Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will launch for Wii U and 3DS on March 19 in North America and March 22 in Europe, Capcom has announced. A digital download version of the game will also be made available around the same time frame. A demo will arrive on both the Wii U and 3DS eShops on February 21.

Capcom has also confirmed voice chat support for the online multiplayer portion of the Wii U version. And if you’re a fan of text chat, you’ll be able to use either your Wii U touchscreen keyboard or a regular USB one.
