Monster Hunter 4 has launched in Japan and Capcom has released preliminary sales numbers for the title. In its first four days on the market, the title has sold a staggering 2 million copies. This is a milestone for the series, bringing total sales of all Monster Hunter titles to over 25 million. According to reports, Monster Hunter 4 is currently third on Japan’s eShop.

With such great reviews for the Japanese version of the game and phenomenal sales, hopefully Capcom will soon announce a Western release for the title for 3DS owners and perhaps Wii U owners as well.

    That’s crazy…

    Hopefully it’ll come out with an HD release on Wii U.

    Not just upscaled pls capcom.

    • HD = Good

      Tri Ultimate Upscaled = Okay

      • Fred

        Even though it would take longer? Are you willing to wait?

        • Ony

          We are already waiting for the 3DS version so… yes? :]

        • As a MH and Nintendo fan, you get used to waiting.

    • Baum 「ツリー」

      I want MH4 and a NEW game on Wii U..

      • Saul Rivera

        At least in japan the Wii U is getting Monster Hunter Frontier G

        • Baum 「ツリー」

          Yeah, but that’s still not the game I’m hoping for, because Frontier’ll be just upscaled too…

          The game’s pretty old after all.

  • Fuckin right it did.

  • CEObrainz

    The 3DS get’s all the love, it’s a shame the Wii U can’t jump on to the bandwagon yet….

    • it’s hopping. just not full on jumping. it’ll get there.

  • Mario


    • Shota

      i know right. like gta v it blew up my mind

  • Paul

    I heard they had shipped 2 million…selling that much seems a little much…

    • Link

      Not really, considering the popularity of MH in Japan. I mean DQVII opened up to nearly a million first week sales, and that was just a remake.

    • Jon

      in the first two days of sales, they sold 1.7 million so in 4, over 2 million is easy. Source is here if you don’t believe.

      • Paul

        It’s believable. I was just speculating. I want nothing but for this game to succeed.

  • Kriffix

    I just bought my copy! It’s sold out like everywhere over here, but I just happened to overhear an announcement at Tsutaya that said they got new stock in! Probably didn’t last even an hour!

  • Jon

    and yet people still try to tell us that the Vita is better…… lol

  • Arthur Jarret

    And to celebrate this major success and now knowing they made the right choice partnering with Nintendo for this franchise, what does Capcom do?

  • Saul Rivera

    Well the Wii U is getting Monster Hunter Frontier G along the PS3 and Vita..and I think even the 360 is getting a version too

    Edit:Here’s a trailer for it

  • The game looks so good for a 3Ds title, one of the best looking games I’ve seen on 3DS thusfar. pls announce western release asap 😀 Sales are pretty impressive as well damn.
