Monster Hunter Rise ships 5 million copies

In a press release this morning, Capcom has announced that Monster Hunter Rise has already shipped over 5 million units worldwide. This follows last week's press release that announced Monster Hunter Rise had shipped over 4 million units in its launch week. With this new number, the Monster Hunter series has officially broken the 70 million units mark.

In Japan, Monster Hunter Rise sold out of stores in its opening week, and also led to a surge in Switch sales. 1.3 million of the 4 million copies sold in Monster Hunter Rise's opening week is attributed to Japan alone.


Monster Hunter Rise released worldwide on March 26th for the Nintendo Switch. It will be released for PC in Q1/Q2 2022. You can check out our review and guides for help in playing this popular game.
