Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

So google translating the original source makes his answer:

We plan to sell more than 1 million units of "Monster Hunter Rise", but we are considering that it will be released at the end of March and that the target hardware is limited.

So should be for the FY.

I think what he means by the target hardware being limited is the limited supply for the Switch. I doubt that would have a big effect though, unless there are some massive MH fans out there without a Switch which can't get one before release.

Edit: Also, the question he's answering is about how new releases can affect business in second half of the FY, so its definitely for the FY.



Major Switch Titles Launch Aligned

2021 predictions:

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

Did they mean 1 million in a week ?

So 1 million in 5 days I think, it's a very reasonable prediction tbh

This is obviously about this fiscal year. The title should probably be changed to that.

Monster Hunter Rise releases March 26. So fiscal year is pretty much one week. A million is doable, if it works as well as previous MonHuns. MonHun 4G sold 1.5M opening week in Japan. So one million is a lower ground of expectation, not too low, but perfectly attainable.

my greatest games: 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020

10 years greatest game event!

bets: [peak year] [+], [1], [2], [3], [4]

I'd say 1M is in the bag. I imagine that the Switch will receive a pretty substantial hardware boost as well.



1M first week makes more sense than 1M lifetime for sure.



Signature goes here!

Still lowballing.

Up to 2M should be doable for MH:R first week in Japan.

It's pessimistic, but perfect acceptable. I'm sure this game will also have a higher digital percentage digital compared to previous entries, so 1 million retail and 500k digital first week won't surprise me
