Things are going to get heated in the eShop

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be released on Wii U and 3DS in North America and Europe on 19th March and 22nd March respectively. The full game is expected to be available in the eShop at around the same time.

Capcom has also revealed that a demo for the game will also be available to download for both the 3DS and Wii U versions on 21st February, meaning you can get a bit of practice in before the real deal comes out.

We've learnt over the past week that the Wii U version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will use the built-in microphone on the GamePad for voice chat as well as accommodating USB keyboards after a day-one update to enable users to chat via that method as well.
