On the Wii U, Monster Hunter Looks Better Than Ever

Richard Eisenbeis: ''No one can doubt that Monster Hunter is a phenomenal success in Japan. One iteration or another has been on every major console of the last generation (sans the Nintendo DS). So it is no surprise that when the Wii U launched in Japan, it had a Monster Hunter to go along with it: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.''

The story is too old to be commented.

It's an HD upgrade of a Wii game, right? Unless there are Monster Hunter games on the 360/PS3/PC this would make it the first one for HD consoles, right?

So of course it looks better than ever. It's in HD.

Either way, the game does actually look pretty good for an HD Wiimake. It'll be my first Monster Hunter game and I'm itching to try it soon.

Monster Hunter portable third HD is on the PlayStation 3 but it has to be imported from Japan

PopRocks3591229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

I stand corrected then. Shame they never brought that one over. Perhaps they can do one for the PS4 and localize it?

@Starfox17

Get rule dude. The PS3 can't handle a Wii HD remake? What the hell do you call Tales of Graces F? Or the No More Heroes ports?

PFFT1229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

This HD remake is gonna be good!!! They will be adding more monsters, Areas, Armors and Weapons. Man i cant wait for this game!! Demo next week by the way!

Army_of_Darkness1229d ago

And house of the dead oevrkill, which is way better than the wii version;-)

lilbroRx1229d ago

Its an HD ugrade for a 3DS game, not Wii. The Wii version actually had a little bit more geometry if I recall.

This will be the thrid Monster Hunter in HD. The first one was Frontier for the 360, though that was only 720p and the same with MHP3 on the PS3.

3 Ultimate is the first in 1080p though.

RFornillos41229d ago

an HD upgrade with additional content, might I add. they say they've at least 50 hours worth of content.

Starfox171229d ago

Monster hunter was too ambitious for ps3 in other words the wii game tri was too much for ps3 to handle in HD ect.

momthemeatloaf1229d ago

That's believable since PS3 can't even run Call of Duty in HD.

cpayne931229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

That makes no sense at all. The ps3 can't handle an hd port of a wii game? What nonsense is this?

pain777pas1229d ago

Cpayne really? Don't waste your time on "Starfox" (Nintedelusional) and "momthemeatloaf"(has not reached puberty). They have no clue or idea what they are talking about. Your right they are ridiculous and clueless. This is an exclusivity deal that they made for a series that they will end up in the end killing or holding back from greatness.

cpayne931229d ago

@pain777pas what got me was the fact that so many people are agreeing with this drivel. It's insane. I suppose I should just ignore the crazies though...

Yodagamer1229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

It can technically handle it, but capcom found it far to expensive to try to produce a game as big as tri. aka they wanted the $$$. As for the pain777, the series did better for capcom on the wii/3ds which is why they signed the deal as Nintendo has funded ads for it over in europe and north america.

@pain777pas

Well actually momthemeatloaf is correct.... CoD games are sub HD on all consoles.

We dont know that.... but i highly doubt the PS3 cant run it.

They can scale every fu**ing game..... look at PC, some multiplatform games are looking much better on PC, but the same game can be playable on PS3/Xbox360. Even if the PC is much more powerful than current gen consoles, they can still scale ti down if they wish.

Zichu1229d ago

This is the reason I bought a Wii U, anything else is a bonus. The console is pretty cool though.

SirBradders1229d ago

I badly want to play this but refuse to buy a whole console for it. Whats the online like for it is there events/updates released like the pc version?

A7XEric1229d ago

I'm sorta in the same boat. I'd be more inclined to play it if it was built from the ground up for the Wii U instead of just a last gen game running in HD.

Starfox171229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

Can i say i have Wiiu and u will use the GAMEPAD for browsing,gaming,watching films,the lot its replaced my android and pc as the No1 Browser its blazing fast it does HD video yes HD porn as well,it's alot more than a games console in my eyes.

DevineAssault it's more than a few things added on the monsters behave even better and let me say before hand the AI on the monsters was far beyond any ps3 game and there more intelligent now,theres like 50% more content and its running on a more powerful MT framework so is 3ds version it's simply not tri on wii re-textured as ign puts it,it's a beast of a game.

SirBradders1229d ago

@starfox the browser is only as fast as your incoming internet conncetion my phone will always be my number 1 browser source because i can choose what browser to use and dont have to be in my room. Hspd is gonna be 128 mbps which im sure will suffice for the internet. Also because its portable i can watch films anywhere on the planet and because its android i can download them for free so the only thing the wiiu has to offer is its games which are mostly kids games and rehashed games charged at almost full price so yea i think ill stick with my phablet for general music,video and browsing and wait to see what sony and microsoft bring to the table gamingwise.

Jek_Porkins1229d ago

I've never played a Monster Hunter game, but this looks like something I would enjoy on my Wii U. Are these games good?

Jobesy1229d ago

Played a MH on PSP once, kind cool, I could see how some people love the series, but ultimately not for me.

As for comparison, think SotC but more fleshed out.

C-Thunder1229d ago

They are great! Something about progression in these games are so addictive, there is no leveling up, you only get stronger by better understanding the monsters and by crafting new weapons and armor all made from monster parts and gathered materials.

In addition, I've found the online community for tri to be extremely positive and friendly, it is rarely hard to find someone willing to help you out if needed and the sense of teamwork when taking down one of the beasts is unmatched.

rezzah1229d ago

It is a love it or hate it game.

DivineAssault 1229d ago

bubble plus my friend.. u made me lol..

i just love it when theres HD remasters with FULL retail price tags.. When sony does it, they slap 2 or more games on one disc for $40.. But nintendo (& or capcom) thinks a few extras in the same exact game from last gen in HD warrants a $60 price tag.. Windwaker is a remake but it still shouldnt be any higher than $40 because ultimately its the same exact effin game.. A gamecube game at that..

Ck1x1229d ago

This is how much you troll Nintendo articles, because this is Capcom and has nothing to do with Nintendo's work at all. Stop generalizing Sony as this weak always getting the short end of the stick type of company. Because that's just not true at all...

PFFT1229d ago

Actually this would be considered a few MH games in one since they added stuff from previous titles in to this one. Areas, monster, Armors and Weapons.So its not only 1 game. This is more like 3 or 4 games in one.

RTheRebel1229d ago

your annoying as mika @_@

TruthbeTold1229d ago (Edited 1229d ago )

Wind Waker HD isn't just an HD port. It's an HD remake. There will be new features and supposedly dungeons as well which were originally made but unused in the final product. Well worth $60 imo.

As for others, let's take for instance Sony bundling God of War 1 & 2 together in HD, I think that one reason for that was because those games could be bought at the time for less than $20 (as PS2 games) since they were still being sold in the greatest hits series. Not to mention, they wanted to have an HD God of War product available for people who hadn't yet played GoW, but were thinking about getting GoW 3.

Every situation is different.
