As they say, all good things do come to an end.
It’s been reported that Capcom will be officially shutting down the servers for online co-op on April 30 for its Wii title, Monster Hunter Tri. Reasons for doing so mostly have to do with the release of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the 3DS and the Wii U. Despite being a fairly popular title, this kind of transitioning is nothing new. Most companies tend to do this during that strange bridge time between consoles, though some think this is a ploy to get people to buy the newer versions as well.
This also seems to signify the obvious that the Wii is starting to power down, and it’s only a matter of time before we start to speculate what will be the last game released for the system.
