Monster Hunter Tri (also known as Monster Hunter 3) has shipped to retail across North America, exclusively for Wii, Capcom announced - the game will launch in Europe on April 23rd. The latest installment in the Monster Hunter series depicts a living, breathing ecosystem where man co-exists with the fantastic beasts that roam both the dry land and the brand new sub-aqua environment - a first for the series. With the option of split-screen mode, two players can hunt co-operatively or form a team of up to four hunters via the game's custom online Wi-Fi mode. Even solo players do not have to face Monster Hunter Tri's quests alone as they will be ably accompanied by Cha-Cha, an AI hunting partner whose skills will prove invaluable. New items, weapons and armour sets will be also available to assist the hunters. A new trailer is now available.
