Staggering numbers inside
In news equivalent to the revelation that the Pope is head of the Catholic church, Monster Hunter 3 G has racked up phenomenal sales in its first week in Japan.
The game sold a staggering 471,055 copies in its first two days. As a point of comparison, Super Mario 3D Land accumulated 343,492 sales in its first week.
Monster Hunter had a healthy effect on 3DS hardware sales too, helping the console shift 378,114 units across Japan, even beating the machine's launch week sales of 371,326.
Bring on Monster Hunter 4, then.
