Total shipments and digital sales for Monster Hunter Rise has surpassed five million units worldwide, Capcom announced.
Monster Hunter Rise launched for Switch on March 26 worldwide and surpassed four million shipments and digital sales on March 29. A PC version is scheduled for release in early 2022.
In comparison, Monster Hunter: World sent five million units at the same time. At launch, Monster Hunter: World was available for PlayStation 4 worldwide, and for Xbox One in North America and Europe.
Here is an overview of the game, via Capcom:
Monster Hunter Rise is a brand new one Monster hunter title for Nintendo Switch. The game was developed with Capcom̵7;s proprietary RE ENGINE to provide a new, accessible Monster hunter experience that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere and with anyone. In addition to new monsters and locations, the game gives a whole new impression of the hunting experience through a number of new, exciting hunting actions that are possible with Wirebug. With this, players can cross rocky cliffs via Wall Run, soar over tough terrain and through the air at high speed, or even tie monsters and control them. Further to the excitement is the debut of new “canyne” hunting partners called Palamutes, which hunters can ride to quickly navigate the maps. The title was critically acclaimed after the release of two demos featuring both local and online collaborative games before launch, with resulting shipments exceeding five million units a week since its release.
