            A winner is you.


    those are the screenshots from the original wii game.
    the wii version had nice graphics for the system but think about the wii u version. the console is about 40x powerful than the original wii and 20x powerful compared to the ps3. think about how nice the visuals would look in this version and the gameplay is going to be awesome too

      I’m excited about this game too, but you have no idea what you’re talking about do you? First of all, the WiiU isn’t anywhere close to being 40x stronger, it honestly isn’t even that much stronger than the Ps3, not trolling, just looking at the facts. Plus even if it was, this is a Capcom port, of a 3ds game. Monster Hunter at that! A game that has never been know for its amazing graphics. I’m thinking they will up scale it to the new resolution, clean up the textures a bit, and add some new lighting and other effects. I haven’t seen the game in person, but I already know it isn’t going to look much better than Tri.

        Dude, it is way more powerful than the ps3 and Xbox 360. You can’t compare a console which has not yet been released to a console which had already released. But you can compare Xbox 720 and ps 4 to wii u

        • Lancer

          I can compare them if I want, I mean they’re all video game systems. And the specs of the WiiU have been released for awhile now, you can straight up compare the specs of it to the specs of the other systems, and while being better they sure aren’t ground breaking. All of the is besides the point though, this game simply isn’t going to look as good as other WiiU games, no matter how much you and I want it to. I hope I’ll be proved wrong but I really don’t think I will.

          • Nice Try

            no they haven’t been released. There is a difference between actual specs and rumored specs. Nice try though!

          • noah

            You already have. Look up the specs. It’s not as much hardware power as it is placement of the chipset. it is much more powerful.

      • wii u is stronger then ps3 and xbox 360 DEAL WITH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • i think i was like 50% better graphics than both of 360 and ps3, go and check in out on youtube they have pretty good videos that they compare the graphics between them and it is a pretty big difference…

  • BU

    Ooooo yeahhhh
    ..this is the first reason why i will buy this console.i am a BIG fan of Mh series…so a new mh will keep me at least 200hours out of my routine.i hope it will be awsome.LOVE MH 🙂

  • Robert

    nice, But i’m wondering on which system is better; 3DS or Wii U??

    • kyuubikid213

      The ideal thing to do would be to get it on both systems. There is a feature where you can pick up where you left off on the 3DS if you get the Wii U and 3DS versions. Also, the 3DS version won’t have online while the Wii U version will.
