Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is launching on Wii U and 3DS on these shores in March and Capcom has detailed and released images of the game’s stale weapon set – the trust Sword and Shield class – to give newcomers an insight into the basics of combat.

Capcom Unity posted the below shots this morning, which show the default weapon set after creating your hunter in-game. The post stresses that while the Sword and Shield combo is ideal for beginners, veterans can use it to produce devastating results given enough practice.

You can get more information via the link above. Meanwhile, the game’s March release trundles ever-closer on Wii U and 3DS, with local co-op and character importing between both consoles at launch. Let us know if you plan on picking the game up below.
