Monster Hunter 3 fact sheet

Posted 10 years ago by in News, Wii | 5 Comments

Monster Hunter Tri is coming to the West in early 2010 and for the first time Western Wii owners will be able to join the hunt as one of Capcom’s leading franchises makes its debut on the system.

One of the most strikingly beautiful titles ever developed for Nintendo’s Wii, Monster Hunter Tri depicts a living, breathing ecosystem where man co-exists with the fantastic beasts that roam both the dry land and the brand new sub-aqua environment – a first for the series.

While we obviously don’t know for sure, it’s possible that WiiRelax could be Nintendo’s companion piece of software that will launch alongside the Wii Vitality Sensor. It’d certainly make sense, wouldn’t it?

XSEED Games is pleased to announce today the North American ship date for the upcoming Wii™ exclusive release, The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces. The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces will start shipping to retailers across the country January 12th, 2010 for the suggested retail price of $29.99.

The somber story of a world that needs war to survive, based on a novel series by Hiroshi MORI and adapted into an animated film directed by Mamoru Oshii and released by Sony Pictures in the US, is told with a combination of animated cut-scenes and voiced in-game sequences during battle. Players take on the role of a rookie pilot new to the combat pilot group known as the Sky Crawlers. Dog-fighting simulation and flight is mirrored by a unique gameplay mechanic; players hold the Nunchuk™ in the right hand as the flight control stick, tilted to roll, pitch, and yaw, while the Wii Remote™, acting as the throttle, is held in the left hand and is tilted up to accelerate and down to decelerate.

The Wii exclusive air combat game was developed by the Project ACES team of Ace Combat fame and is rated T for Teen. The retail release comes with reversible cover art so that fans of the animated movie may flip the cover to reveal the same front boxart as the Japanese release. Fans are encouraged to visit the newly launched official site at
