Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is the expanded remake of Monster Hunter Tri that’s already out in Japan on both the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. Today, Capcom announced that international gamers will be able to dive into the world of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the Wii U and 3DS on March 19th, 2013 in North America and March 22nd in Europe.

There’s a little crossplay action to be had between the two versions of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, so we’ll let this line from Capcom’s email blast describe the details so as not to mince words:

The game can be played alone, online (up to four players) on the Wii U system, or locally using up to four Nintendo 3DS systems or a combination of up to three Nintendo 3DS systems and one Wii U system.

The Monster Hunter series is decently successful internationally, but commands an absurd amount of critical acclaim and commercial success in Japan. Monster Hunter Tri, the original version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, actually scored a 40 out of 40 in Famitsu magazine; that’s only the 11th time in the publications 20+ year history that a game has earned a perfect rating.

Will you be picking this one up? If so, which platform will you buy it for?
