As a lot of you probably know, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will allow you to transfer your saved data between your 3DS and Wii U. Those who plan to buy both versions of the game will be pleased to know that the transfer is simple. Speaking with IGN
, Monster Hunter creator and producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto, revealed that you will be required to download a small app on the 3DS. The process is fast and easy; all you have to do is open the app and press a button to perform the transfer - you don't even have to be connected to the internet.
Tsujimoto on the reasoning for having two versions:
There are people who want to play outside with the 3DS version, and also people who want to play at home online; hopefully we can hit both of those audiences at the same time. There will of course also be people who will want both versions.
We’re really hoping that because of the strategy that we have with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate we will be able to reach out to a greater range of fans.
