Monster Hunter Rise Sells 5 Million Units Worldwide

The newly-launched game finds early success

Releasing just a bit over a week ago, Monster Hunter Rise has taken the world by storm. It is the sixth mainline installment in the series and is nothing like the fans of Monster Hunter have seen before. The influence of Japanese food and architecture is found heavily incorporated in the game. Moreover, the gameplay has also seen significant changes, and traversing around in Monster Hunter Rise has been reinvigorated from the ground up.

In addition, the monsters in this iteration are based on Yokai and Oni. This is something that relates to the critically acclaimed Nioh series and elements of these demonic and spiritual realms basically trace back to Japanese legends.

Perhaps it’s the Japan-inspired folklore or the enticing gameplay that has made this action RPG find early success. Either way, Monster Hunter Rise has sold over 5 million units for Nintendo Switch up until now ever since its release on April 26, 2021. Capcom IR released this information to the general public in a press release, that you can check yourself out here.
