Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate patch removing NA/Europe multiplayer region lock in April

Capcom will patch the Wii U version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate in April to unlock cross-region play between gamers in North America and Europe, the company announced today.

The decision was made "in response to community feedback," said Capcom in a press release announcing the title update. Capcom previously said Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate's multiplayer servers would be region-locked, a decision that drew a harsh outcry from Monster Hunter fans.

The patch will also enable off-TV play on the GamePad.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate launches March 19 in North America and March 22 in Europe on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Demos for both versions are available now in the Nintendo eShop. For more details, check out our preview from New York Comic Con.
