The numbers come from the period of January 1 through January 28. Considering Monster Hunter: World released worldwide on January 26, that’s three days of digital sales. Below is a look at some of the notable digital sales of January:

  • Monster Hunter: World – 652,614

Famitsu previously shared an estimate of 1.35 million units sold via retail in its first three days, so combined that would put the total at about 2,002,614 units sold in three days after its launch on January 26.
