Practice Killing Beasts in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Demo

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Demo Out Today
The demo for the much anticipated Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is now here!  As of right now, you can check out some sweet single player monster killing action on the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS.

I'm glad this came out today, because the wait for this game is harrowing.  At least we can all get a taste of the action before the game's March 19 release!

You can read the release after the jump.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Demo Available Now!

Capcom today confirmed that playable demos for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the Wii U system and Nintendo 3DS hand-held system are available now for free download in the Nintendo eShop.

The free single player demo will feature two full quests, one for beginner players and another for intermediate hunters, in addition to 12 different weapon options for players to choose for their battle. Players will have to brave the elements of the frozen tundra against the fierce Lagombi and take the fight against the aquatic Plesioth on land AND into the water!

Hunters are encouraged to test and hone their skills now, as the full game will hit retail stores in North America on March 19, 2013 and across Europe on March 22, 2013.

In Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, players take on the role of a hunter sent to explore a settlement within the Monster Hunter universe, completing quests on their journey to seek and slay monsters while improving their skills and earning equipment upgrades. With many challenging monsters and over 200 quests, the latest addition to the series is set to be the most expansive offering to date. The game can be played alone and offers a bevy of multiplayer set-up options: online (up to four players) on the Wii U system, or locally using up to four Nintendo 3DS systems or a combination of up to three Nintendo 3DS systems and one Wii U system.
