Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate hardware bundles incoming

Nintendo of Europe will launch limited edition Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate hardware bundles alongside the game on March 22.

The Wii U pack will contain a black 32GB console, a black Wii U Pro Controller and a copy of the Capcom game, while the 3DS XL pack will come with the title pre-installed on a new black model of the portable.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is set for release in the U.S. on March 19, and Nintendo of America said today that a demo of the title will launch on the eShop on February 21.

You can use the same save data across both version of the game, meaning you can switch between playing it on the portable on the go and the big screen at home. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate also supports online play on Wii U, and lets one user play it on the home console alongside three local players on 3DS. See more of the game in action in the video below starring producer Ryozo Tsujimoto.

Nintendo also said today that the Circle Pad XL Pro will launch in Europe on March 22.

    Though I never played this series, this does make me contemplate getting one. Unfortunately the only thing still keeping me (aside from money) is the account getting stuck to 1 console.

    I really, REALLY hope this comes to NA. I've been looking for an excuse to buy a Wii U and bundling it with Monster Hunter, the game I want most for the system currently, is the perfect way to get me to buy it. Please Capcom/Nintendo/gaming Gods, make it so!

    I'm curious how much people will be playing this here in the U.S. I wonder how full the servers would get, because this really is the only game besides AC that i've ever enjoyed multiplayer on.

    Hope this one comes to the US, This looks like the Bundle for me & much prefer the cover of the box for display over the big ugly Zombie for the ZombiU system bundle.

    ..Bought my Wii U premium a month back because it was on a really good deal. And now this gets announced...T.T

    Aww, not in America? I'd much prefer this bundle over getting the Zombie U one
