New software update coming out on April 16.

The software update for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U will be available on April 16th, allowing you to play using the GamePad instead of the TV screen, as well as cross region matchmaking between US and EU players. What feature are you looking forward to most?

Oh cool. I'm was disappointed by the lack of Off-TV play, because my TV sucks for gaming.

Oh God. They're not re-scaling the UI. The font is going to be even less readable than before!

Still hella hyped, though.

Excellent. Looks like I'll finally be buying the Wii U version in the next week or so. Been sticking with the 3DS version until this update hits.

Really wish they'd patch it to make the text box much bigger rather than relegating it to the bottom corner of the screen.

From our good Japanese friends:

Because they may be reluctant "Monster Hunter 3G" and then doing a TV monopoly,
This update I'm really happy.

I think they will rescale the UI, that text is barely visible. Maybe not in this patch, but another one after.

I can see the draw of off screen play, however it is kinda ironic. Series going from hand held (psp/3ds) -> console (wii-u) -> back to hand held (wii-u tablet). Seems like if I really wanted to play on a hand held I'd just pick up that versions, which was built for running on handhelds (IE. You can read what is happening)

Its less expensive and more prettier this way, but yeah, the text definitely needs to be fixed.

It was a little more complicated than that with this series, actually.

console (PS2) --> handheld (PSP) --> console (Wii) --> handheld (PSP) --> handheld (3DS) --> console (Wii U) --> handheld (3DS again for MH4)

I had to bring my TV forward a little bit to be able to read the text. And I still need to squint my eyes a little bit to ready it.

Doesn't matter if I can play it off-TV, though. I can survive with not being able to read the text for a while, though it would be good if they fix this on this very same patch.

You would have to be completely terrible at the game to waste that much time.

If they couldn't be bothered finding a more appropriate font for the 3DS version, I doubt the text boxes are going to be re-scaled for the gamepad

Cross-regional servers is cool though
