Last week, Capcom released Monster Hunter 4 for the Nintendo 3DS in Japan, and shipments of the game have already topped 2 million copies in its first four days on the market.

 

Capcom say that Monster Hunter 4 managed to move 2 million copies “as early as the fourth day” after its launch. The game launched on Saturday, which means that the 2 million figure was recorded as of today.

 

Capcom did not specify precisely how much the game has sold between retail and digital copies.  What they have mentioned is that 2 million copies of the game have been shipped. Additionally, we know for a fact that the game has sold a significant number of copies via the Nintendo eShop, given that the game is ranked #3 on the eShop all-software chart in Japan.

 

By March 31st, 2014, Capcom hope to ship 2.8 million copies of Monster Hunter 4. Judging by the way sales are going, they’ll probably top that figure within the next few weeks.
