Forums - Sales Discussion - MHW sold more in Germany in its first week than MH4U did in its first year

From resetera 

"BIU award show MHW > 100k in its first week of sales. MH4U did not reach this milestone in its first 12 months of sales. 


This continues the growing trend of a big over performance for the series in EU relative to the 3DS entry, MH4U.

UK opening was estimated to be 3x as much and Spain was more than 2x"

 

Just further highlights the incredible growth of the series in europe and this doesn't even include digital.

*than, not then. They're different words, meaning different things.

Impressive figures. Although I think it speaks more to how poorly MH4U did than MHW doing well.

Very impressive!
Congratulations and good work @ Sony/Capcom. The worldwide Monster Hunter Games-conclusion:
# Best ratings of all MH-Games
# best sales figures ever
# best graphics of all MH games

And the PS4 sales figures are very strong, especially in japan. Now, i'm especially looking forward to the Resident Evil 2 remake.

Game Awards 2020: Millions of Gamers have decided, "The Last of Us 2" is Game of the Year and has received the most Awards :) And my respect for Ghost of Tsushima!!

Not surprising. Europe is Sonyland by any means, being on PS4 clearly helped. That doesn't mean that the entry itself isn't doing well - it does and that is great. And whatever the explanation, this is a great achievement.

Doesn't need to do better in Japan. They have succeeded in making the game sell extremely well in the West.

 

I want to see what a switch my can do (or multiplatform) with the marketing budget as mhw



I mean over 6 million copies vs what? 2-3 million in Japan only for the other entries is a huge improvement,and the game is likely to sell another couple million copies as well

Well that's not surprising considering MHW outshipped MH4U in it's first week globally. (MH4U sold 4.2m)

Only MH games left above world are MH:X (3DS+Switch) which sits at 6.45m and MH:F2 (PSP) which sold 6.2m. So yeah World is easily going to be the best selling title in the series.

Edit: MH:F2 didn't sell 6.2m, that figure was combining MH:F2 (2.4m) and MH:FU (3.8m). So MH:X is the only one left.

Not bad for a "spinoff"
