Nintendo Australia has also recently announced the Ultimate Monster Hunter competition, in which Monster Hunter fans can compete for their chance to be crowned "Ultimate Monster Hunter" and score a visit to Nintendo Australia’s head office. The winner will also be given the opportunity to create a gameplay launch trailer for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

To enter the competition, fans must submit footage of themselves playing Monster Hunter Tri demonstrating their skill on YouTube, and send a link to the competition website. More information can be found at the Nintendo Australia website.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will support cross-platform multiplayer over the Internet or via a local Wi-Fi connection. Players who own the 3DS and Wii U versions will be able to transfer their save files between both systems, allowing them to take their game on the road with the 3DS, and then pick up where they left off on the Wii U when they get home.
