: : : : : Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is an action adventure game released for both the Wii U and 3DS, and together comprise the nine official flagship entries in Capcom's popular "hunting" series. MH3U combines content from its predecessor releases, Monster Hunter Tri and Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, to become the definitive third generation Monster Hunter game.

Players create a Hunter avatar, then embark on over 200 quests spanning three difficulty ranks. The general aim of the game is to challenge monsters, each with their own attacks and abilities. Defeating monsters will yield valuable materials that players will need to craft a wide variety of weapons and armor. Players are encouraged to mix and match armor and charm pieces to activate a variety of advantageous skills which can aid them during future hunts; some skills are more useful against certain monsters and/or in certain areas of the game.

Underwater battles in certain areas and monsters returns in MH3U after the feature was removed in Portable 3rd, though some revisions made in Portable 3rd carried over to MH3U as well. Not least of these is greater variety in weapons, as MH3U features 12 weapon classes divided between Blademaster (melee) and Gunner (ranged). Each weapon class has its own attack animations and characteristics which players must learn to properly use during actual combat, all while learning the monsters' own attacks!

MH3U supports cross-platform saves, allowing players to transfer saves between the Wii U and 3DS. Both platforms support online multiplayer for up to four players, and the 3DS version also features local multiplayer with the ability to search for other nearby players looking for some help. The 3DS version also supports StreetPass, allowing players to distribute their Hunter cards wirelessly to other players which they can use to hire their hunters to go on special missions.
