Take on the role of a hunter sent to explore a hunter's paradise in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, completing quests on the journey to seek and slay monsters whilst improving skills and earning equipment upgrades. Offering touchscreen functionality for the first time in the series, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate allows players to quickly access in-game books, weapons, field maps and mini games.
Players can experience the world of Monster Hunter alone or in four player local play using Nintendo 3DS. Finding nearby hunters to adventure on quests with is now even easier via the local Nintendo 3DS search feature. Further taking advantage of the portability of Nintendo 3DS, players can exchange their guild card that contains all their hunter's information with other players via StreetPass'. Strike out on a hunt at a friend's house by connecting the Nintendo 3DS to Wii U, allowing players to enjoy the hunt on both systems together via a local wireless connection. Gamers that own both a Wii U and Nintendo 3DS can also take advantage of the inter-compatibility of save data between the two consoles, taking the hunt from the living room wherever they go.
