Monster Hunter X Smashes the Japanese Charts, 3DS Sales Soar by 100,000

0

The weekly software and hardware sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was a huge week for Monster Hunter X and Nintendo 3DS. The action-focused spin-off of Capcom’s popular series managed to pass up Monster Hunter 4G/Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate‘s digital sales in just three days, and it sold nearly 1.5 million total copies in its opening week in Japan. No other game (new or returning) managed to sell more than 25,000 units.

Despite the fact that several
Monster Hunter games have already been released on 3DS, Monster Hunter X proved to be a massive system seller, as 3DS sales jumped by nearly 100,000 over last week. The spike could also be partially contributed to the holiday season as well (Wii U also saw a sales spike despite having no big-sellers this week), but Sony’s PlayStation 4 actually saw declining week-over-week sales, while Vita received only a very small boost. You can check out the full breakdown below.
