Is it possible to play with a 3ds version locally, and play online at the same time? If so, the 3ds version will be able to 'piggyback' off the wiiU's internet capability.
Probably not.

Depending on how it connects, you could probably use Xlink Kai. Like we had to do back with the PSP versions.

Several Capcom-Unity staff have mentioned it in various posts on their forums in response to some peoples questions. They themselves wish the 3DS version would have had Online Play, but said it just won't have it, sadly. Though I'm looking forward to the cross-play and save file transfer from Wii U to 3DS and visa versa for on-the-go fun.

Edit: Now I'm curious - or at least I *wish* the 3DS and Wii U could Ad Hoc to get the 3DS version online. Would be fun to have a friend sitting next to you with their 3DS while you're on the Wii U and you connect the both of you to an online game - but I don't think that'll be possible. I think the the cross-play between platforms will just be for wireless link play. Unless they start clarifying a lot more stuff.

I would assume MH3 & MH3G/U are considered different games and the saves would not be shareable between systems or games. You'll more than likely have to start a new character. Also, the 3DS version of MH3G/U will NOT support Online Play. It can however play wirelessly with a Wii U for Multiplayer LAN-style play.

Edit: Would also like to add that I did, sadly, buy a 3DS for this game and franchise. And though I am happy we are getting it, and will no doubt be buying the game for 3DS, I am severely disappointed US/EU players do not get online service for it - as we're very spread out across our nations.

Any chance I could transfer my MH3 data from my Wii onto a WiiU and continue playing with my same character? Or will I need to start the game again?

Oh hell yea! Might pick up both, the Wii U version for one of my first Wii U games and the 3DS version to well, need I explain.

Maybe we'll see a circle pad pro and/or Wii U pro bundle.
