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.
