Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate servers region-locked

When Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate comes out in March, you'll have no help online from the Japanese players who will have been practicing for months. The servers for online multiplayer in the Wii U action RPG are region locked, according to a GameReactor interview conducted with producer Ryozo Tsujimoto. "In principle, the online game in Europe is only among Europeans," Tsujimoto said. Capcom clarified to the site that the region lock keeps North America, Europe, and Japan sequestered to their own regions.

Capcom community specialist Yuri Lindbergh responded to US fans, pledging to pass along fans' universal displeasure to Capcom.
