Capcom has released a new batch of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U screenshots. It was recently confirmed that the game will run at 1080p on the Wii U. Capcom is bringing Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, where players will be able to share save games between the systems, and even play together with a new cross-play feature. The game is an update from the original Monster Hunter 3 on the Wii, and features improved visuals, new content, new controls, and more. The game will be released in March 2013, exclusively on the Wii U and 3DS.

For more on the game, check out the first Wii U trailer, and some of the other screenshots.

    • Einstein

      i think this would look better on the xbox. the xbox gpu is much better.

      also, the xbox 720 might have a touchscreen controller. IM SO EXCITED

      • Nintenlord

        Psycologist: sir wen was the time you started to think microsoft care what you want?

        • Nintenlord

          Also there is a monster hunter for xbox on japan you can import it if you realy care

      • Gamer

        Games like this are only natural on the Nintendo and Sony platforms. xbox line feels unnatural like driving a ford taurus and thinking it’s a reliable vehicle.

      • Nintedward.

        Haha the wiiu has a much much much better GPU than 360 lol . What are you smoking and where do we all score some ?

        360 is good yes . Wiiu is next gen and better . Hope the 720 is good for you and your kind.

      • BananaPwnz

        With a username called Einstein you’re not very smart, the gpu on Wii u is more advanced on the Wii u, and if the Xbox has a touchscreen controller, that would be called copying, and that would be playing a Sony, with their play station move.

      • TheLibyan

        no offense, but the xbox is literally going to be the weakest console when the Wii U comes out. And besides that, this game’s textures are just being stretched to 1080p so it would look the same regardless. And if the Xbox 720 DID come with a touch screen…sorry but it would suck. Only Nintendo can make these types of things work and when other companies copy, their models suck (like PsMove).

        • Chris

          Actually (And I know I’m going to get loads of thumbs down for this), the Playstation Move was in development in 2001 which was way before Nintendo announced and started developing the Wii.

          Sony only came out with the Move because they thought motion controlled gaming would be the thing and so they picked up the project again and released.

          To be honest, the Move was actually really good, its just Sony pushed it into the market way too early.

          • Nintenlord

            Source, kid i never saw any publication about it and i fallow all consoles like flyes to shit

          • nintendofreak

            but still the wii controllers are more responsive dan d move n by a hell lot

      • Chris

        So you are excited for a console that has a HD 6670 which can hardly beat the Wii U’s GPU and hasn’t been announced yet?

        So tell me… have you ever tried to play a game on full high settings the DX11 on with a HD 6670? Because I can tell you… it was like a slide show.

      • Nko Sekirei

        ur so stupid wii u is 50 percent more powerful then xbox 360 and ps3.Ur logic on ur comment tells us u dont read articles or facts do us all a favor and go bang a cactus and u feel how prickly after u bang a cactus

      • Michael Pachter

        Einstein would slap you if he were alive.

      • nintendofreak

        sorry to be the rain on ur parade but ( well not so sorry) wii u exclusive if the game actually is not an exclusive or something happens it would go to d ps3 or ps4, second dat i knw off dere isnt a single monster hunter on xbox history, n third if the xbox 720 had a touchscreen nintendo would sue microsoft cuz ( nintendo patented every aspect of the conrol + console so wat happened with move n kinect cant happen again) and bye bye microsoft or at least xbox and fourth microsoft doesnt have the capital to make a new console for a while so xbox 720 till 2014 or later + dey already made deir copy cat version known as “smart glass”

  • NintenBro

    I passed up on the first few installmenta of this. Interested to get my hands on this one as a few of my co-workers are online with Tri. I know for a fact they are getting this. It’ll be fun to interact with them and see what has them so hooked.

  • iLikeWeYOU

    went to the Play Expo today, made a video about it, i asked them many questions, and in case you want to know how the wii u felt+how the games played and everything… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgctecP5p90&feature=youtu.be enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Nintedward.

      Hey bro I went too it was awesome wasn’t it ? . (Left you a Facebook message)

      I was planning on making a vid but my phone died before I got there . So all I could get was a few 3ds pics :s .

      Was awesome tho , I spent 3 hours playing wiiu ^_^
      .the reps were like are you still here ? Lmao .

      I got over a hundred street pass hits on 3ds before it ran out because I didn’t charge it properly :(.

      Anyway play expo was absolutely amazing , never seen anything like it .

      There was about 500 retro consoles in endless rows just waiting to be played.

      • Nintedward.

        Anyway guys , the best thing I the gamepad screen!!!! It looks as clear as iPad retina scan , it’s incredible . In some situations the graphics looked better on the gamepad than they did on the TV .

        Rayman legends is outstanding ,NSMBU is awesome coop so is Nintendo land . Everything else was good but kind a bit buggy demo . But still awesome.

        it exceeded my expectations , and once that gamepad his your hands. You realise for the first time in your like that now you are actually playing with power.

        • ssb4 3dsFC3007 8585 6950

          u got dat right!

        • Nintedward.

          Stupid iPad incorrectly correcting my typing :@

          • Smokey cheese

            Gotta say this game is certainly getting me interested .come march it’s going robe a tough choice between this and god of war and so far I’m leaning towards monster hunter

          • Nightยบฦ’Core

            Ahh, you guys are lucky there, wherever u are (Manchester?). We don’t get any good events like this except rAge, which is held in Johannesburg, but I didn’t have the money to go last weekend :,(

          • JumpMan

            holy crap, i know right?! the screen on the gamepad is glorious and it looks AMAZING for dark games like Batman Arkham City: AE and Luigi’s Ghost Mansion (didn’t play ZombiU, too long of a line) and just as good on bright games like Mario Bros U and AC: Sweet Day. and the feel of the controller? most comfortable thing ever to be in my hands!

  • goginho

    Mint looking game ..def gonna be a unique experience, what with the cross-play and all. Wiiiii ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Johny

    OMGOSH.. cant wait

  • SteampunkJedi

    This game looks very good.

  • Nintendo Power (Chuck Norris)

    The graphics are BEAST. (Although…I like gameplay better)

  • Dan

    In other news Sony stock keeps going down!! Best time to buy stocks now, remember Apple stocks?? lol,, I would’nt though, they dont have steve jobs!! Lol

  • bob

    i sincerely hope this game will run at 60 fps in native 1080p.

    • Nintedward.

      It does ! Cap com said in famitsu the game is native 1080p . It’s monster hunter tri but retextured in native 1080p. And obviously cus it runs on a wii engine it will run at 60fps bro ! . The game looks absolutely beautiful.

      And don’t worry this isn’t just upscaled 1080p , cap com confirmed th native part ๐Ÿ™‚ .

  • fedster

    now do u all understand y all us mh fans get pissed when they take forever to make an english version or not make an english version at all?

  • The Wolfen

    I really need this game so badly!

    • 007 1/2

      r u the wolfen from youtube?

  • Wii U Gamer#19

    This game looks beast can’t wait to buy it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Also saw a pop- up ad for Monster Hunter 4 man i hope MH4 comes to Wii U in the near future.

  • Marcel

    Mother of God, it’ s beaultiful.

  • Draco Breach

    I’ve already put money down for my copy of the game ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’ll be watching it, though. I’d like to see if a CE comes along. *long, hard stare at Capcom*

    It really looks like Capcom put a lot of work into the game. They’ve gone back and improved everything. The new texture packs look great, and they’ve really tightened the resolution. I never really got into Tri, and I wasn’t impressed with other system offerings of the game. Part of the problem with this type of game has always been draw distance.

    The Wii U solves the draw distance dilemma. Short of releasing on PC, the Wii U has the best draw distances I’ve seen. I hope Capcom also includes some dynamic AI. Can you imagine if a monster has a hunting pattern but reacts to player movements? It’s something interesting, and it really hasn’t been done.

  • Phases

    Looks pretty nice. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • nintendofreak

    de only thing dat is gonna suck is dat now i have like hundreds of hours to make up…..of course im gonna enjoy it but it will take time to get my stuff back to where it is on d wii

  • Hero Of Time

    Look, all to be fair and such, the only reason people bought PS3 and Xbox 360 (*shiver*) is because of the CoD and Resident Evil. Now Wii U has CoD, a zombie shooter OF ITS OWN, and better versions of other games that WERE ON PS3! If I was a guy at Sony, I would pray, and if I was a guy at Microsoft… I would probably quit while I was ahead of the game (no pun intended).

    P.S. Elder Scrolls in all respect is original, but how about make his prime weapon an axe? We already have a other raced, swordsman at Nintendo, with a few more in stock.

    P.S.S. Don’t be cocky about Metal Gear or Banjo (especially Banjo) because their roots lie in Nintendo history, along with Castlevania and FF.
