What is that bug thing!? If there was a weapon class with integrated bug-friend functionality (or IBFF) I would totally use that weapon! I think the weapon used by the dude in the trailer is just the new bo/staff though. So I'm still curious about this prominently featured bug! I could look it up, sure, but I want to minimize spoilers.
Hard to say if I would really need this on Wii U over 3DS. hmmm, right now I'm 100% going to get this on 3DS. But, I guess I'll have to think about whether or not I would want to hold out for a Wii U version that may never come. Plus, there are certainly advantages to having a game like MH on the go!
