Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate - In Stores Now!

Well today's the day everyone! Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is in stores now for both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U! But, just what is Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate? Well, if you haven't heard, let me explain!

The Monster Hunter series is currently one of the biggest series in gaming history out there; in Japan. It is a massive game where you create your own character, pick your weapon class, and then go out on "hunts" to fight giant "boss" monsters. The game is based around killing monsters, carving their dead bodies for materials, and then crafting said materials into equipment and items that will help you on future hunts. Although Monster Hunter may not be for everyone, the gameplay becomes quite addicting, and the rush you receive from finally killing a monster is what keeps you coming back for more.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is the newest entry in the series. While the original Monster Hunter Tri (3) was on the Nintendo Wii, this updated version is on both the 3DS and Wii U, and features many improvements over the original version. It features thousands of new pieces of equipment, many more bosses to fight, new areas to explore, and new weapon classes to use as well.

While the original Monster Hunter Tri was one of the biggest Wii games out there (with an average of 80 hours per player being clocked online each week), Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is a massive expansion, and is sure to be the next big thing to hit a Nintendo console. If you haven't played a Monster Hunter game before, and you have a 3DS or Wii U, I strongly recommend checking this one out!
