Good numbers, it's very likely around 2 million copies comes from Japan. 2 million elsewhere is pretty solid still. Over 10 million sold is a given at this point and 15 million plus  might not be far from reality

Read somewhere that it had sold 1,8 million physical in Japan in the first 3 days



Not too far behind Worlds 5m. I wonder how it will sell in the west



The typo in the title kills me.

But yeah, great numbers. Monster Hunter World had shipped 5 million at the same point in time on two platforms.

That is actually similar to Animal Crossing numbers. Given, Monster Hunter will be far more frontloaded. Still a great feat.

Excellent start.
Not quite as high as MH World which shipped 5 mil in 3 days, but that's not shocking or anything.



Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

2021 predictions:

  • Switch - 27m
  • PS5 - 15.5m
  • Xbox Series - 10m

Didn't MHW launch on several platforms while MHR is a single platform launch (or where the launches on the different platforms spaced for MHW)?

I'm curious if we will se a HW sales effekt that is tangible from MHR in Japan.
