Instant buy
I'm really excited about this.

Same here. But as a side note, I love how Capcom's been emphasizing the word free in every new announcement they recently make, especially with things that are supposed to be free. First a "free" Resident Evil 6 update and now MH3: U getting free online multiplayer. These guys really love committing PR suicide in any scale.

This is good news.
The game looks great.
I want to play this.

How is this news they already said the Wii U's online will be free.

how about a first Wii with free online and Dragon Quest X on Wii with online fee? :)

For Japan.

free online play???!! *adjusts monocle* outrageous i say!
Duh this is old lol the wii u has free online

Just because the wii u has free online, doesn't mean capcom can't charge for online with their own games, they did it on the wii for the japan version and they could very well do it again if they wanted to

Why emphasize the bit about it being free? I'm pretty sure Nintendo never said anything about the service being a paid one. And this game ain't an MMO either.

Not complaining. It's just... odd.

All the better to bring excitement to Wii U! anyway, not everyone knows this is gonna be free (although most expected it to be)...
PopRocks359  +   704d ago
That's a very good point. I guess it's especially important for anyone who's unfamiliar with Nintendo online or Monster Hunter games.

You had to pay in Japan.

I didn't read the article, was on my phone at the time and usually only read the comments.

I played through both the JP and PAL versions of MHTri. Played both online, you got a month free for the JP version and then had to pay afterwards. I didn't pay for it though, played as much as I can in that first month and got pretty far.

Managed to play it properly on the PAL with a friend and enjoyed it 10 times more.

Sadly, I won't be getting this version. I'm still a fan of MH, but I'm waiting for a true home console release with major changes and additions.

I'm confused... why is this news?
VonAlbrecht  +   704d ago
Not only has it been announced that the Wii U will feature free online, every Monster Hunter game ever (excluding Frontier) has always had free online play. Gematsu is truly outrageous.
Sigh  +   704d ago
kinda thought that would be granted, for it to be free. Why would you pay extra to play online for Wii-U?
Old McGroin  +   704d ago
Wasn't aware that there was a chance they were going to charge for this! Still, at least this story will ease the fans who thought this might happens fears.

So psyched for this game!
