Aw yiss. I’ve been spending every free moment training on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate 3DS (which means I’m still in the tutorial) so when the update arrives allowing me to play on the Wii U GamePad, Eric and I will be able to hunt together.
That update is coming April 15, Capcom announced, at 5pm PDT. The update also allows North American and European players to hunt together, so maybe we’ll be able to find a few compatriots when we’re no longer too humilating to behold.
I do not know what I’m doing yet. I’m so bad at this you guys.
Similar to that custom Fire Emblem: Awakening insert we featured last month, you can print this Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate artwork and slip it into the game’s 3DS box. Thanks for making one of these, Robby!
Good news for those of you who double-dipped to buy the Wii U and 3DS versions of this — Capcom intends to release its save data transfer and packet relay tools (the latter lets you play MH3U 3DS online if you’re Wii U is hooked up with a LAN adapter) to the eShop tomorrow.
Thanks to Amazon’s preorder price guarantee, you’ll get the $5 off even if the price goes back up later. And if you’ve already reserved the game through the site, your order should automatically get the discount.
While you’re reading this, we also updated our releases page with today’s new downloadable games for portables — eShop totally went HAM this week. There’s a great Sakura Samurai deal too, for those who haven’t picked that one up yet.
