Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate producer Ryozo Tsujimoto has confirmed that the Wii U edition will not allow for GamePad-only play. It’s firmly a two screen experience he said.

Speaking with Joystiq Tsujimoto said, “We don’t have that feature within Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

“Really, the way that we approach making the title for the Wii U was that we wanted to make the Wii U GamePad subscreen a compliment to the main screen.

“So instead of making the screens replaceable or being able to switch them, we really wanted to make sure that players are utilizing both real estate of the screens, in conjunction with each other.”

What do you make of this? Would you have preferred to have the option of off-screen play? Let us know below.
