Capcom Sells A Lot Of Monster Hunter And Is Hoping To Sell More


Not too long ago, thinking of playing a Monster Hunter game on a Nintendo handheld was just wishful thinking. These days Capcom made a bet on the Big N’s handheld, one that has apparently payed off. Capcom is reporting that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has shipped 3.4 million units worldwide as of March 31, 2015. It’s still shy of the 3.9 million projected sales goal, but it’s no small number by any stretch of the imagination. It could easily get that number in a few months. As a matter of fact, it may have already.

For Capcom’s new Monster Hunter spinoff series, they’re hoping to see it sell 2.5 million units by March 31, 2016. Judging by the fact it’s an actual RPG and it’s in the very popular Monster Hunter series, they could actually achieve these sales. Hopefully we see them push this game out in the west as well!


Capcom Announces Monster Hunter Explore

A few weeks back, Capcom announced a new Monster Hunter spinoff that looked to take the series in a different direction. Well, Capcom recently announced another Monster Hunter spinoff called Monster Hunter Explore. This time, however, it’s a sequel to a previous spinoff, Monster Hunter Smart, and will be on iOS and Android. Similar to Smart, Explore will feature easier gameplay with simple controls and mechanics. Unlike Smart, this game will feature four player co-op, more social features, and a story.
