Wii U owning Monster Hunter fans have been deeply emerged in the demo for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate over the past week and while the majority of players are enjoying the game, this doesn’t mean there hasn’t been an outpouring of concern over the quality of the final product.
A big part of this concern stems from two glaring omissions: The first being the inability to play the game with gamers from other regions. While the other is the fact the game fails to take advantage of the Wii U’s Off-TV play feature, which is weird considering it’s one of the console’s main selling points.
Well, the folks at Capcom have announced
that they have listened to the demand for these features and will patch them into the final product because, “it made sense ;)” Although, it won’t be arriving until a few weeks after launch.
This (free) patch will merge both the North American and European servers, to allow players from both continents to enjoy the hunt together. Oh and of course it will also allow them to play the game exclusively on their GamePad.
Coincidentally, Capcom has also said fans can expect to see a stream of free post-launch DLC quests, with the release dates to be revealed sometime in the near future.
The patch will be available for download at some point in April, while the full version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will grace store shelves for the Wii U and 3DS on March 19 or March 22 if you happen to live in Europe.
