Capcom has successfully shipped over 4 million units of the latest title of its flagship brand around the globe in just 3 days of its release.
Capcom released Monster Hunter Rise on the Nintendo Switch on 26th March 2021. Within just 3 days of release, the company successfully crossed the four million mark in units sold. Capcom first introduced us to their unique take on the genre of monster hunting in 2004. The franchise has since then sold 66 million units worldwide.
The world of Monster Hunter lets players join their friends and hunt monsters in an immersive fantasy setting. Monster Hunter Rise is the latest addition to the successful franchise that has been released on Nintendo Switch. The game will also be released on PC in Early 2022.
First Monster Hunter game on the RE engine
Monster Hunter Rise has been developed using Capcom’s famous RE ENGINE. Capcom said that they wanted to create a Monster Hunter experience that is accessible to everyone, anywhere at any given time.
So, what makes Monster Hunter Rise different from its predecessor? Well, the game not only offers new biomes and monsters but also new combat mechanisms. With a new tool called Wirebug, players will be able to indulge in a new hunting experience. Players will be able to pass through rocky cliffs using Wall Run and also travel across craggy terrain and air at high speed. Wirebug also lets players bind and control monsters.
Moreover, the game also debuts a new “cayne” partner called Palamutes that allows players to ride swiftly through the map for faster navigation. These features were introduced to the players through the two demos released by Capcom prior to launch. We believe this was a contributing factor behind the game’s success.
Capcom will also release Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin on July 9th, 2021.
