Early figures are in for Monster Hunter 4, and Capcom, who predicted astronomic sales for the title, were right on the mark, as they have now announced that the game has broken 2 million copies shipped out in only its first four days on the market. The title also hit a milestone for the Monster Hunter series, bringing series sales to over 25 million. Additionally, reports indicate that Monster Hunter 4 is currently third on Japan’s eshop all-software chart.
The 3DS exclusive release of Monster Hunter 4 in Japan has been marked by great reviews and long lines of gamers waiting to get their hands on a copy. With this much momentum for an exclusive 3DS title, Iwata’s sales goals for Nintendo’s handheld should be well within reach.
