Total shipments and digital sales for Monster Hunter Rise have surpassed five million units worldwide, Capcom announced.
Monster Hunter Rise launched for Switch on March 26 worldwide and surpassed four million shipments and digital sales on March 29. A PC version is planned for release in early 2022.
In comparison, Monster Hunter: World shipped five million units in the same amount of time. At launch, Monster Hunter: World was available for PlayStation 4 worldwide, and for Xbox One in North America and Europe.
Here is an overview of the game, via Capcom:
Monster Hunter Rise is an all-new Monster Hunter title for Nintendo Switch. The game was developed with Capcom’s proprietary RE ENGINE in order to provide a new, accessible Monster Hunter experience that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere and with anyone. In addition to new monsters and locales, the game provides a completely fresh take on the hunting experience through a host of new, exhilarating hunting actions made possible with the Wirebug. With this, players can traverse rocky cliffs via the Wall Run, soar over craggy terrain and through the air at high speed, or even bind monsters and control them. Further adding to the excitement is the debut of new “canyne” hunting partners called Palamutes, which hunters can ride to quickly navigate the maps. The title garnered critical acclaim following the release of two demos featuring both local and online cooperative play prior to launch, with resulting shipments exceeding five million units one week since release.
