Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate WILL have cross-region play

Update in April to add cross-region and off-TV funcionality

I know many a MonHun fan was all grumpy-faced when Capcom confirmed that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U would have region-locked servers. Sure, the original Wii version was likewise segregated, but there was still hope that Capcom would work extra hard to join hands across the globe this time.

Good news, chuckle monkeys! Because of strong community feedback, Capcom has opted to make cross-region play a thing, though it won't be possible immediately out the gate. MH3U will land in North America on March 19 and in Europe on March 22, and an update in April will allow the two regions to intermingle. Japan is left out of this deal, but still, not bad!

Also included in the update is off-TV play, so you'll be able to quest with another party a continent over even as you pray to the porcelain goddess. Just try not to drown in all that hedonism.
