Monster Hunter 4 shipments reach 2 million

Tuesday, 17th September 2013 03:06 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Capcom has pushed out 2 million units of Monster Hunter 4 to Japanese retailers in its first two weeks on sale.

Capcom announced the figure in a press release, describing it as the highest first week shipments for any third-party 3DS title in Japan.

Sales figures have not yet been released, as Monster Hunter 4 launched on September 14; Media Create’s charts for its first week should be out by Wednesday.

Capcom is yet to confirm a western launch for the 3DS exclusive Monster Hunter 4.

Monster Hunter 3, which debuted as a Wii exclusive and later came to 3DS, PS3, PSP and Wii U in multiple re-releases, did come west. Total sales of the series to date have topped 25 million.

Thanks, Gematsu.

    Capcom is in a real spot of bother, with very little money in the bank. Hopefully its a big success for them.
    However, I am not really a fan of their biz direction. For a company with so little cash , they sure pump out lots of exclusives (they have one each of every hardware manufacturer). One has to wonder if they really should do exclusives when they are in such financial stress.

    Great numbers for Capcom as they need the cash.

    And holy crap if they pulled 2 million from MH4 in Japan alone….I wonder what Pokemon X & Y is going to do?

    just think of the millions they would have if they released this on the ps3 in usa/europe could triple that easy.

    @4 They might be better doing simship with PS3/PS4, considering that is just round the corner.
