Monster Hunter Rise: A Top Weekly Launch According to Capcom!

News Shop Monster Hunter Rise: A Top Weekly Launch According to Capcom! Posted on 05/04/2021 at 11:01 AM Monster Hunter Rise launched on March 26th and is the latest entry to the famous license. As can be expected, the title is a hit with very good distribution numbers. A little more than a week after the publication, the publisher takes stock again. Without revealing the number of copies sold, Capcom announces the worldwide distribution of 5 million copies of Monster Hunter Rise, currently only available on Switch. After the title was distributed over 4 million copies within three days, the calculation is quite simple: in one week Capcom shipped an additional 1 million copies. Capcom underlines a strong increase in sales thanks to “a positive reception of the concept and new gameplay functions”, but also an increased attractiveness of the public thanks to the release of two demos before the release. The Japanese company finally recalls that as of December 31, 2020, the Monster Hunter license had sold 66 million units, including nearly 17 million nothing for Monster Hunter World. Capcom therefore appears to be in a position to calmly prepare the follow-up to Monster Hunter Rise, which in particular will lead to the arrival of content updates starting this month. As a reminder, this new work will be available on PC early next year, building bridges to the RPG Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, which is expected on Switch and PC on July 9, 2021.
