Capcom Talk MH3U & Additonal Wii U Support [UPDATED]

Capcom have so far announced one Wii U title, one huge Wii U title. Additional support has now been confirmed…


Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

  • Once again, no online for 3DS version
  • Tri servers will be shut down eventually
  • Didn\’t want to shut them down until players could move onto a new game
  • Most likely will not be able to transfer Wii save to 3DS or Wii U
  • Uses Nintendo’s servers for online
  • Not sure on regional servers yet
  • Capcom USA waiting on Wii U builds to play
  • No word on transferring Japanese 3DS save to the NA 3DS build
  • Highly unlikely that 3DS will get online
  • Shouldn\’t be any differences in content between the two games
  • Subtle differences in feature set of Ultimate from the original Japan release of 3G
  • No official bundles in states
  • May feature soft bundle purchase option within the Capcom Store

“No, we don’t enjoy seeing you suffer… Localization is just one of those things that takes time and a lot of strategy. For one, it’s not just translation. Plus, we wanted to deliver a title that had full online multiplayer integration (Wii U), and that took a lot more development. But now we can offer you MH3U on the Wii U, with HD graphics, online, save-sharing with the 3DS version… that’s all awesome stuff – but it all takes time.” Araujo

Additional Wii U Support

“For now, that’s what we’ve announced (for Wii U). Yes. And there are many thousands of people who are thrilled with the announcement of what is our our currently largest brand (Monster Hunter) coming to Nintendo’s existing portable and new console platform. The significance of that should not be underestimated.” – Christian Svensson

So Christian Svensson says the \”significance\” of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate should not be under estimated. It’s certainly excited to see Capcom putting their largest brand on the Wii U. I can\’t help but think…. Just give me Resident Evil 6! TGS starts this week, could we perhaps hear of some new announcements?



Christian Svensson has decicded to give Nintendo gamers a little more info with regards to what Capcom have in store for the Wii U…

“I have to be careful what I say here as it will surely be overanalyzed and misinterpreted to be more than what I’m saying.

“We have other projects in the works beyond MH3 Ultimate. Unfortunately at this time I can not provide any details. I’m sure as someone who is interested in Wii U and a member, you won’t be able to miss news of future projects when they finally do get announced.”
