Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is coming to Wii U and 3DS next March, Nintendo announced today.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is coming to Wii U and 3DS next March, Nintendo announced today at its Wii U preview event.

Capcom's game will be known as Monster Hunter Tri G HD Ver. in Japan. It will support online multiplayer and local co-op, and players who own both the Wii U and 3DS versions will be able to make progress in them simultaneously. The touchscreen of both platforms will let players peruse books, and navigate maps and menus. New mini-games will be playable on the touchscreen as well.

3DS players will be able to exchange Guild Cards with other players using the StreetPass feature, and can participate in local wireless co-op. 3DS and Wii U players can even play co-op together with local wireless play, and transfer saves between the two platforms.

Keep up with the rest of our Wii U coverage here.

Update: Nintendo has released an image of what your Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate setup might look like, where the GamePad is used as a second information screen and all the controls are handled by the Pro Controller, as seen above. An announcement video from Capcom is available below.
