Monster Hunter 3 Tri isn't even out yet, but Capcom is already bracing itself for massive sales figures.
So massive, they've already shipped 1 million copies of the game in Japan According to the publisher, that's the highest pre-release shipment for a third-party Wii game in Japan.
Considering the monstrous success of the series in Japan, its black Wii bundle and people already lining up to pick up the latest entry, maybe 1,000,000 copies shipped is conservative?
This series has always been popular in Japan hasn't it?
I'd like to see it come over here. Its been previewed by UK games magazines. Hopefully that suggests it is actually coming over to the EU (?)
This game look awesome. I'm going to FIRST in line when it comes out.
Edit: So close...
That's great and everything but Japan's MH3 sales don't matter at all.
I wonder if it's a good idea, MH wasn't big on consoles...
ive never played the series b4 but the screens sure look nice
i am not shocked with how huge monster hunter is in japan. maybe this will help it get localized for na
I can't wait for it. Local co-op is going to be a blast!
This game will be awesome!
It's not a matter of if but when we'll see Monster Hunter 3 here in the west. Capcom has already stated that it'll be released here.
wow! I doubt it will sell as much as DQ9 <.< but that's a lot anyhoo..
wonder when it comes out in the us?
I can't wait for it. Hopefully it does well in the West.
i don't think 1 million will be enough...
I hope it sells well, simply because...well, if they only sell like, 10 units, that'd be a lot of money down the tube.
I might give this one a rent when it comes out in the States. I never liked the Monster Hunters series, but I'll admit, the sloppy controls played a rather part in hindering my enjoyment of them. Who knows, maybe the move to a new console might do this series some good, eh?
Hopefully its anticipated success in Japan will make CAPCOM speed up its release to other regions.
If this fails, levees going to break... i mean, if this game fails, God help us all.
I'm going to buy it even though I cant play disc games!
Wow...that's a lot of units, hopefully this will come stateside soon.
