Get ready for battle!

As a special pre-Christmas treat, Capcom has released a series of three gameplay videos via its community blog for the upcoming Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U. The videos contain battles with three brand new beasties; the Lagombi, Zinogre and Brachydios, with all three battles taking place on very different terrains. The Wii U version of the game will work with the 3DS edition, enabling players to transfer save data between the two systems.

Check out the following videos below, but don't forget to select HD to witness the full 1080p resolution in all its glory.
