Capcom has revealed in a press release that the Nintendo Switch timed-exclusive Monster Hunter Rise has now shipped over 7.5 million units. Considering that the Monster Hunter Rise PC release isn’t until January 2022, that is an impressive figure based on Switch copies alone. Capcom announced shortly after launch on 29th March, 2021 that the game had shipped four million units, so it has become quite clear that the game has been a success for both Capcom and Nintendo.

The game was developed to provide a new, accessible Monster Hunter experience that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere and with anyone.
