Monster Hunter Rise, the latest game in Capcom’s long-running series, has sold four million copies in its opening weekend, the company itself has announced.
The new Monster Hunter game is currently only available on Nintendo Switch, which means that all copies sold so far are for that platform only. For comparison, Monster Hunter World sold five million copies in three days, but on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platforms.
As of December 31, 2020, Capcom had sold 66 million units of Monster Hunter games in the entire history of the series. Taking these new figures into account, the series has already sold more than 70 million copies.
In any case, 2021 is a great year for Monster Hunter; Rise was launched to rave reviews, and a second game, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, will be released for Nintendo Switch on July 9, 2021. In addition, this year we have seen how Monster Hunter has been adapted into a movie by Hollywood. Additionally, in early 2022, Monster Hunter Rise will also be coming to PC.
