The other big reveal during Nintendo's Wii U event this morning didn't receive as much fanfare as the Bayonetta 2 announcement, but is likely just as significant -- if not more so. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, known in Japan as Monster Hunter Tri G, is coming to North American in March of 2013 for both the Wii U and the 3DS. That will make it three years since the last major Monster Hunter release in North America, and you can bet fans are getting impatient.
The popular, challenging action title will feature full online multiplayer, local co-op, and the ability to progress simultaneously between the Wii U and 3DS. All of the additional features added between Tri and Tri G should also be included, though the announcement didn't go into details otherwise.
Considering Monster Hunter 4 will be released in Japan around the same time as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is being released in North America, I'm not sure if this news is everything fans were hoping for. I don't doubt they'll take what they can get, but an global launch for MH4 would have torn the roof down. Unfortunately, no trailer accompanied the announcement, so the logo is all we have for now.
