Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate to run in 1080p on the Wii U
More and more games on the Wii U seem to support 1080p these days. We know several indie titles will support the full HD resolution, such as Toki Tori 2. Other games like Rayman Legends and ZombiU will both support 1080p resolution.
Now Japanese magazine Famitsu reveals that the upcoming Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate from Capcom will support 1080p as well. On top of that, it will include 5.1 channel surround as well. This is yet another testament that the Wii U is a powerful console, especially on the graphics side of things.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is a remake of the Wii game that was released on the Wii in 2010. The new version will include updated graphics (in 1080p!), new content and new features. And of course it will fully support the GamePad controller for a second screen experience. Another feature that was just revealed was that players will be able to play Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate locally with up to three players with the Nintendo 3DS. And players will be able to play the game on the Wii U, and export their save games to the 3DS and continue playing.
The game will be released in March 2013.
