Review Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (3DS)
A monstrous portable adventure
Back when the 3DS handheld was looking for saviours during the Holiday season of 2011, a certain mustachioed plumber was joined in Japan by Monster Hunter 3 G, an expanded version of the popular Wii title Monster Hunter Tri. Its sales were eye-catching and reflective of the fact that handheld Monster Hunter titles are...

About The Game
The popular fantasy action franchise Monster Hunter™ is now one of the most iconic gaming series in the world selling over 21 million copies worldwide since the series began in 2004.
Players take on the role of a hunter and are sent to explore a settlement within the Monster Hunter™ universe, completing quests on their journey to seek and slay monsters whilst improving their skills and earning equipment upgrades. With many challenging monsters and over 200 quests the latest edition to the series is set to be the most expansive offering to date.
Monster Hunter™ 3 Ultimate utilises the functionalities of the Wii U console and Nintendo 3DS system to provide players with a truly intuitive hunting experience. The touch screen feature of both platforms allows players to quickly access in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games whilst the high quality graphics of Wii U and 3D visuals of Nintendo 3DS powered by the latest iteration of Capcom’s MT Framework deliver a unique and stunning world for players to explore. Taking advantage of the portability of Nintendo 3DS, players can exchange their guild card that contains all their hunter’s information with other players via StreetPass™.
Players can experience the world of Monster Hunter™ alone or in four player local play using Nintendo 3DS. Finding nearby hunters to adventure on quests with is now even easier via the local Nintendo 3DS search feature. Wii U players will be able to enjoy the hunt with Nintendo 3DS players via a local wireless connection. Gamers that own both a Wii U and Nintendo 3DS can take advantage of the inter compatibility of save data between the two consoles, taking the hunt from the living room wherever they go.
Will it have local multiplayer or some form of download play? If not count me out...
Yep, it'll have local multiplayer.
Hm... never played this before, is it worth it, I think NO-IT IS! After further Japanese videos(with English dubs) this is worth it.
Is this a remake of Tri or a new game?
Basically a new game but with the same locations and a couple new additions.
I can't wait 'till my birthday in April, Im getting the Wii U and 3DS versions!
The whole concept is amazingly AWESOME, the rpg elements, the monsters... One HUGE complaint, the controls! I would LOVE this game if the controls weren't so frustrating. Honestly, it's like they've got the same 3d control engine from 1996 and they were mediocre/BAD even for that time.
Fix the controls and I'll buy 3 copies. If not, I won't even buy 1.
Unfortunately for you, the controls are what makes this game what it is. Part of what separates pro players from new players is their mastery of the controls and timing. But I am curious as to what controls you would prefer although if it is along the lines of devil may cry or ninja gaiden, I have to strongly disagree. The one thing about the controls that capcom appears to be having a change of heart on is the camera. Monster hunter 4 will have a full range camera. All I can say is, finally! I understand the psp having the limited camera control but in the day and age where everything has two sticks, it isn't necessary anymore.
The Wii U review is out, and I hope this is just as good.
So tell me y we need online server for 3ds cause this is set up for it already it doesn't make since

i'm thinking of buying this game and I have a question playing this game without the circle pad pro is it annoying?
If you are a fan of the series then there is no problem since the controls are not as different from the PSP, In fact I have never even thought of getting the Circle pad pro, Try Mastering with the original control scheme, If unable then it wouldn't hurt to get the circle pad pro.
By the way I have the Monster Hunter Recommendation: Promotion code which I got but never got to give it out, So if you haven't yet purchased MH3U , I would be glad to give you the code before it expires (31/07/2013) and that's if only you don't mind a downloaded copy . I have a Euro 3DS.
@uximal don't worry I already got the game finished highrank and working my way up to g rank its true the controls are fine having fun with the game so far (which armor set do you recommend to begin g rank?)
