Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U update will allow region free online

If you think region locking the system was bad enough, Capcom went ahead and took it a steep further by region locking Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U's online mode. Thankfully heads have turned (most likely due to criticism) and an update will be released which should finally allow US/EU(which includes Arab region) compete with each other.
To make the deal sweeter, the update will also players to switch the game to their gamepad, a feature I think all Wii U games should adopt in some form.
And free DLC from time to time. YAY!
The only main gripe I have with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is the lack of a proper online mode for the 3DS version. In order to actually play online players will need use the Wii U's wifi mode. Honestly, I would only play this game online meaning the Wii U version is the only one way to go for me. Hopefully Monster Hunter 4 would finally give players freedom to play online wherever they go...or at least wherever there's a WiFi spot.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate U is expected to come out March 19 for the Wii U and 3DS.
