Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate now has a March 19 release date


7:18 AM on 01.17.2013



It seems as the North American and European release date for the long-awaited Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is finally upon us: March 19th and 22nd respectively.

It'll launch in both 3DS and Wii U form (the latter of which is called Monster Hunter 3G HD in Japan), and will have cross compatibility for save files. The Wii U version will have online play, but the 3DS is local only.

In case you were wondering, the game has keyboard support on the Wii U through a day one update.

Other than Rayman Legends, Pikmin 3, and maybe a few others, this is the only real big Wii U release in the next few months. I can't wait!

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate update arrives April 16

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is great and all, but it could be better. Like, why can't we play against folks outside our region? Or why can't we play using the Wii U's off-TV function? Last month, Capcom promised to address thos...more

This Monster Hunter sword can be yours for 60,000 Zeni!

These are the type of promotional ads I love. Not serious, just having fun, a little dumb, and a great spoof. You can only handle so many promotional trailers for a game. I mean, you already know what to expect by release, s...more

Monster Hunter 4 NA weapon contest winner is an insect glaive
