Along with strong profits thanks to the success of Devil May Cry 5 and Resident Evil 2, Capcom also credited its action RPG Monster Hunter World with continued impressive sales. In its recent financial report for the fiscal year quarter ending March 31st, the company said that Monster Hunter World “maintained its popularity” after last year’s success. This was thanks to its user base expanding and the PC version boosting profits thanks to its solid performance.

Even Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch has done fairly well outside of Japan, with Capcom reporting “robust sales.” Mega Man 11 and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary were also noted as performing well, while the “enduring popularity” of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard led to increased sales too. Overall, it’s been a pretty good year for Capcom.

Monster Hunter World had shipped 12 million units worldwide as of February 2019, a number which Capcom hasn’t offered an update on. It continues to see updates, with Arch-Tempered Nergigante scheduled for this Spring. A major expansion, Iceborne, with a new continent, new quest rank, armour, and much more is also slated to arrive in Autumn 2019.
