Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U title update bringing off-screen play April 15

A title update for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate announced earlier this year will be released April 15 in North America, according to a post on Capcom Unity.

The title update will bring off-screen play to the Wii U, allowing gameplay on the tablet-like GamePad alone, as well as matchmaking between U.S. and European players. The update will go live April 15 at 8 p.m. ET.

Capcom revealed the patch in late February, saying it was created "in response to community feedback." For more on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, a game that is "fueled by patience," be sure to check out Polygon's review.
