Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U hands on at joystiq

Bags Hooper shares his experience on joystiq playing the Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U demo at the recent New York Comicon:

[the quest] "Howl at the Moon" featured Zinogre, a giant monster that looks like a blue-gold hybrid of a stegosaurus and a kimodo dragon. I didn't remember this monster from Tri, and the Capcom PR rep told me it was new to Ultimate but was on Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, the PSP adaptation. The Wii U's 1080p graphics offered lush environments with better use of lighting. You could see more vibrant separations between colors. Textures were more richly defined and I could see every fiber on the Zinogre's crystallized back. It also appeared that the game was running at a constant 60 frames per second, which the PR rep verified.

I'm so looking forward to playing Monster Hunter in high def... This game is a system seller for me.
