Monster Hunter 4 sets franchise milestone | One million units shipped
Capcom’s Monster Hunter 4 set a new franchise record as the fastest selling Monster Hunter game in North America and Europe. The action-RPG has sold a combined one million units between retail and digital sales since its initial release just two months ago (February 13) on the Nintendo 3DS.
Not only has the game now become the fastest selling Monster Hunter in the west, it is also the holder of the highest Metascore of any game in the franchise. The combination of quality gameplay and the new multiplayer experience on portable systems has been greatly received by fans and critics alike.
As a token of appreciation, the developer has elected to offer a free Nintendo 3DS Monster Hunter styled-theme. The custom theme will be available for download in May.
