Pour one out: Monster Hunter Tri servers nixed in April

Goodnight, sweet prince

“Out with the old, in with the new,” as they say. Capcom is getting ready to launch Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and in return, they’re shutting down the servers for the Wii’s Monster Hunter Tri on April 30th.

You’ll have six weeks after the launch of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Six weeks to get your shi*t together, and prepare for the inevitable transition.

I feel for all of you who are still playing, as Monster Hunter Tri was one of the best online Wii games out there.

Whether the move is to legitimately cut costs or force people to play the new game is unknown, but April 30th will be a sad day, nonetheless.
