Wouldn't call it amazing but MHS opening at least is a bit better than expected. Hopefully for Capcom it gets decent legs.

monster hunter bombed?
Those look like really low numbers for a Monster Hunter game in Japan.
It's a rpg spinoff targeted at kids (eg. Another Capcom try at creating a cross media franchise after the complete failure of Gaist Crusher). The gameplay and art is totally different, it was never going to do regular MH numbers.

Iirc from the get go Capcom didn't expect the game to break a million.

The real test for Monster Hunter Stories is legs.

The fact that it sold well compared to its dire preorders probably does indicate that they've reached more of a younger, family audience though right?

EDIT:
Not really as it would depend on what their internal budget / projections were.

As obviously the game is not going to sell numbers like the "real" monster hunter games.
All we know is that Capcom lists their expected million sellers and MHS never appeared there.

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

Lol, already a divisive thread of opinions about Monster Hunter.

Count me in the camp of "lets see how the legs are".

Blazblue kinda bombed? Thought Chronophantasma did fairly well but may be confused on that.

Norn9 not very hot though.

MHS's FW numbers dont seem all too impressive considering the push it had.In my perfect world Capcom would've used however much they spent on MHS to make the next mainline MH more content and not have crappy old Gen rehashes.

Looking forward to the inevitable Monster Hunter Stories release in the west next year. Hopefully it doesn't come too late otherwise I'll be busy with my shiny new NX system.

This is weird. I set myself up for MHS super bomba at <100k, given YSO predictions and the preorder situation, and well, that makes me think it did okay...considering the situation. But I somehow feel this is still low numbers. I guess it also depends on its legs and whether it can slowly build a following like Yokai Watch did? It's obvious Capcom put a lot into this so I feel like under 500k LTD would be disappointing.

The game was always going to live and die by it's leg's. Capcom are literally trying to pull off another Yokai watch with it's cross media promotion hoping the growing popularity of the tv series will prolong and maintain the sales of the game. The only time we'll truly know if that worked is the with the trajectory of the sales a number of weeks from now (assuming it survives that long).

Nice numbers for MHS! I hope the anime helps boosts the sales. Though to be honest, the anime feels pretty meh thus far when I watched the first two episodes.

Also a third version of YW3? Highly expected. I wonder how it will fair compared to the first two versions.

That's not terribly bad for MH. I was expecting under 100k, given the last thread's news.

Since it's a kid-focused game, it needs to follow the legs of a successful Level 5 property to make it successful, no? Something like Fantasy Life legs should be good.

2DS started showing some strength after the weak first week. Maybe Game Boy Micro sales level is achievable in the end.

There weren't news, only predictions from YSO and shipment ordered from retailers.

The moving goal posts, lol.

Last week: bomba, flop, bargain bins.
This week: ok but it's all about legs.

Just admit that MHS sold far beyond our predictions. And yes, 140k is a great result, especially in just two days of sales and no digital, it was also sold out at some stores.

Oh and great debut compared to Megaman kiddy spin-offs. MHS might rival some of these LTDs too.

Famitsu:

Apparently the Yo-Kai Watch 3 Sukiyaki is not a full game retail release, and just an expansion. They did this with Busters too, iirc.
So it's one of the promised updates?

I hope this is a free update like they did last year with Busters, and not a new and a retail game.

Edit:


That's good to hear, I guess free too.
i'm reading it as separate release, with the planned free update is still coming to sushi/tempura on same date
