Imagine how it would have done if Capcom properly stocked inventory. I recall they initially expected to ship 2.85 units by March 2014......

Capcom better bring this game to NA and Europe. Monster Hunter popularity is growing in the West and this would help continue that trend.

Pretty good. Don't know why they didn't ship out more. I mean, the u.s is the u.s, but monster hunter in japan is massive.
