UAE, for example. Which is where the English-cover retail version of I Am Setsuna came from.

edit: wait, no that one specifically was from Malaysia

I still don't understand what Capcom is doing with MH on the Switch. Maybe this game will eventually sell through it's 300k shipment but it feels like a cheap throwaway entry compared to MHW. What future does MH have on Switch?

Going by famitsu Japanese shipments would be closer to 250k as of last week

05./01. [NSW] Monster Hunter Double Cross: Nintendo Switch Ver. # <ACT> (Capcom) {2017.08.25} (5.800) - 27.289 / 122.262 <40-60%> (-71%)

(that 40-60% figure is how much of the shipment has been sold)

A re-release of a six month old game that launched after the next mainline entry was announced. These numbers seem pretty good to me.

Ask again when World's sales are known. If World is wildly popular with 4m sales, it could mean they ignore Switch and keep with this dirty deal (rumored but only thing that makes sense to me) with Sony, or it crawls past 1m and MH5 is announced for Switch at year end meeting with Capcom board members

These are pretty good numbers (and absolutely undeserved) for such a release.

World could arrive on Switch because the game is developed with MT Framework (the same of all previous MH), as some Gaffer explained me.
Maybe months after the PS4/XONE/PC release, I don't know.

If World won't arrive on Switch, prepare for a lot of spin-off/side games like MH Stories, for example.

I don't think MH brand will leave Nintendo systems soon.

USF 2 sold less than 500k and was a hit for Capcom...check how much their HD Remasters of Resident Evil and Co. sell on PS4/XBO and see with what numbers per Anno they are satisfied with.

This is a good result prior to the Holidays.

With the cross-platform option it's a late multi platform release of XX. Not the worst idea for the end of the Generations line.

They also have Switch at 80k?!

So yeah, seems like the must have delivered extra shipments since launch for that to be true, although it seems strange to restock when sell through is 60%-80% otherwise?

MH (in Japan) will keep on selling for the forseable -well at least until MHW- so these 200k will be sold and more will be needed.

Do keep in mind that actual sell-through is at 110k-125k atm in Japan out of 200k (or more) shipped, so it would very significant legs to reach 500k in the end.

In 3 months there will be more than twice as manyy Switches in households compared to now. This title was always meant to stick around - it will be the stay best current portable MH solution for a while.

Easily. MH Has grown so much outside of Japan, and Switch is the perfect console for it.

Not really

According to BGC Partners Anvarzadeh (via Takashi Mochizuki), Capcom has set a sales target of 300,000 to 500,000 copies for Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver. in Japan

This has shipped 200k in Japan so far.

It says the expect 300k to 500k in Japan.
And it's far from this, game is clearly over shipped.

These expectations were never confirmed to be directly from Capcom.

And it obv. met those expectations. If they expected to ship 300-500k by 31.March 2018.....being at 300k in less than a months is quite telling.

These numbers actually seem to approach Capcom's expectations (or analyst's expectations, whatever that was). So those are very good numbers just a couple weeks in.

The game is not overshipped. Christ. Have there been huge price slashes and bomba bins yet? No. It's been 2 weeks and retailers expect a long tail.

Compare it to Capcom's own internal expectations, not any other outside perception. They expect 300k-500k shipped in Japan by the end of next March. They're at 200k two weeks in.

That's a very good start on a console with a constantly growing install base and a holiday season coming up.

Not really digital was estimated to be around 28k so your looking at around 150k in two weeks..
Also retailers expect it to have legs....
