The Monster Hunter series has been a phenomenal success in Japan and has a large fanbase in Western territories too. Nintendo of Europe appears to have underestimated just how popular new release Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate would be in the UK as many retailers are reporting being sold out of the game on both Wii U and 3DS.
Earlier this week Nintendo of Europe president Satoru Shibata assured fans via the Nintendo UK Twitter account that more stock is on its way, writing:
“I’d like to apologise for the current stock shortage due to high demand of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate at retail. New #MH3U stock will hopefully be available in shops next week for Wii U and mid April for Nintendo 3DS. Both versions of #MH3U are also available on Nintendo eShop. Again, I sincerely apologise for causing any inconvenience.”
