Monster Hunter 4 is a pretty big success and is quickly approaching 3 million units sold in its lifetime for Japan. However, it already hit another important milestone recently. According to Capcom, the hack and slash, monster murdering romp has sold 4 million units worldwide. And the game is only 3 months old, having released on September 14th. This figure includes both digital downloads as well as retail sales.
Capcom also revealed that the series as a whole has sold 28 million units worldwide. Think about that for a second – Monster Hunter 4 accounts for one-seventh of total sales for the entire series. And it’s still selling like crazy, having shipped 21,969 units in Japan in the past week alone.
As of now, there’s no Western release for the game planned but it will be heading to Korea on December 14th. Stay tuned for more details and we’ll see if Capcom can crack 5 million units sold worldwide by next year.
