|The popular fantasy action franchise Monster Hunter is now one of the most iconic gaming series in the world selling over 21 million copies worldwide since the series began in 2004. Players take on the role of a hunter and are sent to explore a settlement within the Monster Hunter universe, completing quests on their journey to seek and slay monsters whilst improving their skills and earning equipment upgrades. With many challenging monsters and over 200 quests the latest edition to the series is set to be the most expansive offering to date. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate utilizes the functionalities of the Wii U console to provide players with a truly intuitive hunting experience. The touch screen feature of both platforms allows players to quickly access in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games whilst the high quality graphics of Wii U powered by the latest iteration of Capcom's MT Framework deliver a unique and stunning world for players to explore. Wii U players will be able to enjoy the hunt with Nintendo 3DS players via a local wireless connection. Gamers that own both a Wii U and Nintendo 3DS can take advantage of the inter compatibility of save data between the two consoles, taking the hunt from the living room wherever they go.|
Lots of Depth8/22/2013
This game has an absolute insane amount of things to collect and acquire. To sum it up, it basically has you hunting large monsters to complete quests or hunt for certain crafting materials. From there you use the materials you've collected to upgrade your armor and weapons to become stronger over time. The best addition is the multiplayer mode where you can play online with other people. I was really happy to find out that voice chat is also available so you can efficiently coordinate your attacks with the team.

Amazing co-op online!3/26/2013
This is my first Monster Hunter game and I've been having a blast with it online ever since I first got it. Working together in a group of 4 is amazing, everyone has seemed pretty helpful so far too. It's important to work as a team and learn the attacks of the enemies. It's true the game is rather difficult but it's also very rewarding at the same time. The whole point to advance your character is to gather supplies to build better weapons and armor. The game also has voice chat and an on-screen keyboard to make it easy to coordinate attacks and strategies. If you own a Wii U I'd really recommend this game as it has so much value attached to it! Happy hunting!
