Don't worry about having to dish out $100 if you want Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on both the 3DS and Wii U. Capcom has announced that purchasing both versions via Amazon will knock the price down by $20. That's not too shabby if you want to hunt on the go and on your television.

This may not seem worth it, but keep in mind saves can be shared between the two consoles -- meaning you can play at home, save, and keep slaying no matter where you are.

Both versions of the game must be purchased in the same transaction in order to take advantage of this deal, and it must be done through Amazon.

The Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate demo is making its way to the eShop on February 21. It will be seeing a release on both platforms on March 19 in North America and March 22 in Europe.

Those of you still playing Monster Hunter Tri, remember: Tri's servers are closing on April 30.

Monster Hunter Tri's servers are finally going down on April 30. If you haven't gotten in on any multiplayer hunts in the game's three-year server lifespan, you might want to consider doing so now.

It's always sad to see a game's servers close down, but in this case it's in the name of progress: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the Wii U and 3DS is right around the corner on March 19. Tri players have over a month after 3 Ultimate's release to wrap things up and move onto the sequel.

With rumors of Monster Hunter 4 heading to the Vita floating around, this looks to be an exciting year for the franchise. I'd played most of the entries to the series on the PSP and skipped out on Tri. 3 Ultimate looks stellar, and the ever-elusive Monster Hunter 4 is sure to be a strong entry to MH series. Just glad I won't have to do "the claw" on my PSP ever again.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Release Date Looms Sat, 19 Jan 2013 06:50:28 -0500 Ashley Shankle

Nintendo Wii U and 3DS owners get ready: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is coming your way in March!

Everything about 3 Ultimate looks amazing, but there's one special feature that sets it apart from its predecessors: voice chat. Capcom has announced and confirmed that 3U will allow players to choose between text and voice chat for their multiplayer adventures.

The last Monster Hunter title we got in North America was Tri, three years ago. Portable 3rd never left Japan, despite having a unique setting among the rest of the series; 3U has taken over a year to be localized. So we're just a bit behind here.

Capcom is closing the doors on Monster Hunter Tri's servers six weeks after the release of 3U -- so those of you not convinced to hop over may want to change your tune if you want to keep on huntin'.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be available on March 19 in North America and March 22 in Europe. Keep your eyes open for a demo on February 21 to see how 3U improves on what Tri had to offer.
