Capcom revealed some of its post-launch plans Thursday for “Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate” on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The action role-playing game will get a patch after the game’s release that enables additional functionality for the home console while also receiving free DLC quests on both the console and handheld.
“The software update will add online cross-region functionality, allowing European and North American gamers to play together online in up to four-player battles,” Capcom explained in a press release. “Monster Hunters will also be able to play the game using just the Wii U GamePad without the need for a TV screen as the software update makes the title compatible with off-TV play.”
Both the addition of cross-region multiplayer functionality and the off-TV play with the Wii U GamePad were hotly requested items from fans of the “Monster Hunter” series.
Meanwhile, Capcom community manager Yuri revealed that “Monster Hunter Ultimate” will receive free DLC quests “almost every week” starting at the game’s launch on April 20 in North America and April 23 for Europe. This will be for both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the title.
