Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate looks better than ever in 1080p on Wii U

New, 3 comments

Capcom released new screenshots of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the Wii U today, showing what the updated version of action-RPG Monster Hunter 3 will look like running at 1080p resolution on Nintendo's next-generation console.

While the Wii U version of Monster Hunter 3 looks rich and colorful in the new screens, the game's legacy assets make it perfectly clear that we're looking at an updated port of a current generation console game. Check them out in the full gallery for a better look.

The technical wizardry of the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS interactivity may make players overlook any visual shortcomings; up to four players can play Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate together using local wireless play on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, using either four Nintendo 3DSs or one Wii U and three Nintendo 3DSs.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is coming to Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in North America in March 2013. In Japan, the game will be released this December alongside the launch of the Wii U.
