We already knew that Monster Hunter: World had become Capcom's best-selling game of all time, but the 2018 success story continues as the game has now reached a whopping 12 million units shipped worldwide.
Announced as part of the company's 2018/19 financial results, the statement reads: "Monster Hunter World continued to report strong sales, with total shipments breaking 12 million units, marking a record high for any single title in the company's history." It's an impressive number for a franchise that has only traditionally done well in Japan, but those aren't the only numbers worth making a fuss about.
The recent Resident Evil 2 remake has now shipped over 4 million copies, while Devil May Cry 5 is sitting at 2 million. It's not bad going at all for Capcom, who boast of an 18 billion yen pre-tax profit. That's an increase of 18% when compared to the previous financial report.
Are you happy that Monster Hunter: World has found so much success? Look forward to the Iceborne expansion in the comments below.
