Monster Hunter Stories Sold Just 1/10 as Many Copies as Monster Hunter X at Launch

0

The weekly software and hardware sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and Capcom’s beloved Monster Hunter franchise is topping the charts once again. Monster Hunter Stories, a colorful, RPG-style spin-off to the core series, debuted at number one with over 140,000 units sold. While that might sound like a big number, it’s actually quite disappointing for Capcom, as last year’s Monster Hunter X sold 1.4 million units at launch, or ten copies for every one copy of Monster Hunter Stories sold at launch.

In hardware, PlayStation 4 topped the charts once again with over 31,000 units sold, while 3DS (along with 2DS and the various other models) sold just under 30,000, taking second place. No other hardware was able to move more than 10,000 units for the week. You can check out the full breakdown below!
