Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Monster Hunter 3 dated for Wii U

Two key titles have been given UK release dates for Nintendo’s Wii U.

EA’s Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Capcom’s Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will both be released on March 21st.

The racing title will allow for co-op and co-driver gameplay, with the latter using both the Wii U Pro Controller and the GamePad with one player offering navigation assistance to the other on an interactive map. These secondary players will be able to distract the police and switch from night to day.

Off-screen GamePad-only play is also supported.

Monster Hunter, meanwhile, will also arrive on the 3DS on the same day as its Wii U cousin. Both versions will be available in demo form on February 21st.

Nintendo has also confirmed that players will be able to switch their save data between version, allowing the same game to be played both at home and on the move.
