Capcom has announced Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has now shipped over three million copies worldwide. Last October, the company revealed the action-adventure RPG had shipped more than two million copies in Japan, but – with the western release just last week – shipments have now scaled another milestone marker. The Japanese publisher states the numbers achieved include all retail sales, download cards and download sales on the Nintendo 3DS eShop.
While the shipped numbers for North America and Europe were not proactively announced, estimations based on previous sales approximate a loose 250k copies sold within the western regions. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate also had great sales within the UK chart this week and placed fourth, not far behind Nintendo’s beloved remake The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D. If you picked up the game this weekend, let us know if you’re enjoying the hunt in the comment section below.
exclusives matter most.
Also doomed doom doomy domdomoom
Will the Mh4 new 3ds xl be back in stock in north America? I really want to get it..
YES I DO BELIEVE IF SALES ARE GOIN THAT GOOD MH4 WILL BE RIGHT HEAR IN NORTH AMERICA.
Hope you don’t mind but writing in caps for a number of successive comments can be a bit off-putting to some readers. If you can tone it down by just typing in normal lower case, that would be great. :)
Oh Miss Ambassador, I don’t think he tops the list of that…
Thank you Silver -_- those caps are certainly an annoyance.
& people say Capcom & Nintendo are “Doomed”.
Nintendo isn’t close to being doomed. Capcom however…
I feel like monster hunter is helping them out abit.
It seems that MH and SF are the only things that are helping them out.
am living my worst nightmare. i knew i should stay on bed today. :'(
Hmmmmm? its a nightmare because the companies you hate are making profit for what they made and being successful for it? seems legit
you must be doing some godly shit for your oh so profitable life.
He’s just a troll using the same username as an even older troll who died long ago. Just ignore it
what the heck? am the real obinna. am just too lazy to sing in.
Played MH 20 hours already… Too good to be true.
So, it sold one million in the West? That’s pretty cool.
No, probably closer to half a million.
Enjoying the hunt
not enjoying the drop rate for rathalos plate
A lot of farming in store for me…and a big part of me loves it :D. I love the art for the cover image here.
i tried to buy it yesterday but it was sold out. they had about a million copies of pokemon though.
Pre-orders topped 250k.
Hopefully this means i will be able to find one tomorrow!
I still haven’t gotten into MH and $40 is too much to risk at the moment. The fighting/traveling is just too slow paced for me. On another note I’m glad to see others are enjoying the game, and it’s selling well.
Buy the game, you are missing out on one of the greatest franchises ever made. It feels like a Nintendo made game. Now Capcom Bring it to the WiiU.
This is great for us hunters and all video game players.
3 million Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate games shipped. 250 thousand pre-ordered. Nintendo is the only company amongst the big three making profit from all their consoles and games. Now Nintendo is rolling.
Do you even research. The PS4 is selling at a profit stupid
Wait a minute, did capcom not recently announced that MH4 had passed the 3 Million mark in Japan alone last year?
Monster Hunter 4 did reach over 3 mill in Japan but Monster Hunter 4G/Ultimate was only released in october as an enhanced version of the Original.
Ahh that’s what I was thinking, no wonder it seemed obsurd.
So, Capcom. Do this mean your bringing this to the Wii U?…..

I love this franchise & I want to buy it but part of me doesn’t want to because of Crapcom screwing us out of Resident Evil Revelations 2. But if the micro-transactions part is true, Capcom can keep that sequel off Nintendo consoles.
