Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U Video Shows Zinogre Quest

By Ishaan . October 12, 2012 . 10:30am

Capcom did a 30-minute live-stream of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the Wii U, which shows off a good deal of in-game footage from the HD version of the game. Take a look at the footage below:



A few points of interest from the stream:

  • Circle Pad Pro support confirmed for U.S. version on 3DS
  • Wii U GamePad can use both the touch screen and analog for camera
  • It sounds like “Zinogre” is the official localized name for “Jinouga”


Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be released in March 2013 on 3DS and Wii U.

    Saying it aloud, I can see how they romanized “Jinouga” in “Zinogre”, but the Ji -> Zi translation still seems really off putting to me. Maybe Jinogre would be more acceptable, but it could just be me having a bad intial reaction. Atleast it’s not a Baroth/ Barioth situation like with Tri.

    • MrRobbyM

      I’m going to call it Jinouga either way. I don’t like the way “Zinogre” sounds. I really like how Jinouga sounds like Jenova.

    • konsama

      That was my most annoying issue, the Z and J, but maybe with J the thought it would sound too much like Jolteon, or they just got lazy and didn’t even try, thank god we got “Rathalos” before they did. 

  • Spider-Man

    I’mma just call it Jinouga.

    As for the game, it doesn’t look too different graphically than the 3DS version though.

      Well considering it’s just n HD re-skin of the 3DS version it’s not going to be like playing Gran Turismo 5 or Metal Gear Solid 4 in 1080p. That video only plays in 360p too so you’re not getting very good quality out of it here.

      •  You can actually play it above 360p bro

        • ZEROthefirst

          Why’d you reply to me? I told the guy I replied to that the video there was in 360p so he wasn’t getting the best quality there.

  • Budgiecat

    Where’s the Ultraman monsters crossover cameos?  That’d be cool

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      You must be looking for Kaiju Busters there.^_^

      • Budgiecat

        Yes this game needs Dinotank. Everyone needs Dinotank.

  • konsama

    I’ll just keep calling it Jinouga, also dat music in the vid literally made me stop wanting to watch it. >_>

  • XypherCode

    Quite amusing :)

  • … It says DLC on the main menu.

    Not you, Nintendo!

    • o3o

       Knowing the Monster Hunter series, DLC most probably refers to the Downloadable Quests and Add-ons (which are most likely for free, like in all the other Monster Hunter games).

      Keep in mind you can transfer your save data from the Wii U 3DS; this probably applies to the Downloadable quests for the 3DS as well. (Remember in MHP, you could download quests, this is probably the ‘DLC’,).

    hilarious. loved the ending.

  • Syn

    Zinogre sounds a little silly to me, Jinouga already sounded like a great english name, sometimes (not all the times), its best to leave things the way they are.

  • What’s funny is that there’s been official merch featuring the “Zinogre” romanization floating around Japan for a while now.
