Nintendo UK apologizes for low Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate stock, 'hopefully' more next week

Nintendo UK has taken to Twitter to apologize for the region's shortage of stock for Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

In a series of tweets from the company's official account, Nintendo of Europe president Satoru Shibata noted that the "high demand" for the games have resulted in limited availability at retail and online. He added that new stock for the Wii U version will "hopefully" be available in stores next week, while the 3DS version is expected to be more widely available around the middle of this month.

Shibata ended on a reminder that both versions of the game are available digitally through their respective console eShops.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate launched in Europe on March 22, with special game and hardware bundles available for both the Wii U and 3DS versions.
