Locked: MH3U WiiU - Keyboard Support?

I've read a few places that the Japanese version of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate does NOT support a USB keyboard. 

Is this true?  If so, why?  

I used a keyboard on the Wii while playng Tri and I thought it was pretty much necessary to communicate effectively. Also, it made chatting with friends/people in lobbies much more easy and fun.

Please include USB Keyboard support in the US release, through patches if you have to.

I don't know off the top of my head, but does the Wii U work with USB Keyboards at all?

@ zentea it is common sense that if you read if from a reliable place, then what they say is usually true. "I've read a few places", so where are the places ? is it a website, an faq forum, a piece of paper you found in the public toilet ? just where that place is already does some sort of confirmation


@deva dont mean to disrespect, but if you are posting on a forum, i m sure you have internet access, so if you dont know the answer to ops question, you can simply search it. since you are a mod, you must know where to look so "I don't know off the top of my head" doesnt really apply here.......

I've read about it on various forums and I'm posting here because ---OMG!!!!!--- it's Capcoms official site and I have a chance to get a real answer that I can rely on.



on a side note:


Diego, nearly every post I see you make is inflammatory in nature, rude, sarcastic, or just mean spirited.


This is probably because of the anonymity that the internet provides, and I hope so, because otherwise it must be pretty lonely being you.  Even if you have "friends", people like you are always alone.  It's all that extreme cynicism and chronic sarcasm ever leads to.

Thanks for the info Kaboom, I don't own a Wii U yet, so I couldn't check.

Well, there you go: the Wii U itself does not support USB keyboard. Like Kaboom said, it seems plausible that they would eventually patch that, but who knows.
For now, we shall wait and see what happens to the hardware.

All that said, you can communicate just fine by using the Wii U GamePad touch screen keyboard.

I've asked the product manager to look into this. We'll have some "other news" on communications methods supported for MHTU to share soon though. 


EDIT -  I've just been told by the PM that there will be a day 1 update that will add functionality to support USB keyboards for chat (naturally, there's also a soft keyboard for those to use... and other features we'll talk about later).
