Capcom has released the first Wii U trailer of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. The trailer includes gameplay footage, and we have to say, it’s looking pretty good, with lots of different and lush environments showcased. It also showcases the Wii U and 3DS cross-play feature. Mosnter Hunter 3 Ultimate will be released in March 2013, exclusively for the Wii U and 3DS. Players will be able to import and share their save games between the two platforms, and play together on the Wii U console. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will run in 1080p on Nintendo’s new console. For more media, check out some of the recent screenshots of the game.

  • Nintenlord

    capcom should release the 3ds version earlier so we can prepare for the wiiu version

    • XBox 360

      Wow they made runescape for the wii u what a bunch of noobs

      • Nintenlord

        Envy and butthurt in a small package

        • Nintenlord

          MH3U is playable in NYCC go now if you can

      • Amherst

        You’re trying too hard.

      • SideScreamer

        I didn’t think anyone remembered what Runescape was.

        And saying that, is like saying; ‘Oh no, Call of Duty copied Halo by making it a first person shooter’.

        • Melk

          Wouldn’t ‘Oh no, Call of Duty copied Wolfenstein by making it a first person shooter’ be a better sarcasm?

          Kids nowadays and their Halo with their angels and shit…

        • XBox 360

          Side screamer you don’t know what your saying so be quiet.

          • Matthewmc685

            XBox 360 you’re funny and not because you lack the information that even if you where using a name like that and was a fan of Nintendo would still get hate mail but because your comments make it look like you hit the keyboard and it only used English words by shear luck.

          • Nintenlord

            I though the xbox just scratches the games but it also burns brains

          • Roedburn

            Xbox fanboys never know what their talking about, so you should be quiet and go back to living in your hole in shame.

          • nintendofreak

            wat is runescape?

          • theBALLANCEDopinion

            Listen here! You better…….never mind. Its not worth it. Peace.

          • NavyBlueYoshi

            What’s this halo you speak of?

          • The Plague

            Halo= about the only successful XBox exclusive franchise. Oh and it sucks unless you are 8 and suck at games, then it is fantastic.

      • Bob

        Wow… you actually bought a Kinect? Isn’t that for kids?

      • 7upland

        i agree and thumbed up

      • NightºƒCore

        Wow they made runescape for the Wii U, the only differences are a. Its graphics are better b. its gameplay is better c. its completely different. Wow just like runescape e.e

        • nintendofreak

          wat d hell is runescape never played it?

          • NightºƒCore

            Neither have i :/ i always thought of it as a crap, slow paced, Online flashy thing. http://www.runescape.com/ . I’ve also never been able to pronounce it, I dunno whether it’s “Rune Scape” or “Run Escape”. Both sound retardedly gay though lolz

          • NINTENDOCOOL

            just ignore it. lol trust me i wasted too much life on that. my seller gives me the best kind…or are you guys referring to the game? :O

          • NightºƒCore

            @NINTENDOCOOL I was talking about both :/


        Lol. I like the comment. You guys realize this comment is here to make you laugh right?

      • anus

        ..i laughed

    • nintendos4kidz

      That is the maximum the wii u is capable of because the console ist weaker than my pocket calculator

  • Mida


  • Keath

    Wasnt to sure about the screenshots but this right her looks sexy. probably pick this bad boy up.

  • makaresh

    just another facelift…

  • Troll patrol.

    Monster Hunter is TP’s favorite game!!! Know why ??? Cus monsters are trolls think about it !!! They waltz around thinking their tough grazing and what not , until TP walks over and lays The troll down on their ass .

    MH Ultimate Troll Patrol .

    • NesToWiiU

      I saw you slacking off on the trolls all this week so don’t try to hide it. Don’t make me fire you! (Yes I’m your boss.)

      • Troll patrol.

        Okay , but please don’t expose that to everyone on this site , just let me do my job .

        *eats a doughnut and speeds off in pa-troll mobile*

    • CarsONLementi

      Your grammar is oddly similar to Nintedward’s… hmm…

      • SideScreamer

        Glad to see I wasn’t the only one who noticed.

      • Marq

        Considering how much free time Nintedward seems to have, it would only make sense.

  • RSBzero

    Over 500 hrs on Tri, f$€% yea, can’t wait for 500 more on Ultimate

    • Death47

      Get ready for 1000, lol.

  • burnannator

    first AND CALLED

    • theBALLANCEDopinion

      blue shell AND SHUT THE HELL UP

      • theBALLANCEDolphin

        all nintendo need to get now is atlus on board so we can get persona series also

        • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

          Well, persona is a sub game of the Shin Megami Tensei series and we have devil survivor 1 and 2 on the DS, a remake of 1 on the 3DS and the fourth installment in the main Shin Megami Tensei series is gonna be a 3DS exclusive too. So we already do have support from them for our systems. It may not be persona, but these are some good games. And after the Wii U picks up, we’ll probably get some support there from them too. Should be good, whether or not persona

    • NightºƒCore

      haha you didn’t even make it to first. TROLL PATROLL!

    • SteampunkJedi

      On this site, I’ve noticed that if you turn out to be first and have at least a relatively good comment, then you get highly rated. If you “claim” first, then most people hate you whether you are first or not. Logical solution: Don’t textually claim first comment!!!!!!!!

  • Jetty

    *crossed fingers* RE6 on Wii U….

    • BloopbopBeepbop

      I HIGHLY doubt it but i guess you can keep the hope alive.

    • Melk

      But…Resident Evil 6 sucked, why would you want that game on our precious machine? :c

      Unless Nintendo does what they’re doing with Ninja Gayden: RE…which is not needed >_>

    • revolution5268

      no offense but that game is garbage.

    • Richard

      If they do, they should make a duo pack with RE5 and 6

    • Jetty

      Lol no love for 6? Sure it ruined Mercenaries and Jav’o are the worst designed enemies in Capcom. Leon’s campaign alone is worth sixty bucks. 6 has it’s michael bay moments but does have good ones. Like Leon chapter 4, the Pink Floyd the Wall reference. Epic.

  • Klenk

    Where do I preorder?? I’m definetlly getting this

  • kingtendo

    look’s pretty cool,i just dont think i will be purchasing this for the fearless come release.
    and to all of you who are crying about graphic’s,CHILL OUT……nintendo know’s how to make fun game’s.


    • Cugno the Swiss

      Is every single one of your comments just a stupid excuse to use the word “fearless”???

      • NightºƒCore

        It didn’t even make sense lolz. And the graphics look rad enough 2 me. Never played the Wii MH3.

      • mojojojo888

        I ‘fear’ for the degrading level of intelligence amongst the human species…

        • NightºƒCore

          Sometimes i feel embarrassed to say I’m a Homosapien to my Elf and Demon friends…

  • Troll patrol.

    I am really happy we Nintendo Gamers are being gifted one of the most ”hardcore” and long lasting games available. It’s excellent , it merits buying a wiiu just to spend 500 hours + playing this game !!. Tri was a masterpiece except lacking in content a bit , this adds like 90% extra content !! Instant masterpiece .

    • theBALLANCEDolphin

      Why you not giving kingtendo a ticket for misusing the nintendo name?

  • Major Beauner


    • U Turn

      Technofilia is just plan wrong, bet your current sexbox is jealous her name is Sonya Pleystasioana. FREEEEEEEEK!

    • makaresh

      don´t make your body responsible if anything breaks :p

  • DarkLugia

    Good to see that the Monster Hunter 3G flagship dragon will be in this version, I wasn’t very happy when it didn’t get localized for anywhere outside of Japan on the 3DS. Oh well, I still have the original MH3 to keep me content until this comes out next year… 😛 (Although I’m sure Black Ops 2 will also help with the wait!)

    • NightºƒCore

      Y-y-you! You’re using the name I used back when I had my Chu-2 byou syndrome!!!

  • Ledreppe

    Looks amazing, but I found the Wii one too difficult.

    • Kyron

      Dude, its a game. Its supposed to be difficult.

      • makaresh

        most games nowadays are supposed to be easy. that´s why “gamers” complain if they see any game which is not to master in 2 hours and one rush

      • Melk

        It is?

    • Death47

      That’s the point.

      • Death47

        This one is twice as difficult (maybe more) because of the inclusion of G rank. That’s higher than high rank.



  • LogicalDude

    Now THAT is looking mighty fine. I shall need new pants if they upgrade the graphics on Xenoblade Chronicles as much as they did this game.

    • Axe

      Noooooooooooooo. I do not want to see a port of Xenoblade in HD. I want to see Monolith pull out their next gem. Paying again for the same game with better resolution always seems pointless to me. Even if they add a couple gamepad gimmicks.

      • Kyron

        I want Xenoblade Chronicles 2!!! The true sequel, released here at the same time as the Japan release!

        • Cugno the Swiss

          I’m satisfied with Xenoblade’s ending, I want a whole new game by Monolith! Look at Tales of Symphonia, the ending was perfect, and then Martha and Emil came… Symphonia 2 is by no means a bad game, but the first one had a perfect ending! Everything was right, we didn’t need the main character to become a killer all of a sudden in the second one!

          • Kyron

            True true. Makes complete sense. Its just that…I love the characters of Xenoblade. I don’t wanna see them go that fast. Besides, what console game do you know that is as different as that game? Even the title screen is just breathtaking…

      • Melk

        Eh, we ARE getting a new Monolith game, chill out…

        Not to mention you don’t need to buy the HD version of Xenoblade if you don’t want to…but, just so you know, Xenoblade Chronicles would look really blurry in a 1080p TV…

        • EponaVsCrimsonLoftwing

          My parents got a deal on a 1080p 28″ or something like that for my dormroom… I can’t freakin play the game. It’s a major eye strain. I squinted so much I couldn’t see straight for the rest of the night. Might also be because I played for 6 hours despite the issues with the visuals 😛

          • LogicalDude

            I’ll be honest, I just play it on a 32″ CRT at the lowest resolution as we keep the Wii in the bedroom. I USED to have a setup with a 46″ TV at the foot of my bed which was my computer monitor as well but unfortunately, Xenoblade Chronicles wasn’t out then. Try watching some of the upscaled videos on YouTube, doesn’t look that bad.

  • Andrew Sheehan

    Epic Trailer

  • kingtendo

    Fearless is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. Fearless is falling madly in love with nintendo agin, But no matter what nintendo throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in Mario and Zelda, Nintendo is FEARLESS.

    • theBALLANCEDolphin

      Stop saying fearless its nintendo wii u you are annoying the crap out of people!

    • NightºƒCore

      Uhm, dude, can you quit it with the “Fearless” thing already?


      lol i have no idea what you’re talking about but reading it made me laugh. It sounds really dramatic. You should be a motivational speaker lol

  • TheBrainJemin

    That was Epic!


    never liked the first one but this looks interesting

    • Kyron

      You must’ve not liked the first cause of the graphics because its basically the same game.

      • Death47

        UH, it has about 50% more content…


          I’d say even more than that even…I think people are not getting that this isn’t just a graphical remake. The main part of it is all of the new content. I really don’t even care what the graphics look like. I’m getting it for the content…

  • zuxs

    At first this didnt look much better than metroid prime or xenogears (except it was clearer resolution) but ones they showed the water scenes and the water effects it definitely shines. Looks great.

    • Melk

      Da fuq? Xenogears?

      • Kyron

        He probably meant Xenoblade

  • jman4102

    this game is going to be a prime example of what nintendo has been saying all along its not about graphics its about gameplay
    so awesome!!!

  • dubYA



    I’m sorry but the graphics are terrible.

    • Nintendo Power (Chuck Norris)

      Are you watching it in 240p?

    • Noteak

      They probably had to dumb it down for the purpose of playing online with a 3DS person.


        …Uhhh the 3ds version has no online play in any way shape or form. Just sayin. The wii u is the only version that has online.

    • Troll patrol.

      Its an enhanced wii game , what do you expect crysis 3 dx12 edition ?? noob.

      The game looks BEAUTIFUL on the wii with spanning vista’s and landscapes , now we get that in Full HD with 3ds connectivity . You can hook the 3ds up to the wiiu!!! .

      This game will separate the men (true gamers) from the boys (graphic whores)

      • totesawks

        Sorry, I agree with Naysayer. It’s truly bland. They could’ve put a lot more effort into this

        • :O

          You’re bland. 😛

    • Wesker

      duh,cuz this is just an HD remastered version of the 3DS one …

    • srpg2ishere

      First of all the graphics depend on the resolution the uploader put it in (are you watching thid at 240 or something?) And secondly what part of 1080p hd.you dont understand. I mean seriously. I hate when people sign up on a website just so they can dis all the products and insult people for the hell of it. You can just keep talkin about how “horrible” the game looks but watch when this rools out and us nintendo wii u owners will be playing this on our hd televisions. Idiot

    • Melk

      I’m sorry but your mom is terrible.

      *Ba dum, tsss!*

    • NightºƒCore

      Graphics look rad enough to me. Sorry it doesn’t meet your COD: MW3 graphics’ expectations

      • Super Paper Rye

        ….COD graphics aren’t even HD. I checked up online and they play in 480p. The leader of Activision even said it.

  • Axe

    I know I’ll get a lot of hate for this, but what is so great about Monster Hunter, anyway? The game looks absolutely gorgeous, but the controls and menus completely break it for me… Which is sad, because I’m sure I would like it if they just added a targeting system and smoother movement.

    • Troll patrol.

      A targeting system has been added to MHU , and there is nothing wrong with the UI .

      • Axe

        That one is my personal opinion. I’m just not a fan of it. I don’t know, I want to like this game, but I just can’t.

        • Melk

          You’re the first person I’ve seen complaining about the controls, just so you know.

      • Death47

        No. The targeting system….. If there is one (which I HIGHLY doubt), I won’t use it. It just won’t be true hunting anymore.

        @AXE Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it. It’s actually quite simple.

        • nintendofreak

          why do u need targeting for? the monster are friqquing huge

        • Axe

          Don`t knock it til you try it? That’s exactly what I’ve done. I played the first and didn’t like it. I kept hearing my friends talk about the third so I tried it, pushed myself to play it for about 20 hours and I just plain didn’t like it. I’m sorry, but it’s just not the game for me.


      Play it. It cannot be described in under a million words. There’s like more than a million things in it.

      • Axe

        I have played it. Why would I mention the controls if I haven’t?

        • Death47

          Try using the classic controller pro.


          Yeah, what controls are you using? All I know is i didn’t dare play with remote and nunchuck. I used classic pro all the way. And honestly, I’m not like converting you or anything. It may not be the game for you. If its cuz of the controls i don’t see why u wouldnt like it though…just dont use remote and nunchuck.

  • DragonChi

    well……I’m sold..

  • ssb4 FC3007 8585 6950

    Nice graphics!

  • Noteak

    This game looks Beast!

  • albino donkey

    why do they always show the European rating?

    • Melk

      PEGI: Because SHUT UP!
      ESRB: ._.

  • insert name

    I cant wait for this game , i want it so bad for the 3ds . and wii u if the online it’s worldwide and not regional like in the wii .

  • Lusunup

    My actually reaction was :O …..HOLY SHIT!

  • RoboticLink

    I… I think I’m in love.

  • Nintendo Power (Chuck Norris)

    That is one awesome graphics. Now I need to get a black 3DS XL, my other 3DS Broke 🙁 🙁 🙁

  • Garzard

    MY body is *head explodes*

  • RoboticLink

    Hey, can someone help me, PLEASE! I would really love to know how to change that little picture beside my name, but I don’t know how to. (someone already told me it was with gravatar. But what’s that?)

    • NightºƒCore

      No idea. Been wondering myself. I wish you could link your username from WiiUForums here, but what can be done 😐

  • Maverick-Hunter

    Wow capcom this remake makes up or the lack of MEGAMANand yes I was one of those people who spent hundreds of hours playing this game 🙂 this is how online is suppose to be used rather than freaking FPS shooter.

    • Melk

      “This remake makes up for the lack of MEGAMAN”
      “Makes up for the lack of MEGAMAN”

      NO IT DOESN’T!

      • Death47

        Monster hunter is Much better than megaman IMO. MH is like their flagship series.

      • Maverick-Hunter

        it totally does I mean this game is soooooo good that it will hold me off until the next megaman game *prays* dear god please don’t let capcom make another god damn megaman nt warrior game they really SUCK ps god I want a MEGAMAN game not a zero themed game with megaman in it.

        anyway sword n shield is the best weapon combo in monster hunter with gun being a close second 🙂 thats just my personal opinion I could be wrong

  • LazerK

    OH MY GOD….
    Ive never played Monster Hunter before.But this…this epic trailer…has made me realize that I HAVE TO HAVE IT!!! November 18,can’t you come any sooner?

    • Kyron

      You’ll have to wait a lil’ longer for this game bro.


      Not out until march 2013 🙁

  • TheUNation

    March 2013, here Wii come… we’re coming for U!!!!!!!

  • Ted

    The one problem this series has is combat control. I have faith Nintendo leveraged a fix and am looking forward to spending many hours in this game.

    • NightºƒCore

      They did lolz

  • WideAwake

    Noticed the online players were all named player 1, player 2… so on. Could be just for the trailer? or are accounts/usernames still on the table?

    • Death47

      They had usernames in the wii Version so there will be usernames in the wii u one.

    • Melk

      They didn’t wanted to use names, as simple as that.

  • sehxualpanda

    I don’t know who this Peggy 12 is, but i’d tap that

  • SteampunkJedi

    That was an epic trailer. This game looks pretty awesome now.

  • Elite


    • NightºƒCore

      We aren’t interested in whats in your pants, let alone the size of it

  • Master Awesomeness

    Not so shit after all…

  • Visitor

    Every time graphics looked better Wii U ver text was missing

  • johny

    jizz in my pants!

  • PKUltima

    Anybody wanna play this with me when it comes out? It looks freaking amazing!

    • YellowLink95

      I will.

    • Kyron

      Count me in too.

  • makaresh

    i wonder where the developers hide all the “great possibilities” of this console… this doesn´t look really better than any wii title (and yes i saw that the resolution is higher than the one from wii…)

  • Death47

    Btw, this trailer is from NY Comic con (about 2 or 3 days old). I’m sorry to say that you guys don’t update your site enough. Instead, you put all this info about what analysts are saying. Get up to date.

  • jcb411abuser

    i love monster hunter, but don’t see the point in getting this after already playing tri, come on everybody, capcom haven’t changed the game engine in this game since the original, it’s time we stopped rewarding them for being so lazy.

    this is a dig at capcom, the wiiu has so much potential to create an awesome monster hunter experience but once again capcom fall short of it’s potential.

  • nintendoododo

    graphics are shit. nintendo i hate you.

    • Melk

      Cool story sis!

    • NightºƒCore

      Then WTF is a Nintendo-Hater doing on a Nintendo product website? FO man

    • Maverick-Hunter

      yeah nintendo graphics suck ummm thats why the wii u’s graphics are > ps3/360

  • Melk

    Uh, has anyone noticed that Capcom only games are released when they partner up with Nintendo?

    Compare Resident Evil 6 to Revelaitons (YES, LAITONS)
    Compare Monster Hunter PS3’s “release” to Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate’s.
    Compare Megaman x1/2/3 to Megaman 4/5/SIX!!

    Like, seriously…

  • loltume

    they could grisp up the graphics and textures more now it looks like a full hd monster hunter tri (the original) but it looks ok now but i hope they will polish the graphics more. dont get me wrong i loved the first game (graphically it was a masterpiece for the wii). played it to death (350 h in :DD) but hey this game wasnt meant to be the graphical demonstration for the whole console. im 100 % sure that ps3 had the same caliber graphics in the launch games and im also sure that ps4’s hardware isnt going to be tapped at the launch also. i think this game uses only 3% of wii u’s true hardware power. but im going to get this game hands down 😀

  • Volcano

    Ive never played the wii version so if i hav the chance i will get it

  • Smokey cheese

    Looks pretty good. I didn’t play the original on the Wii as I was paying through some other games at its time of release. As an owner of a PS3 I’m more than familiour with HD remakes and this game seems to be a decent effort. Do not own a 3DS but think its a great idea. As for the toolbar that called the creators of Megaman,StreetFIghter and Resident Evil a Noob well that’s original.

  • nintendofreak

    i just hope dey added a hell lot of more monsters or some monster from de older ones came back or something

  • nintendofreak

    looks even more badass dan i expected……………..i need a job like now

  • Shane

    Cool. I’ll probably get it, I like the whole customization thing, crossplatform, and 3DS modes. I wish they would have spent at least another year to get better graphics in the game, but they might just be trying to look seemless between, the Wii U and 3DS, and get it out sooner. MH4 better come out for Wii U in U.S. otherwise I’m gonna hate Capcom for teasing us with the prequel. I have money, and I want that game(which costs money)!

  • SavingUpForTheWiiU

    Seems nice. I never played the one on the wii, but because of what seems to be nice frame rates, excellent graphics and lots of graphics… I’ll get this when it comes out.
    Plus, its an MMO! Who doesn’t love MMOS?

  • SonGokuSsJ4

    OH MY GOD I can’t wait for this game I’m love it!!!!!!!!!!

  • Captain Potato

    There is NO reason or excuse as to why the graphics don’t reflect the cut-scenes! Poor work Capcom! You deserve a Razzie award!
