Monster Hunter 4G has surpassed 2 million shipments in Japan according to Capcom. The publisher announced in a press release today that the open-world action game had shipped more than 2 million units in the region, which included sales from digital eShop cards and the Nintendo eShop, in just five days. It’s a monstrous success for the game as Capcom hopes to level with Monster Hunter 4’s – the previous instalment on the 3DS – sales of 4.1 million units.
Bundled with the New Nintendo 3DS, it was clear Monster Hunter 4G was going to storm the Japanese charts this week, deserving its chart-topping position. In total, the Monster Hunter franchise has now sold more than 31 million units worldwide. But to celebrate the continuous growth of the series, Capcom will also hold new events for the game, including “KariCon – Let’s Go Hunting with MH4G” taking place in five cities across Japan. Additionally, Monster Hunter Festa ’15 will begin in January 2015. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will release for North America and Europe early next year.
