Japanese charts: Big debut for Monster Hunter Rise Sender breaks sales through the roof



Monster hunter

Famitsu’s Japanese chart numbers are now in for the week ending March 28, revealing that Monster Hunter Rise has had an – ahem – monstrous launch in Nintendo’s home region.

The game sold a total of 1,302,132 physical copies in the opening weekend, dominated the charts and led the pack by a ridiculous margin. Second place went to Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, which sold another 37,166 physical copies to bring its current lifespan to 592,683.

We have not seen a launch in Japan like this for any game since Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which sold a staggering 1

,880,626 physical copies in the first three days sold in the country.

Here are the top ten (first numbers are this week’s estimated sales, followed by total sales):


  1. [NSW] Monster Hunter Rise (Capcom, 26.03.21) – 1.302.132 (New)
  2. [NSW] Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury (Nintendo, 02/12/21) – 37,166 (592,683)
  3. [NSW] The Quintessential Quintuplets ∬: Summer Memories Also Come in Five (Mages., 25/03/21) – 20 374 (New)
  4. [NSW] Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban! (Konami, 19.11.20) – 20.179 (2,072,296)
  5. [NSW] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo, 28.04.17) – 13,207 (3,751,594)
  6. [NSW] Ring Fit Adventure (Nintendo, 18.10.19) – 12,632 (2479,573)
  7. [NSW] Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Nintendo, 20/03/20) – 11,145 (6,710,861)
  8. [NSW] Minecraft (Microsoft, 21.06.18) – 11.096 (1.872.739)
  9. [PS4] The Quintessential Quintuplets ∬: Summer Memories Also Come in Five (Mages., 03/25/21) – 10 378 (New)
  10. [NSW] Super Smash Bros.Ultimate (Nintendo, 07.07.18) – 10,270 (4,218,939)

The Monster Hunter launch also had a huge knock-on effect in the hardware chart, with sales of both Switch and Switch Lite increasing significantly. The original model saw the biggest promise, which is perhaps to be expected due to the nature of Rise’s games. Here are the week’s numbers, followed by lifetime sales in parentheses:

  1. Switch – 190,133 (15,558,365)
  2. Switch Lite – 77,364 (3,526,983)
  3. PlayStation 5 – 51931 (485476)
  4. PlayStation 5 Digital Edition – 10 364 (94 735)
  5. PlayStation 4 – 2174 (7775.056)
  6. New 2DS LL (including 2DS) – 933 (1,160,124)
  7. Xbox Series S – 847 (9373)
  8. Xbox Series X – 432 (30,636)
  9. PlayStation 4 Pro – 15 (1,575,723)
