Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate demo launching Feb. 21, Wii U version will support voice chat

A demo for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will launch on both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U on Feb. 21, a little under a month before the full game is released, Capcom announced today.

The full game, which launches March 19 in North America on both platforms, will feature voice chat on the Wii U, utilizing the GamePad's built-in microphone. Using this, players can chat with their fellow hunters online; the press release announcing this functionality did not mention voice chat for the 3DS version of the title, however.

Check out the latest screenshots for both versions of the game above, and the intro to the Wii U version in the video posted below.
