1.5 - 2 million is what the COMG numbers are hinting at in Japan. 3 million in Japan isn't happening. Monster Hunter, even with the QoL updates, still has some pretty niche game-play focused on grinding and slowish combat. I just don't see it as something that will go mainstream in the West, no matter how much advertising there is. 

Here in Germany there is a launch event on youtube from the Rocket Beans

The ratings are also very crucial

Danke, werde ich mir anschauen ;)

I dont think it will sell that well. But i hope it will be enough to keep the franchise away from nintendo handhelds. The shitty hardware never helped the franchise to evolve.

Yeah, all it did was help the franchise exist.

MH is so popular in japan, it still would be a thing when it only stayed on consoles till now. But i am very very glad it made it way back to good consoles, it seems to be the best MH ever. I do not say i dont want any more MH's on handhelds, but please no more main titles.



It's possible if it turns out to be a surprise hit in the west, but I think that will depend quite a lot on how good the game is. In Japan, the PS4 userbase is too small for it too become a huge success.

With the launch of MH, the PS4 should manage to get 6 million owners in Japan. So when every 3rd person will buy MH there, and i am sure they will, means they sell 2 millions in japan alone. And this would be a huge success for a console game in japan



I think it will sell less than MH4U.

Ai Predicting 1.4m FW on PS4 and 2.8m lifetime and 200k FW for Xbox and 600k lifetime.

Wow that's a sad prediction :(

The reason why i made the 8 mio prediction is:

I think many people in the west will play this in the evening @home with friends. Trust me :)



I hope so. Capcom took a step in the right direction with this instalment.



I can see it.



If it comes to the Switch, then sure.



No. Fuck Crapcom. MHXX Switch port will outsell it.
