Back in December, Capcom reported that they’d shipped 4 million units of Monster Hunter 4 in Japan, including both retail shipments as well as download sales. In a recent Q&A with investors and analysts, they provided an updated shipment figure.
In reply to a question regarding the current state of Monster Hunter 4, Capcom stated that total shipments of the game are at 4.1 million units as of February 13th, and that the game’s sell-through percentage is “also high”.
Additionally, Capcom noted that they have announced an updated version of the game, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, which will be released in Japan this fall. Since players have the ability to transfer their data to the game from Monster Hunter 4, Capcom will continue to use promotional events and other measures to continue to raise awareness of both titles.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will be released in the west in early 2015.
