There’s still more Monster Hunter to come with a post-launch update being released later this month. Spin-off RPG Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin will also be released on Nintendo Switch and PC in July.
As reported in GamesIndustry.Biz, Monster Hunter Rise‘s latest sales figures means the Monster Hunter franchise has achieved lifetime sales of over 70million copies.
This puts it closer to Resident Evil, Capcom’s all-time best-selling franchise with 107million games sold since its debut 25 years ago.
In celebration of Resident Evil‘s 25th anniversary, the upcoming Resident Evil Village will include a mode called Resident Evil Re:Verse. The PvP multiplayer mode features playable characters (and enemies) from across the series.
As confirmed in a Resident Evil April showcase, an open beta for Resident Evil Re:Verse is going live this week from tomorrow (April 8).
Meanwhile, Monster Hunter Rise will also be coming to PC in 2022.
