Nintendo of Europe apologizes for Monster Hunter shortage
Things haven’t been going so well over in Europe for Nintendo. Many Europeans are upset that Scribblenauts Unlimited has still not been released in the region and exclusive Nintendo titles like Fire Emblem: Awakening and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate have seen long delays and massive shortages. Satoru Shibata, the president of Nintendo Europe, has taken note of the situation and issued an apology on Twitter.
[Shibata] I’d like to apologise for the current stock shortage due to high demand of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate at retail. (1/3)

Of course Shibata directs users to the Wii U and 3DS eShops, where both games are currently available to purchase. This doesn’t address the fact that some retailers often offer a discount on purchasing both games together, so customers lose out on saving money. Still, we hope Nintendo Europe can get this all sorted out. You guys have seen too many delays as it is.
