Monster Hunter: Rise Follows World Shipping 4 Million Copies In 3 Days
When Monster Hunter: World released back in 2018, it sold quite well, shipping upwards of 5 million copies within just a few days. The title was unique in that it helped expand the reach of the wonderful monster-hunting action to the majority of the Western world. Now that the fanbase is much larger than ever before, it makes sense that the release of Monster Hunter: Rise would follow a similar suit. The latest entry in the franchise has also done quite well in its first few days of release.
Capcom revealed in a recent press release that the company has shipped out a whopping 4 million copies of Monster Hunter: Rise worldwide. This includes both digital and physical copies of the title, an impressive feat considering that Monster Hunter: World launched on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, while Monster Hunter: Rise is only out for Nintendo Switch. Similar to World, Monster Hunter: Rise is set to see a PC port that will open the doors for even more fans to enjoy the game. It’ll be interesting to see just how many copies of the title Capcom will be able to ship before then.
The popularity for the genre and the franchise itself is quite high these days, with a Monster Hunter movie premiering last year, a new Monster Hunter Stories title on the way for later this year, and more. The upcoming Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin is set to launch on July 9th and will feature some elements that can be linked with Rise. The title is sure to see continued success with the addition of Canyne companions and new mobility mechanics. Of course, Capcom isn’t going to sleep on future updates either as Rise is also planning to bring the first major content update sometime in late April with new content such as the return of Apex Rathalos and more.
Monster Hunter Rise is currently available as a Nintendo Switch exclusive, with the PC port set to arrive sometime later next year.
