I've never played the Monster Hunter series before but I've been interested in this game. I got the demo for the 3DS and Wii U to try it out and it's definitely a game that requires a steep learning curve and some research to fully understand what to do. I think though that when you do grasp the controls and gameplay it would be a very rewarding and fun game to play. So I'm not going to give up on it because it isn't always best to make judgement on a game based on its demo.

Anyone else been playing the demo or picking the game up when it's released?

I cancelled my preorder when I found out it was region locked & I couldn't play with US pals on my friendlist.

I just tried the demo on the Wii U. Controls are a bit tough to get used to, but the graphics are pretty nice, and I do like a challenge. I'm gonna pre-order it soon. Seems like a good game to get for online multi-player.

Looks like they changed their minds about the cross-region co-op. Great news!

A statement from Nintendo reads:

We can confirm that on March 22nd, the launch day of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, an application named MONSTER HUNTER 3 ULTIMATE Packet Relay Tools for Nintendo 3DS will be made available as a free download on the Nintendo eShop on Wii U.
This application allows players of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Nintendo 3DS to play the game online by using a Wii U console connected to the Internet via the Wii LAN Adapter or Wii U LAN Adapter (to be sold separately). Using this set-up, one Nintendo 3DS system can connect to the Wii U console, and play Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate online with other players.

Please note that while the Wii U console is providing this function for the Nintendo 3DS system, it is not possible to simultaneously use the Wii U console for playing Wii U software or to connect locally to another Nintendo 3DS system. A copy of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U is not required.

IGN have given it 8.8. Great score. I may not get it straight away because I'm planning on getting Lego City: Undercover and I'm a bit tight for money, but I'm still interested in getting it at some point. Hopefully I will enjoy it just as much as the reviewer.
