As with other Capcom press releases, this number includes both physical shipments and digital sales. Monster Hunter World, which originally released on PS4 and Xbox One before arriving on PC a year later, managed to ship five million copies within a similar time frame.
Considering that Monster Hunter Rise is only available on Switch at the moment — its PC release is scheduled for early 2022 — reaching four million shipments after three days is undeniably impressive.
According to Capcom, the Monster Hunter series as a whole has managed to top 66 million units shipped as of December 31, 2020. It’ll be interesting to see how much higher this number climbs during Rise’s lifespan.
