Released back in December in Japan, Nintendo Australia have today locked in the local release date Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate.
To avoid having you wait any longer, Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate will (finally) be hitting Australian shores March 23, same day for both Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. Aside from being available at retail, the game can also be downloaded digitally from the eShop.
While essentially being the same game on either console, players who own both versions will be able to transfer their save files between the two consoles. This means you can embark on an epic quest at home on Wii U, then transfer said file across to your 3DS for portable questing.
Both versions will support local and online multiplayer with up to four other players. Additionally, Wii U players can use the GamePad’s built in microphone to chat with their online buddies, making for a more streamlined and hassle free online experience.
Of course, March 23 is still a while away, something Nintendo is all too understanding of. From February 21 a demo for Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate will be downloadable from the Nintendo eShop on both Wii U and 3DS. The demo will include one beginner and one advanced quest, with up to 12 weapons to choose from for players to tackle Lagombi and Plesioth.

I’d usually ask who’s getting this one, but I know you all are! So enjoy!
