Monster Hunter Rise shipped 4 million units on its launch week
Capcom has published a new press release, confirming that Monster Hunter Rise has shipped 4 million units worldwide on its launch week.
In the same press release, Capcom also noted that the total shipment number of the whole Monster Hunter series had exceeded 66 million units as of the end of 2020. With today's announcement, it is now safe to say that the new cumulative number has broken through the 70 million units mark.
The previous mainline title, Monster Hunter World, shipped 5 million units within the same period on the first 3 days after it was released on January 26, 2018. Note that while Rise is only released on Nintendo Switch, World was released for multiple console platforms in PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Both games would also eventually come to PC at a later date. The PC version of Monster Hunter World, launched in August 2018, also became the largest Japanese game on Steam. Monster Hunter Rise is also expected to have a PC version released in early 2022.
