Within the first two days of its Japanese shelf life, the 3DS’s Monster Hunter 4 managed to move 1.88 million copies. Now, two months later, it’s still chugging along at a rate of about 40,000 per week and having just passed the three million sales milestone. Famitsu expects this success to continue into the holiday season where “the newly-improved MH4 will likely have even more of a performance to show us.”
Often times it seems like publishers hardly even care about anything other than the first week or two of sales, so I think it’s great to know that at least one game, Monster Hunter 4, was able to garner some very significant post-launch success.
