After tons of feedback from gamers, Capcom has announced that the Wii U version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be getting a software update that adds Cross-Region online and Off-TV play. The update is expected to roll out sometime in April after the game launches on March 19th in North America and March 22nd in Europe for the 3DS and Wii U.
This update will bring about the merging of the North American and European servers into a single server for all gamers to hunt together. There will also be a steady stream of free DLC quests to keep players questing with the first DLC available at launch.
The game will also be getting the ability to play of the Wii U GamePad screen with this update. Part of the charm of the Wii U is the ability to play on the GamePad screen to keep on gaming when a TV may not always be available at home.
Hunters prepare because good times are coming in less than a months time. While it may be disappointing that these features were not included initially it is impressive how Capcom is taking fan feedback to make improvements to the game.
