Wonder why Europe has been so vocal on this game lately but NOA has been too quiet.
Glad to see Wii Speak getting support and I hope that applies to the US release as well.
wii speak means online voice chat?
It's a mic device you put on top of your TV and allows for full room voice chat, not just single person like head sets. Built in software cancels out most non-voice noise, including game audio so it works pretty damn well.
This game is online? When does it come out? How many people can play together? It's kinda like a MMO then? DO you just play through the main campaign together or something?
Online - Yes
Releases - April 2010
Up to 4 players together
Not really like a MMO. And players basically play through various quests.
is it available in japan already?
Its pointing to no fees, and if one of the UK Nintendo magazines is to be believed, there will not be online fees. I'd say its pretty much a given, the way that Capcom has also gone about it.
Desired: Zelda Wii, Batman Arkham, 3DS
Present: Mass Effect 2
Monster Hunter Tri Release Date Set for April
Today, Capcom announced an official date for Monster Hunter Tri, as well as information on the online multiplayer and a demo. Yes, that's right, a demo for the Wii. Welcome to the current generation, everyone, it's just swell. Fans of Capcom's series should be happy to know that a release is just around the corner, with the title arriving on store shelves on April 20, 2010. They won't have to wait until then to play it, though, as a demo disk will be in Gamestops on March 8th. As if that wasn't enough, there's also some news on the game's online component that should make fans of monsters and hunting weak in the knees.
Not only will the game be online for free, but it will have Wii Speak support, meaning everyone can scream at each other from across the room over the internet. While I'm not the biggest fan of the Monster Hunter series, it's good to see Capcom taking advantage of every element of the Wii in order to make the game feel as modern as possible. Sure, the online might not be up to snuff with the PS3 and Xbox 360's, but most companies seem to ignore it's even part of the system, including Nintendo. If anything was needed (beyond more accessible gameplay, that is) to make Tri a success in the US, competent online multiplayer should do the trick. The Classic Controller Pro bundle shouldn't hurt either.
We'll have more soon, so be sure to check back for all of your Nintendo related needs. I know you have them, we all do, it's alright, don't be ashamed.
badass i know. This is the closest im gonna get to true fantasy liive online so im gonna party like it's 2004 all over again.
