Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Stays On-Screen

Ryozo Tsujimoto, producer of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, has announced that the Wii U version of this title will definitely not support the feature of off-screen TV play.

He spoke to Joystiq in order to explain this decision, focusing on the reason that the two-screen experience is vital to the game’s overall playability and enjoyment:

“We don’t have that feature in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate – really, the way that we approach making the title for the Wii U was that we wanted to make the Wii U gamepad subscreen a compliment to the main screen. So instead of making the screens replaceable or being able to switch them, we really wanted to make sure that players are utilizing both real estate of the screens, in conjunction with each other.”

While this may or may not impact your purchase decision for the title, it’s nice to hear that there is specific reasoning behind the decision.
