Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Multiplayer Servers will be Region Locked

By   /   4 years ago

Not a good news for those of you who were looking forward to playing Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate multiplayer, because Capcom has just announced that the game’s multiplayer servers will be region locked. The news first broke in a Spanish GameReactor interview, but Capcom later confirmed it on its official forums.

Capcom’s community specialist Yuri Lindbergh had this to say on the subject:

I’m not thrilled with the servers being split either. I am definitely aware of the demand and feedback, not only in this thread, but also from threads before finding out these bad news; so be sure that I will pass it along. There is no guarantee this will change though.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is released on Wii U and 3DS on 19th March in the US and 22nd March in Europe. The 3DS version can be linked to the Wii U edition, but on its own it has no online multiplayer whatsoever – only local connections can be made, meaning you’ll have to keep your hunting party close at hand.

The region lock basically means that North American gamers won’t able to play with Europeans or Japanese players and vice versa.
