Out Today: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

Join the hunt

Today marks the European launch of one of the year's biggest games: Capcom's Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U and 3DS.

The latest instalment in the long-running franchise which has taken its Japanese homeland by a storm, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate pits you against a wide variety of bloodthirsty beasts, each of which requires a different strategy to defeat. With co-op play and a massive selection of weapons and items to collect, the game boasts an almost limitless amount of play time — and the best thing is, it's an experience which is exclusive to Nintendo platforms.

We've already played and assessed both versions, so be sure to check out our Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U review and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate 3DS review before deciding which one to buy. "Those that missed Monster Hunter Tri but like the concept should pick this up without delay," we said in our review of the home console edition. "Those that enjoyed the original should also do the same — the quest is practically never-ending, and that's absolutely fine by us."
