I have seen a lot of people buying a Wii U just to play Monster Hunter, current owners are also very excited.

If successful, will this have a positive impact on Capcom support, and maybe even other third parties?

What do you think?

Good game, I'll be getting it, but no.

It's niche.

Well me and my gf bought Wii U's to play MH3U, what it will do is increase the install base of the console and possibly get more devs on board since it will have a larger player base. I guess that will depend on just how much MH3U helps it grow.

if anyone honestly thinks a 3rd party game is gonna save the wii u there in for a disappointment. Only nintendo can save the system.

I think DQX will do more damage than Monster Hunter especially in Japan.

No but I think Lego City is going to be a surprise hit. I could completely see it becoming an ''evergreen'' title much like Nintendo's first party games.

It sold horribly in Japan which is the only place Monster Hunter ever sells well so no, it wont be the savior.
If you disagree with the views expressed in this post, feel free to put me on ignore.

Those wonderful handsome awesome intelligent people who were going to get the wiiU just for monster hunter probably got one already as soon as the demo came out, so no, I don't think MH3U will be a system seller.

I do think MH3U will break 1 million in its lifetime, which is alright for a 3rd party.
