Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Won’t Let You Play On The Wii U GamePad Screen

Ever since its release in Japan last year, Capcom have been supporting Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate with downloadable high-rank quests to keep giving players more things to do. There’s quite the list of them.


We got in touch with Capcom USA to ask if download quests will be made available for the western release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate as well, and the good news is that they will.


We also asked if the Wii U version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate would support the option to play the game on the Wii U GamePad’s screen, rather than the television, and unfortunately, it will not. The Wii U version does, however, allow you to rearrange your UI on the GamePad, just like the bottom screen in the Nintendo 3DS version. You can watch a demonstration of this here.


Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be released in the U.S. and Europe in March 2013. Both versions will support cross-play and cross-saving. The Wii U version will also allow for online multiplayer.
