Global Monster Hunter Series Sales Top 100 Million Units
as Franchise Celebrates 20th Anniversary !
– Titles such as Monster Hunter: World and Monster Hunter Rise drive remarkable growth,
contributing to this huge achievement –

Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) today announced that worldwide cumulative sales of the Monster Hunter series surpassed 100 million *1 units.

The Monster Hunter series consists of hunting action games that pit players against giant monsters in beautiful natural environments. After the series created a social phenomenon through play on handheld consoles and solidified its standing as one of Japan’s most beloved game series, it went on to global-brand status with the release of Monster Hunter: World in 2018. This title has consecutively sold over 1 million units each year in the seven years since its release, with sales now totaling over 25 million units worldwide, as it continues to set new Capcom record-highs.*2

Further, in 2021 Capcom released Monster Hunter Rise, followed in 2022 by Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, a massive premium expansion for the base game. Capcom has been promoting wider platform support and long-term worldwide digital sales for these titles, leading both to sell over approximately 2 million units annually since each was released. As a result, cumulative sales of Monster Hunter Rise have surpassed 15 million units while those for Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak have exceeded 8 million units.

In addition to exciting new-title releases such as those above, as well as wide-ranging business development activities that reach beyond games—including movies, food, and merchandise—the announcement of Monster Hunter Wilds, the latest title in the Monster Hunter series that is scheduled for release in 2025, increased interest from game players and helped drive cumulative sales over 100 million units.*1

Capcom has been expanding its user base by bolstering global sales via its digital strategy and promoting long-term sales in more than 230 countries and regions. The company is firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all users by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities in order to create highly entertaining gameplay experiences.
