MHW sells 1.35 million copies at launch in Japan, > 2 million with Digital; PS4 140k

Forums - Sales Discussion - MHW sells 1.35 million copies at launch in Japan, > 2 million with Digital; PS4 140k

If digital sell through is right, then MHW is the second 2 millions console game seller in Japan since 2010, the first being Splatoon 2. Pretty crazy that the two series are dominating Japan.

Digital is really high in the West, but when I look at the numbers from Famitsu for other games, it seems to be 10-15%.

You may be right, I hadn’t looked at digital ratios specifically in Japan.

It seems digital is trending upwards though, so it may be possible.

Japan is the area where digital growth is the slowest. But, this is MH we're talking about. If it sold out at retail, then it's not surprisingly the digital attachment would be huge.



Incredibly high digital sales, i wonder how much is attributed to choice or lack of shipment...

...Not that it matters anyways, these are amazing sales for sn amazing game that i, as well as many others, are thoroughly enjoying.

When was the last time PS4 sold that much in Japan? I'm curious to see the legs this has.

Launch. This is the second best week for PS4 in Japan.

Deny not the power of Monster Hunter, my children



Fairly sure its wrong now. 2m shipped to Asia as a whole is my assumption. 650k digital is unheard of for Japan, as well as the 2m out of ~6m attach ratio for a PS game.

There is always the first time. 1.35 FW sales were also not expected by the majority of the people when this was announced. 140k of PS4 so late in gen in non-holiday period is also amazing. 

 

The day D3 Publisher announced Earth Defense Force 5 crossed 300,000 sales, Media Create showed its total at 212,000, meaning 88,000 were digital sales (~30%). If Earth Defense Force 5 can do 88,000, I think expecting 650k from Monster Hunter: World is reasonable especially considering the wide spread shortages and first week sales.

Holy cow.. that's a bigger debut than Portable 3rd and MH4, isn't it?

Edit: 140k hardware is great also. That's 170k when combined with the 30k sales of pro bundle from December.

Above 2 million with Digital according to Famitsu

That is fine, but not great even great including digital. So the japanese base is more or less maintained. Lifetime sales will be strongly dependent on the legs, but that should be fine, it is MonHun after all.

FW and LT in Japan for previous titles:

MH Freedom Unite (PSP): 0.86M (4.13M LT)

MF Freedom 3 (PSP): 1.97M  (4.87M)

MH4 (3DS): 1.78M (3.44M)

MHX (3DS): 1.49M (2.82M)

Why you will not convince me I have chosen bad consoles. / awesome Miiverse art / my greatest games list

Bet with platformmaster918 and ethomaz about PS3 overtaking Wii in total sales.

Predictions: Switch / Switch / Switch / MHWorld / GOW > BOTW / Switch vs. XB1 in the US
