Nintendo and Capcom have confirmed that they have entered into a new distribution agreement for the forthcoming Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate scheduled for release exclusively on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U across Europe in March 2013. Under the terms of the agreement Nintendo will be responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution of the games throughout European territories and Australia, with Capcom remaining as publisher.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate utilizes the unique functionalities of the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS to provide players with a intuitive hunting experience. The optional new Target Camera feature now makes it easier to focus quickly on nearby monsters with a simple press of the L Button. Quick access to in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini-games is enabled by the touch screen feature on both platforms, whilst the high quality graphics of Wii U and 3D visuals of Nintendo 3DS deliver a unique and stunning world for players to explore. Taking advantage of the portability of Nintendo 3DS, players can exchange their guild card – that contains their hunter’s information – with other players via StreetPass.
