Famitsu is reporting that Monster Hunter 4 has sold 1.875 million copies in only two days on the market in Japan. Additionally, sales of Monster Hunter 4 helped move 3DS consoles, as Nintendo’s handheld moved 298 thousand units in that same two day time frame.
We recently reported that over 2 million copies of Monster Hunter 4 had shipped out to stores, but this is the first report to emerge of the actual staggering sales figures for the title. Capcom went into the launch of its latest Monster Hunter game with high expectations for sales numbers, and it appears the title has delivered, with gamers lining up in droves to get themselves a copy. Unfortunately, there is still no official word on a European or North American release, but with numbers like these, we imagine it will only be a matter of time until that announcement.
