Monster Hunter save transfer and packet relay tools coming 'by Friday'

The noticeably absent Packet Relay Tools and Data Transfer Program apps for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate should arrive on Nintendo's eShop by Friday, March 22, Capcom tells Joystiq. The Data Transfer Program will allow players to port their save files between the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game.

"Nintendo is working very closely with us to get these live as soon as possible and we anticipate that they will both be available on the Nintendo eShop by Friday, March 22," Capcom says. The publisher planned to launch both apps along with the game yesterday.

"We sincerely apologize for the delay and appreciate that eager fans are looking forward to the feature set offered by the two apps," Capcom adds.
