Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U and 3DS explored in New York Comic Con trailer

Capcom is showing Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate at New York Comic Con this week, the first time the Wii U version of the game will be playable by the public in North America. But if you can't make it to NYCC, the newest trailer for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS version of Monster Hunter 3 will have to suffice.

New video footage of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate shows what the Wii U version can look like running at 1080p resolution. Capcom recently released 1080p quality screenshots of the Wii U version for more careful study. The trailer also highlights some of the Wii U-Nintendo 3DS interactivity; the game lets players play across those two platforms over local wireless connections and allows players of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate to transfer their save files from Wii U to 3DS and vice versa.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be playable in the Monster Hunter room at New York Comic Con in room B101 of the convention hall. Free play sessions are planned throughout the weekend, with a tournament scheduled for Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Monter Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS comes to North America and Europe in March 2013.
