Dead Rising 3 Sells 1.2 Million Units, Monster Hunter 4 Enjoys Great Success
Monster Hunter series sells over 28 million units worldwide.
Capcom has revealed its financial reports for the fiscal year ending on March 31st 2014 and it seems that the Xbox One-exclusive Dead Rising 3, which launched alongside the console in November, managed to sell 1.2 million copies. Sales for the fiscal year stood at ¥102 billion yen (£592 million) for an 8.6 percent while profit came in at ¥3.4 billion (£20 million) for an increase of 15.9 percent/
The real success story is Monster Hunter 4 though which released in September last year and sold 4.1 million units for the 3DS. Capcom spoke about the game’s “explosive popularity with long lines forming at major retailers across the nation since the release date” and how it is now the sixth best-selling game in the company’s history. The entire series has now averaged more than 28 million copies thus far.
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen featured “firm sales”. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies saw its projected sales targets “basically achieved” while DuckTales: Remastered had an “over-performance”. Lost Planet 3’s sales were below expectations sadly.
