The whole Switch isn’t covered in Monster Hunter—just the Switch dock. But for most fans, that should be enough! Guess so, because it’s already sold out on Capcom’s online shop.

So, what was it that scared Nintendo into over-producing?

It’s not like they haven’t had modern examples of stock limitations which could prompt a review, with both amiibos and the NES/Famicom Minis have issues.

It can’t still go all the way back to the Laser Clay shooting...? I can’t recall there being a time when Sega, Microsoft or Sony had problems making hardware available... or at least not at the consistency of Nintendo.
