Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Seeing Monster Sales

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate was released last week, much to the delight of fans and critics who have given the game high ratings across the board. The new instalment of the franchise refines previous gameplay mechanics and adds vertical depth to the environments, and has been argued as possibly the best entry in the series to date.

The early sales data may agree with this assertion, as global sales for the game have passed three million units sold! This includes eShop sales and download cards, and as a whole this number is a good sign for the future of the series. Capcom seem to be taking notice of the series’ popularity outside of Japan, which certainly gives the company incentive to continue the franchise’s growth.

Here are a few relevant paragraphs from Capcom’s press release today about the game and its sales:

“Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) today announced that global shipments of “Monster Hunter 4G” (including “Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate”) for the Nintendo 3DS™ have surpassed 3 million units since its launch in Japan in October 2014. These shipments include download cards and sales of the download version at the Nintendo eShop.

 

The “Monster Hunter” series is a hunting action game that puts players against giant monsters in a beautiful natural environment. The series has sparked a social craze known as the “Monster Hunter Craze” by introducing a new kind of communication style for players through cooperative play focused on hunting monsters with their friends. The number of fans has increased steadily since the first “Monster Hunter” title made its debut in 2004. The series has grown into a mega-hit with cumulative sales of more than 32 million units as of February 16, 2015.”
