Ever since more or less becoming a Nintendo handheld exclusive, it seems that the Monster Hunter series has been gradually finding better footing in the West. The series has always been a home run in Japan, but Capcom has been tirelessly working to garner similar results overseas.
According to Capcom, Monster Hunter Generations has moved 4.1 million units worldwide, with 800,000 of those sales coming from the last six months. Bear in mind that Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate took eight months to pass the 4 million mark once it launched in the West, while it took Generations only three. MH4U was also the first game to pass the 1 million mark in the West alone, but it’s looking like Generations is set to reach that as well.
