Monster Hunter X Expected To Sell 2.5 Million Copies

Capcom has understandably ambitious hopes for Monster Hunter X, the next installment in its massively popular Monster Hunter series. According to Siliconera, Capcom expects to sell 2.5 million copies.

Last month, Capcom said in a financial report that they expected to sell 2.5 million units of a “title related to Monster Hunter” for the Nintendo 3DS by March 31st, 2016. Back then, everyone just figured Capcom was talking about Monster Hunter Stories, as it was the only new Monster Hunter game announced at the time. That wasn’t exactly the case, apparently.

Monster Hunter X will be released in Japan sometime this Winter. A Western release for the game has not been announced as yet. Read more at Siliconera.

Capcom Says Development On Monster Hunter Stories Began Around Five Years Ago

We were all slightly taken by surprise last night when Capcom lifted the lid on Monster Hunter Stories for Nintendo 3DS. It turns out the development on the colourful RPG began around five years ago. Monster Hunter producer Ryozo Tsujimoto says that while the game is different from what many had expected, they are staying true to the deadly world of Monster Hunter.

After having passed the 10th anniversary last year, this is a new challenge for the Monster Hunter series, that we’ve began designing since about five years ago. While staying true to the world of Monster Hunter, and a story that can only be told through an RPG, we’d like to pack it with fun and enjoyment that we can’t even begin to describe with words. It is still in the middle of development, we’d like to offer you a new kind of excitement that is different from the conventional series, and the development staff are working on it in full-spirit.

Thanks, Michelle
