Is this going to support Wii Speak? Haha. Just kidding. Would be cool though, because I got that s***! It's a shame Wii Speak was never used. Basically the same tech ended up being in Kinect for voice commands...
This new Monster Hunter looks great in HD, and sounds fantastic in PCM 5.1 Dolby Pro Logic IIx.
I hope we get the 4th one, and that LAN thing.

Actually, there's a day 1 update for Ultimate that's going to allow you to use a microphone/headset thing as well as a USB keyboard. :p

You'll also be able to use the GamePad's mic if you're like me and hate trying to wear headsets.

This just proves people were giving Nintendo crap for no reason when devs weren't using it.

Wish this game was out already. Finished the demo twice on both difficulties.

When playing the Wii U version, I rarely pressed the L button to centre the camera.
I'm used to just using the second stick to rotate it from Tri, and I much prefer to just do it that way.
The L button thing is just handy if I lose track of where the monster is or something.
In the end, it's a useful addition to the game without changing much.

I tried the focus on monster camera setup, but to me it is just a way of helping 3ds users on the go, nothing of added value for a wiiU player.

Focussing on the monster will not take into account where it is going to be, and will disorient you based on the surroundings regardless. This is vital to survival in later stages, so I'll stick to manual control or character center. If you have to look for the monster or need assistance finding it in this game, without the power of anticipating its moves, you're eventually gone for anyways.

I'll try it in water scenes, but I think it's going to be the same story.

I played both the 3DS and the WiiU demo. The camera is horrible. I tried to find an options menu where I could have detailed information about camera types and control layouts, no such luck. Anyone have any tips?

Camera is not that bad once you get used to it, and its actually part of the experience in playing it.
Changing it would be sacrilegious to Monster Hunter players.

Well I found it impossible to aim my bow while charging. Also the enemy was moving a lot, by the time I move the camera so i could see him he was attacking again. I couldn't find a controller layout picture, so I had no idea what the controls did. I am guessing there are buttons and actions more experienced players know from earlier titles that aren't as easy to find in this version.

There's digital instructions that has the controls, though it might be hard to visualize, you can't see it while playing the game...

In the real game you get to do little missions before you actually hunt something big to help you get acclimated with the controls. For someone without having actually played the real versions trying the demo, its tough, controls take time to get use to. You can use the little auto lock on the bottom right of your touch pad, that locks on the big monster and you can just press left shoulder to face the monster, that might help you with the camera issues, but that is a new feature for this version which you can live without with some practice.

Hi All
I'm new to the Monster Hunter thang but I've played the 3ds demo and I have to admit I'm hooked. I'm thinking of getting the Wii U just for the multiplayer questing possibilities. I was wondering, are the multiplayer quests part of the overall campaign or are they independent to the single player game?

I was asking the exact same thing a couple days ago. I'm pretty sure you can have 1 tansferable save file across both, or have 2 seperate ones, and still be able to use the local multiplayer.

Does anyone know if the Japanese version has 2 save files.

It's mostly the same quests.

There are some differences, but that is mostly monster combinations and locales.

That being said, say you're up to the 8* quests in singleplayer and haven't touched the multiplayer, you'll have to start from the HR 1 quests. Also, all your gear and items can be used between both.

Yeah that's not what he was asking actually. Aviator took care of his question! Noob! :P

I guess that means its a seperate menu option. I thought It was a bit like Phantasy Star Online where you could complete the entire single player game with online buddies.

thanks again

Yeah, offline and online work separately, but also together.

Which is really good if your stuck offline. Hope online, grind a monster with 4 people, and you can build awesome armour.

Sorry. Got multiplayer on the mind... I would have been able to answer the question if I read it correctly. It's a good thing to have the single player game identical, and have multiplayer be an option. Getting 1,000,000 headshots in a ranked match to get an achievement/trophy is not fun.

Well technically you really don't need to play offline since the content is almost exactly the same. However at least in tri there was one monster offline you couldn't play online and it was at the very end of the game. Plus you couldn't play jehn offline at all.

Any one know if that's the case this go around. Is ceaduos or whatever his name is online this go around?

You couldn't hunt Jehn, DevilJho or Alatreon offline. And no Ceadus online.

I believe Ultimate has changed this.

Actually he is. It's only the subspecies though and only happens in the HR quests.

And I'm pretty sure there is only 1 monster you can fight online only, which is the new elder dragon.
