  • Ooo, I’m so jealous! I have no plans to purchase a Wii U, but I do hope this game does well enough in the States.

  • Marcelo Henrique Chaves

    No thank you! I do not want any information on this title. I cannot get more hyped than i already am. This year just won’t end!!!

      • Shadowman

        That’s the spirit!!

  • That is not where I want my map in MH. I’m confused; are all the battle HUD elements on the pad? In all honesty I would hate to have to juggle between 2 screens while fighting. I’m only going to assume there is an option to switch it since you can use the pro controller as well.

  • Spider-Man

    Getting the 3DS version. There is nothing the Wii U has to offer for me at the moment.

    •  like, free online multiplayer?

      • Barzh

        Free? That’s so inherent and expected it’s not really even worth mentioning.

        • Japan does place fees in some of their games around their region. But still…

      • Spider-Man

        I already have friends to play with via local play.

    • Budgiecat

      What if they add American Godzilla and Gamera?

      • Spider-Man

        I do like Zilla and Gamera, but I’ll have to decline.

        • Budgiecat

          damn it! That just ruined my day

    • Shadowman

      They have online play and it’s free.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Wii U will become mine the moment this game hit shelves.^_^
