Capcom announced Monster Hunter Rise has shipped five million units worldwide in one week since its release for the Nintendo Switch on March 26. The figure includes digital sales.
This figure is up from four million units shipped in its opening weekend. This means it has shipped another one million units in less than a week.
"Monster Hunter Rise is an all-new Monster Hunter title for Nintendo Switch," reads the press release from Capcom. "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 terrain 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.
"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 5 million units one week since release."
Monster Hunter Rise launched for the Nintendo Switch worldwide on March 26. A PC version is planned for release in early 2022.
