We are getting closer every day to the shutdown of the 3DS and Wii U eShop services. Many companies have issued reminders to grab their games on these platforms before they shut down, and now Capcom has joined in with a PSA regarding the Monster Hunter games.

On the company’s official Monster Hunter social media accounts – it issued an important reminder that eShop services will end later this month on March 27. This means that the Monster Hunter titles for this platform will no longer be available for new digital purchases. Fortunately, if you purchased them beforehand, they can still be downloaded again in the future.

Here’s what happens:

Nintendo 3DS:
– Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
– Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
– Monster Hunter Generations

Wii U:
– Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate

There is also some related “save data” software you might want to get before the shutdown. This software will not be available for new downloads after the store closures, but may be re-downloaded in the future:

“Players who wish to use the data transfer services in the future are strongly encouraged to download the software before the end of the Nintendo eShop service on these platforms.”

Nintendo 3DS:
– Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Save Data Transfer
– Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Save Transfer App

Wii U:
– Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Packet Relay Tools

Another Monster Hunter title worth picking up is the 2017 release, Monster Hunter Stories.

And to make this whole process a little easier, Capcom has also reduced its 3DS and Wii U eShop library in select areas, reducing the price of each game to just $2.99 ​​USD. You can learn more in our previous posts:
