Overview

Taken in parts from the Monster Hunter Wikia:


Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is a re-release of the smash-hit Wii game Monster Hunter Tri. Featuring the same areas, monsters, weapons and more, the game will be released simultaneously for the 3DS and Wii U (with the Wii U version supporting full HD and online play, though cross play between the versions will be possible).

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate's flagship monster is Brachydios, though the American bozart features the Azure Rathalos.

 

Guild

 

It is my hope to, at some point either before or shortly after the launch of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, I plan on arranging a meet of all fellow Wii U players so we, as a site, can play and help together. If you're interested, just post below and I'll be sure to update. If you're looking for a general idea, then just check this out (obviously this was years ago so it will be much more in-depth, but it gives you a feel at least).

Here's who we know are going to be taking part so far (thanks to Mnementh):

Yep. It's a busy month alright.

But I guess it's just over 2 weeks away, right? Not that long to go!

Coincidentally I was playing the demo today again and managed to kill the Snow Bunny with the bow. I don't know how...
