Monster Hunter Rise achieves Nintendo Switch’s third-best sales debut ever in Japan

It seems that Monster Hunter Rise continues to break sales records. This time, we’ve got some really impressive information from Japan.

According to what’s been shared, the title is already the third-best Nintendo Switch launch in the country in the console’s history. It’s only beaten by Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Additionally, Monster Hunter Rise is the best-selling title within the month of March within Japan, outside of being the third-best retail launch for the Nintendo Switch. Second place was Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, which only sold roughly 169,899 copies in comparison to Monster Hunter Rise‘s 1.3 million copies.

As it stands, Monster Hunter Rise seems to be a certified hit, with global sales almost breaking even with Monster Hunter World during its initial global release. During the first three days of its release, the title had shipped over 4 million units worldwide. Additionally, Monster Hunter Rise has officially sold over 5 million copies worldwide on the Nintendo Switch alone. A PC port of the game was announced and is scheduled to release in early 2022.
