It’s been a banner year for Capcom so far, much in part thanks to the enormous success of Resident Evil Village, which launched earlier in May. The game has since sold over 4million units worldwide, according to the developer, well surpassing the Resident Evil 3 Remake which reportedly sold a cumulative 3.6million units as of January this year.
The Nintendo Switch-exclusive Monster Hunter Rise has also moved equally as impressive numbers since its release in March. The game shipped over 5million units within the first two weeks of its release, following a successful launch weekend where it moved 4million copies.
Moreover Monster Hunter Rise also received a glowing five-star review from NME’s Luke Shaw, who described the game as “a perfect blend of personality and challenge”.
“Unparalleled movement, inventive weapon changes, gorgeous locals, and a setting inspired by Japanese folklore all blend together to make this a truly wonderful experience,” he added. “Given that the game will only get better with time, it’s easy to call Rise what it is: The greatest Monster Hunter yet.”
