With handheld systems finally practically catching up with its home console counterparts in both power and storage space, a new opportunity for ubiquitous gaming arrived. Many games for the 3DS and Vita can download and upload saved games to the Wii U and PS3, meaning that things like vacations and trips to grandmother’s house will no longer force you to wait to finish up your game. Instead, you now have the ability to play through the exact same game and pick up right where you left off, all on your handheld system.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate was to have this feature, where you could transfer your saved game to and from the 3DS and the Wii U. Unfortunately Capcom has hit a bit of a snag, and despite the game coming out earlier this week the transfer program has yet to show up on Nintendo’s eShop yet. Luckily, the delay doesn’t appear to be a long one.
Capcom told [button link=”http://www.joystiq.com/2013/03/20/monster-hunter-save-transfer-and-packet-relay-tools-coming-by-f/” newwindow=”yes”] Source[/button] last night that they’re working with Nintendo “to get (the Data Transfer Program) live as soon as possible and we anticipate that they will both be available on the Nintendo eShop by Friday, March 22.” So yea, it sucks to have to wait another day or two, but it’s not the end of the world. After all, it should be out for the weekend, so for those people who are looking to take the game with them while on the road somewhere should have no problem doing so.
