Monster hunter 3 ultimate 3DS review
Content wise, this game is identical to the Wii-U version. The main differences are graphics (of course), camera controls (if you don't own a circle pad pro), and online play. The camera is a bit of a nuisance without the circle pad pro to use the second joystick to move the camera. Otherwise your stuck with having to constantly press L to center the camera. A fix for this is the lock-on feature to aid with fighting monsters. But with the CPP controls are identical and switching between consoles won't confuse your hands. A cool feature for those who own both 3DS and Wii-U versions is the data transfer between them. All you need is the MH3U transfer app on the 3DS and your ready to go. It takes no more than 3 mins from turning on your consoles to transfer data between consoles so you can take your Wii-U profile on the go on your 3DS and transfer back when you get back home. As for online play, the 3DS is held back to local play only but can local play with a Wii-U. Setting up local play with other 3DS' or Wii-U's is easy and quick.
If you have this game on the Wii-U and have a 3DS I highly recommend getting this game for it as well.

I thought you could play the 3DS version online with the Wii U Lan Adaptor?

according to a quick Google search, in order to play the 3DS version online you must own a Wii-U and have a Wii-U LAN adapter. You do not need to own the Wii-U version, only the 3DS version. You cannot create rooms, only join them, so at least one person in a room needs to be playing on the Wii-U. You cannot play the Wii-U version while you relay internetz to the 3DS version. So really it only serves a purpose if you only own the 3DS version, or if you have friends on the 3ds version who want to play with you online and not locally so they share the interetz relay. If your just by yourself and you own both versions, its pointless
