Free online play for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U

Good news, Monster Hunter fans! Capcom has announced during the Nintendo Direct broadcast today that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U will feature free online play! Not only that, but you will also be able to play with people locally on the 3DS version as well. It gets even better than that though.

All of the DLC which released for the 3DS version will be included on the disc for the Wii U version. That’s a lot of free content! Last, but not least, you will not be forced to play with the Gamepad. If you don’t like playing with the Gamepad, you can switch to the Pro controller. However, keep in mind, you will be able to customize your interface with the Gamepad… This isn’t possible with the Pro controller, unfortunately.

You can check out a short gameplay segment from the Nintendo Direct broadcast below.
