Nintendo UK apologizes for low Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate stock
European president Satoru Shibata says "high demand" for latest role-playing game the reason for limited retail availability; new shipment "hopefully" arriving next week.
Nintendo UK has apologized for a shortage of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimater stock in the region. In a series of tweets (via Eurogamer), Nintendo of Europe president Satoru Shibata explained that "high demand" for the Wii U and 3DS role-playing game has made the title tough to find.
"I'd like to apologize for the current stock shortage due to high demand of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate at retail," Shibata said.
He added that more copies of the Wii U version will "hopefully" hit stores next week, with additional 3DS shipments expected in mid-April.
Shibata pointed out that both versions of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate are available through the eShop.
"Both versions of #MH3U are also available on Nintendo eShop. Again, I sincerely apologize for causing any inconvenience," he said.
No such stock shortage has been reported in North America.
