  • I'm gonna have to chose between this and Fire Emblem: Awakening as the next game I get on my 3DS. This is going to be a tough decision.

  • I am definitely getting this game. The only question is for which device. Do I want an HD or a portable version of this beauty? Curse you, Nintendo! Why can't you be a little like Sony on this single occasion!?

  • I can't wait for this, the date seems so close yet so far. Definately picking this up on day one for thr 3ds.

  • Cool.

  • This might just give my 'ole Wii U some use. . .

  • im definitly getting the wii u version cant wait to play it cause my wii version monster hunter tri always freezes at the end of the single player and dont get a chance to carve from the huge dragon boss/best epic soundtrack ive ever heard along with alatreon boss music

  • I can't wait for this on wiiu. From the look of the release date list I will be playing this for about half of the year.

  • Might just have to give this a try.
