Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate may be an old game with some tweaks getting a new release but it still is one of the strongest Nintendo titles coming in the next months. Capcom had the occasion to experiment with cross play features with the Wii U and 3DS version but it looks like the company has decided to pass this time.
Some more news on the game definitely didn’t please fans: the 3DS version will only get local multiplayer and require a Wii U console to go online. At the same time the game’s servers are region locked, meaning that gamers worldwide can’t play with others from different regions.
The backlash has probably been so big that Capcom has today announced that the game will be getting an update during April, bringing some new features to the Wii U version of the game: the off tv play option will be introduced, allowing gamers to play the game fully on the gamepad. Another great addition will be that gamers will be able to play with others from different regions, removing the servers’ lock. The Press Release also confirms that the online components of the game will be free to play in both North America and Europe.
Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate will be launching in North America and Europe on March 22: the update is scheduled to be coming during April.
