Capcom sold 4 million copies of Monster Hunter Rise in just 3 days.
Capcom announced that Monster Hunter Rise for Nintendo Switch has shipped 4 million units worldwide. That is a little less than the previous installment of the franchise – Monster Hunter: World, which managed to ship over 5 million copies in the first three days after the release, but it is still a very solid number.
Monster Hunter Rise is an action role-playing game developed and published by Capcom for the Nintendo Switch. It is the sixth mainline installment in the Monster Hunter series after Monster Hunter: World and was released worldwide on March 26, 2021. A Microsoft Windows version is currently in development and is planned for an early 2022 release.
Further, in addition to Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, a new role-playing game scheduled for release on July 9, 2021, that will feature elements that can link with Monster Hunter Rise, Capcom will roll out a variety of initiatives targeting increased brand value. These include the series' first Hollywood film adaptation Monster Hunter, which was released in Japan on March 26, 2021, and range from character merchandising and apparel to collaborations with a diverse field of companies.
