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

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
