Attention Wii U and 3DS Monster Hunter fans!

The Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate demo is now available in the Wii U and 3DS eShop. In Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, you'll battle enormous monsters and craft a huge assortment of weapons and armor. With over 200 quests, there's always something to do and something to fight! Fortunately, you'll be aided by two cute little companions: Cha-Cha and Kayamba. Challenge the expansive world in gorgeous 1080p high-definition graphics.

Demo requirements:
  • Wii U - 889MB
  • 3DS - 1,609 Blocks
Each of these demos offer 30 plays, each for 20 minutes. Albeit a tad repetitious, that's a whopping 10 hours of monster hunting for each system!

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate will be released for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS on March 19th, 2013 in North America and on March 22nd in Europe.

Have you had a chance to try the demo(s)? If so, what are your thoughts?

The twenty minute limit only applies if you fail to kill the beastie. Completing the quest you choose out of the two will end the demo rght there. Still, the 3DS demo was quite fun, though the snow level monster almost killed me multiple times. Really lookingforward to the game now.
I feel the 3DS demo is an example of a bad demo. While the game itself looks really good, the presentation of the demo is horrendous.
I felt completely and utterly lost.

Compared with the Castlevania demo, I have a much more favourable impression of Castlevania (it provides a controls map showing what button is what and little tutorial hints).

About to try the Wii U demo
The Wii U demo is exactly the same as the 3DS one, just in high definition. So, if you were lost in the 3DS one, you'll probably feel the same in the Wii U demo.
Ok just tried the Wii U demo. While the game looks really nice and the controls are much better with the GamePad, it is not a game for me. I can see it providing endless frustration :3
omg I love it!!! I cant stand to use the big bulky weapons though so i'll probably stick to the classic sword and shield combo or the double sword combo.. much swifter! I already preordered and fully paid the game off so bring on the 19th!!!
Once I figured out the controls I started to really enjoy the demos. As with most games I sat down, picked up the controller, and started to play but after 30 min of wondering why I was drinking all of my potions and not slashing away at the monster I figured it was time to pause and read the manual.
Both demos started with me drinking one potion by accident. Got the hang of the controls immediately after that, myself.
I'm being completely honest with everyone. These Monster Hunter titles aren't my cup of tea. I won't be purchasing either one of them. I just can't seem to find any interest exploring a vast world hunting different monsters all day. I've deleted both of my demos to free up some blocks. I didn't have to, but I knew I'd never play the demos again.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but I didn't particularly care for the controls. I found it difficult to do what I wanted.
