Getting hold of a copy of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate in the UK has been easier said than done since the game launched in March; the popularity of Capcom's beast-slaying epic has resulted in a situation where demand has far outstripped supply.

Thankfully, Nintendo UK has gotten in touch with us this morning to confirm that the situation has changed for the better, and that fresh stock is now available and in the hands of several popular retailers.

Here's what Nintendo UK had to say:

Nintendo UK is pleased to confirm that further stock of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U is now available from retailers including GAME, and Both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the game continue to be available from the Nintendo eShop.

UK players: will you be picking up a copy now that stock is available? Post a comment to tell us.
