    Last week in Japan, we had a major release in Monster Hunter X for Nintendo 3DS, which saw some significant sales figures after having sold over a whopping 1.5 million units in its first two days of launch according to Famitsu’s trackers.

     

    To compare to how Monster Hunter X stacks up against past Monster Hunter titles, here’s a look at the sales figures for the other titles from the series for 3DS.

     

    • (2011) Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate [3DS] – 521,959

     

    • (2013) Monster Hunter 4 [3DS] – 1,715,060

     

    • (2014) Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate [3DS] – 1,446,289

     

    • (2015) Monster Hunter X [3DS] – 1,488,367

     

    (These numbers are from Media Create, who use different trackers, so they won’t be the same as the ones we get from Famitsu.)

     

    As you can see, Monster Hunter 4 managed to sell the most thus far, at over 1.7 million copies within its first two days of launch; however, keep in mind that Monster Hunter 4 was a brand new generation to the series, whereas Monster Hunter X is considered a spinoff title, and one that will likely connect the gap between Monster Hunter 4 and the next generation title of the series.

     

    It’s also worth noting that Monster Hunter X’s 1,488,367 launch figures from Media Create don’t take into account the sales of Nintendo eShop downloads, and it’s been reported that Monster Hunter X has been seeing shortages across Japan, with eShop downloads outselling Monster Hunter 4G on the Japanese 3DS eShop.
