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.
