Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for 3DS and Wii U has sold out across UK retailers, but more stock should be arriving next week, Nintendo of Europe boss Satoru Shibata has revealed.

"I'd like to apologise for the current stock shortage due to high demand of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate at retail," Tweeted Shibata.

"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."

The launch of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate - combined with console price cuts - saw Wii U sales more than double for the week, but the launch of Lego City Undercover had little impact on console sales.
