Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate’s multiplayer servers are to be region locked, a Capcom rep has confirmed.

Confirming the news on the official Capcom forum, Capcom USA online/community specialist Yuri Lindbergh said:

“I’m not thrilled with the servers being split either… I am definitely aware of the demand and feedback, not only in this thread, but also from threads before finding out these bad news; so be sure that I will pass it along. There is no guarantee this will change though”

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate hits the Wii U and 3DS on March 19th for US gamers, and March the 22nd for those in Europe.
