Monster Hunter Stories - EU box lacks amiibo branding

When we shared the Monster Hunter Stories North American box with you, we noted that the amiibo logo was in place. That not only indicated amiibo support, but it gave fans hope that Capcom's line of gorgeous Monster Hunter Stories amiibo would head stateside as well.

Now, as you can see with the EU box above, the amiibo logo isn't included on the box. Are our friends in the EU going to be left out, is this simply a mistake, or was the amiibo logo on the North American box a mistake to begin with?
