Monster Hunter 3 to receive huge update in April

Capcom® and Nintendo have today confirmed that following the March 23rd release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U™ , a software update will be released in April as a response to Capcom community feedback. The software update will add online cross-region functionality, allowing Australasian, European and North American gamers to play together online in up to four-player battles. Monster Hunters will also be able to play the game using just the Wii U GamePad without the need for a TV screen as the software update makes the title compatible with off-TV play.

Wii U and Nintendo 3DS™ owners can also get a glimpse of the incredible online casino adventure that awaits with a free demo for each system, now available to download from Nintendo eShop.
If you’re taking your first steps in the world of Monster Hunter, you can learn the ropes in a quest aimed squarely at beginners, while experienced players can dive right into a more advanced quest against a formidable foe. And because Monster Hunter is all about customisation, you can arm yourself with one of 12 different weapons before heading out to make your mark.
