The flow of Wii U games may have slowed to a trickle over the past two months, but things are starting to pick up. Capcom's Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is easily one of the biggest titles of March, and it is scheduled for release in North America today, March 19th, and in Europe on Friday, March 22nd.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Ultimate, it is an enhanced version of the Wii exclusive Monster Hunter Tri. Here's an official description from a recent press release:
Take up arms and venture into a world of spectacular surroundings and challenging monsters in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. With all-new monsters, equipment and weapons and over 200 action-packed quests to tackle, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is the most expansive game in the series to date. In this action RPG, take more than just satisfaction from your hard-fought victories: carve conquered monsters to gain their bones, horns, hides and more, then have them fashioned into weapons and armour to steel you for the even tougher battles ahead. It is the hunter's way.
IGN has posted their video review of the game, and in spite of a few shortcomings, they are impressed. Video after the break.
