Switch’s Monster Hunter Rise sells big after launch on multiple platforms

by Ana Lopez

Monster Hunter Rise has sold over 12 million copies in the two years since its release as a Nintendo Switch exclusive, and one year after it came to PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. While Capcom hasn’t broken down the data by platform, it’s clear the game is a success.

For comparison: Monster Hunter World sold 20 million copies in over three and a half years, but was multiplatform (excluding Nintendo) from the start. This made it Capcom’s best-selling game in the company’s history, a milestone it reached much more quickly. Monster Hunter Rise is close to third, just behind Resident Evil 5 and still some distance from its predecessor.

Still, a success is a success, and as our Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak review points out, the DLC support for the game is also excellent. To mark the occasion, Capcom shared artwork depicting Yomogi, an in-game chef, as well as a small statement, which you can read below.

“Monster Hunter Rise has now sold over 12 million copies worldwide, and we couldn’t have done it without you – our amazing Hunters! Thank you so much for your incredible support and passion, we know Kamura is in safe hands with you!”
