Monster Hunter X, an action-focused spin-off to the main series, just made its debut in Japan, and it’s already pulling in big numbers. The 3DS exclusive sold nearly 1.5 million copies at launch, eclipsing Monster Hunter 4G‘s digital sales in just three days. Japanese video game sales tracker Media Create reports that it managed to sell through 91.84% of its copies at launch. It also surpassed Monster Hunter 4G in terms of preorders, guaranteeing over 936,000 sales before launch. Not a bad start!
