherever they go.

We've all be eagerly waiting for an update on the software update... and it's finally here! I am very pleased to confirm the exact date and time the update will go live:

April 15, 2013 at 5pm PDT
April 16, 2013 at 2am CEST


I put the two timezones there, because as you know, this software update adds the highly-demanded Cross-region online servers!

And if you haven't gotten it from the screen above, this update will allow GamePad Play support as well; so you can play Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate while someone uses the TV... win-win situation there!

There's also an active CAG group thread if anyone is interested:

This game is extremely fun and addicting. I've logged over 60 hours and have barely scratched the surface of content to do with the game.

I can't wait for the off TV patch. :D



Edit: Yeah I know you knew about it Frisky, I just wanted to give other CAGs the heads up since it wasn't posted in the OP of this thread.

I know. That's why I made this thread just for general discussion for those not looking for people to play with.
