Monster Hunter: World

While it has been three weeks since the launch of Monster Hunter: World, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has a report on digital sales numbers for the game’s first three days of release in Japan. The magazine reports that Monster Hunter: World sold an estimated 652,614 digital copies from January 26 to 28.

Combined with previously reported retail sales of 1.35 million copies, it would seem that Monster Hunter: World sold more than two million physical and digital units in its first three days of release in Japan.

Monster Hunter: World is available now worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In Japan, it is only available for PlayStation 4. A PC version is due out this fall.
