I guess we now know the full extent of a home console Monster Hunter game in Japan.

Now, I'm not the most experienced MonHun person, but isn't there a so called 'G Rank' that has yet to be added? Or do you think a PS4 MHWG would not sell at all in Japan?



Around the Network

If it came out on the handheld (Switch), like Capcom did with Monster Hunter 3. (Originally released on the Wii in 2009; G version came out for 3DS in 2011), then yeah, that would sell gangbusters.

That's not what I'm talking about though. I'm saying that we have reached the full extent of what a standalone, home console Monster Hunter game can do in Japan, both in terms of software and hardware.



I'm not sure I follow what you're saying. If MHWG comes out and does well on PS4 would you consider that a 'standalone home console Monster Hunter game' or would you consider it in tandem with MHW since it's basically the same game with some extra content?

In other words, I don't think we've seen the 'full extent' of MHW for PS4 just yet.

Even though its just an updated version, they are usually counted as a seperate game.

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

Well Switch domination as usual.

The MonHun bundle had no effect. No doubt Capcom is dissapointed. Speaking of Capcom. Looks like their sabotage of Megaman on Switch has worked.

29K vs 20K (and another 3K sku not charting) is hardly "worked out". In fact, Switch overperformed.

There were other MM Collection SKUs on PS4 too.

From what i've gathered, Mega Man is more associated with Playstation then Nintendo in Japan because the famicom games didn't do too hot and the Mega Man X series is apparently Playstation exclusive in Japan. I think it did pretty well with that stuff in mind.
