Capcom has announced the latest shipment figures for Monster Hunter: World and Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, as well as the total series shipment to date. Since the inception of the Monster Hunter series worldwide sales have reached 61 million units. Monster Hunter: World is where Capcom finally struck gold with the game shipping over 15 million units since January 2018, and according to Capcom it is the first game in the company’s history to hit that number. The expansion Monster Hunter World: Iceborne also pulled in impressive numbers with 4.1 million units shipped since its release.
Capcom is keen to continue to grow the Monster Hunter franchise outside the games industry. At Universal Studios Japan there is going to be a Monster Hunter XR Walk. There is also a Monster Hunter movie scheduled to release later this year, and you can check out the leaked trailer here. The story of the movie focuses on Lt. Artemis and her soldiers who are transported from our world to the world of monsters. The film is being directed by Paul W.S Anderson and it stars Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, T.I., Ron Perlman, Meagan Good and Diego Boneta.
