Wii U Version Of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Will Not Be Playable On The GamePad Screen
Capcom have revealed that the Wii U version of the highly anticipated Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will not allow the player to switch the gameplay from the big screen to the GamePad screen. Various titles, such as New Super Mario Bros. U, will include this feature but it appears Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will not be one of them.
The GamePad will of course be used for such things as keeping a track of your inventory and the like, you just won’t be able to play the entire game on the small screen should someone else want the television.
On a more positive note Capcom did also confirm with Siliconera that the downloadable quests that have already been released for the game over in Japan will also be appearing over in the West.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be available in North America and Europe in March next year on the Wii U and the 3DS. Both adaptations allow for cross-saving and cross-play between versions, but it’s only the Wii U version that will allow you to play online.
It looks like you’ll have to get the 3DS version if you’re looking for a more portable feel to your monster hunting but if you fancy taking it online you may have to get the Wii U one. Are you excited for this game? Which version will you be picking up?
