North America: For $19.99, from now until February 3rd

    Why is the Wii U version so expensive in Europe? Not really much of a sale when it costs twice as much as the North American version.

    • You think that’s bad? MH3U in Australia is $70 on the Wii U and $60 on the 3DS. All Australian gamers know it’s cheaper to import.

  • $15672307

    Geez, that price difference between regions.

  • I decided to actually pick this up. $20 is /really/ cheap– much cheaper than physical editions for either version on Amazon, right now. I have the space still on my Wii U since I mainly just buy VC games otherwise, and I had the money in my eShop account.

    YES. A sale was the only reason I haven’t picked up the Wii U version yet. I much rather have a physical copy, but hey, I can’t go wrong for 20 bucks.

    I’ll download this right away and i’ll post my id/friend code/whatever Nintendo uses nowadays in a few days once I get some decent armor and what not :D

    hm should i get it? i still haven’t finished MH Tri…

    • Showmeyomoves

      Forget Tri and get this! This has all the same content and more.

      Much, much more…

    • konsama

      And you surely never will, MHTri requires you to have online to access high rank and like half the content of the game, and in case you didn’t know, the servers are down, so you’re permanently locked from that content until someone makes a private server for it.

      MH3U instead has all the content available on MHtri, and most of the content of MHP3rd, and you can access and paly everything whether you’re playing alone or in a group. And both the Wii U and 3DS versions are the exact same game.

      The only difference is you can play online with the Wii U version, whereas the 3DS one is limited to local play.

        ok i’m sold

  • Godman

    Already jumped on it now I’m going partner up with my bros Wiiu for some family hunting

  • $20? Really?

  • Nanajana

    I’ve been constantly bitching about how I hated the control on the 3DS…but at this price, it’s super tempting to try it one more time…

    And no, piss off if you’re gonna recommend circle Pro, because I’m never gonna get that cancer.

    • Greg

      Are you talking about the camera controls? I recommend using your right thumb to move the camera with the on-screen D pad on the bottom screen (and no, it’s not in anyway uncomfortable). I’m sure everyone without a circle pad pro does the same. I personally find nothing wrong with the controls.

      • malek86

        That was fine for land camera (which you won’t use often anyway), but underwater camera was terrible that way. At least the lock-on makes it a little better, but overall, I really just hope they won’t have underwater combat again.

        • Greg

          Can’t say I really noticed but I do realize what you mean now. It isn’t “terrible” from my experience, but I would admit it could be a little better. And there’s no underwater combat in Monster Hunter 4 so you don’t have to worry about that.

    Go kiddies!

  • mojack411

    Hmm, very tempting. I already own the Wii U version but have wished many a times for the portability of the 3DS version when my friends pulled aheead of me.

  • Linhua

    … WOW a second chance.

    … sale ended at the dreaded GameStop before I had a chance to get it and I thought ‘Well, I guess it wasn’t meant to be.’

    … I guess it really IS meant to be .-.

    … now I need Wii U friends…
