A few pictures taken from the Connichi (an anime convention in Germany) shows an interesting banner for Monster Hunter 4 coming to Wii U.
Twitter user “Tony” took two pictures showing the banner of Monster Hunter 4 with the Wii U logo displayed on the corner. You can view the pictures by clicking here and here. A NeoGAF user also posted up a photo. His picture of the banner is not so clear, but you can see from behind the Wii U logo is still there.
The game is actually the “Ultimate” version of Monster Hunter 4. The game has only been released for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan so far. Western gamers will not get the 3DS version until early 2015. A Wii U version would be awesome if this turns out to be true. Hopefully either Nintendo and/or Capcom makes a surprise announcement at TGS for the game later this month.
Nintendo did release Monster Hunter Tri for the original Wii console and that game was well received. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate came to the Wii U so it would make sense if Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate make its way to the console too.
If a game is to elevate Wii U sales, Monster Hunter 4 would do it. Japan and many Western gamers still love playing Monster Hunter games.
Update: Capcom confirmed the banner shown was a “misprint”. The game is still for the 3DS only at this time.
