Folks, Rise won't just do better than World in Japan.. it will outsell World by end of April/early May. World had a very quick drop and disappeared from the Top 30 by the summer time in Japan. This has to do with the PS4 already being in decline in terms of hardware and not really allowing the game to reach it's real potential. 

World launch - 2 million in Japan

World legs - 1.1 million in Japan

Monster Hunter World Legs:

World had a very strong launch on the PS4, but the legs were not good compared to previous Monster Hunter games in Japan. 

There is enough signs that Rise will outsell the best selling 3DS Monster Hunter game - Monster Hunter 3

TOTAL: 1.244.729

As we can see MH3 managed to sell more in the 10 weeks after launch than World sold lifetime legs

Switch is currently in it's peak year in terms of hardware and software, so by the 10th Week Rise is on the market I anticipate it will be still in the 30K range, as previous 3DS entries didn't really get additional content to push the game's legs. It will be a game that will get a boost at Obon and later Christmas, so it could very easily be over 4 million shipped + digital by the end of the year in Japan alone. This will be inline with the performance of other Switch evergreens in terms of shipped + digital numbers. 

I think everyone is expecting Rise to outsell World in Japan. The Ssitch uservase is 2x the PS4's and its portable, where MH excelled in the past (in Japan).

It'll easily outsell it MHW is easy to circumvent , and I'm gonna reiterate it too sort of , Switch userbase is twice if not more than PS4 already.



Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.
