Capcom and Nintendo have today confirmed that following the 23rd March release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U, a software update will be released in April as a response to Capcom community feedback. The new patch will feature cross-region support between America and European servers, combining them into one consistent region.
The April update will also bring with it off-TV play for the Wii U, allowing players to switch the game to the GamePad controller for a more unique gaming experience.
Capcom has also revealed plans to support the Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate title for several months after release with the addition of free weekly downloadable quests. The first quest will be available upon the launch of the title.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be available for both the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U on 23rd March.
