With the great performance that the Monster Hunter saga has in Japan, it was difficult to think that its latest installment, Monster Hunter Rise, was not going to devastate that territory. The title sold 5 million copies in just one week and has become one of the main reasons that Capcom has recorded its highest ever profit. However, at the company’s last investor meeting it was admitted that the stock had even exceeded internal expectations.
The success of Monster Hunter Rise is evident in Japan and Asia, although Capcom admits that it believes “ there is still a lot of potential for additional growth in the US and European markets. We will continue to focus on global sales growth with the launch of the PC version. As if that were not enough, the game continues to expand adding new monsters, endings and more news that extend the life of a title that remains at the top of the sales list today.
For the Nintendo Switch game side, Capcom has announced a new Monster Hunter event for next week. Event that will also include news about Monster Hunter Stories 2, and in which the update 3.0 of MH Rise will be shown with new creatures and the end of the story.
