Game saves can be transferred digitally between Wii U and 3DS versions of the game.

In today's Nintendo Direct presentation, a feature that is normally touted by Sony in its PlayStation platforms was announced for March 19th's 'Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.'

'Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate' for the Wii U and the 3DS share an identical design aside from graphical differences, and as a result Capcom will be supporting cross platform play. Seen in games like 'Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker,' game saves from either the Wii U or 3DS version can be digitally transferred and used on the other platform.

In addition to sharing saves, 'Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate' also supports cross platform play for multiplayer. A Wii U player can play online and hunt with a group of four Wii U players, or a "Wii U player can connect with up to three 3DS players to create a hunting party."

A demo for both platforms will be available February 21st.
