‘Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate’ Sells Over 3 Million Copies

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

If you’re a third party publisher or developer and you don’t think Nintendo can move units, think again, as the recently released Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has sold over three million copies for the Nintendo 3DS.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is basically the same game as Monster Hunter 4G, which was released to Japan only on October 11 and sold over four million units in six months. Capcom decided to bring the game to the west with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, which has already sold over three million copies since its launch just three days ago on February 13, 2015.

Capcom’s latest action-RPG has helped the Monster Hunter franchise hit cumulative sales of more than 32 million units worldwide since the franchise’s debut over 10 years ago.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has been met with a great deal of critical acclaim, with sites like IGN praising its “intense boss battles, deep combat, and awesome loot.” Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is quite the substantial 3DS offering, which came at the perfect time when Nintendo just launched their new 3DS XL. Hopefully, Capcom’s success with the franchise in the west will warrant a Wii U version (or possibly even a Monster Hunter 5) for the Nintendo Wii U.
