We received some good news and some bad news concerning Monster Hunter 3 today.
The good news: Capcom finally nailed down a release date for Ultimate and confirmed voice chat (plus reconfirmed USB keyboard support) for the Wii U version.
Here’s the bad news: Monster Hunter Tri’s servers will be switched off on April 30. That date is set six weeks after the launch of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U and 3DS. You’ll be able to game local multiplayer if you purchase the 3DS title, but online is restricted to the Wii U version.
