Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate producer talks local multiplayer and shared game files

The latest Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate video from Nintendo features game producer Ryozo Tsujimoto demonstrating ways the game can be played on both the Wii U and the 3DS.

In the short video, Tsujimoto shows that the Wii U and 3DS can share the same data saves, which means a player can begin a game on their Wii U and resume it elsewhere on their 3DS. He also runs viewers through local multiplayer, which can be achieved by wirelessly connecting several 3DS handheld consoles with the Wii U.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will release on Wii U and 3DS in March.
