Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will not have off-TV play on Wii U
Bad news, Monster Hunter fans. Capcom has confirmed that Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will not have off-TV play on the Wii U. One of the biggest features of the new console will not be implemented in this Wii up-port.
I don’t find this terribly surprising because Capcom also has to sell people on purchasing a portable 3DS version of the same game.
If the Wii U version possessed portable play (so long as you’re within 30 feet of the console) then perhaps Capcom fears that may effect the sales of the 3DS version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.
No off-TV play in Monster Hunter for us then.
