All right, so right now the hottest game title on the market happens to be GTA 5, no doubt about it. In fact, the game itself has already pulled in a whopping $800 million (!) in sales since its launch, taking less than 24 hours to do so. That certainly is pretty interesting, but Japan has some records of its own to boast about. In fact, the recently released Monster Hunter 4 has also moved a whopping 1,715,060 retail copies in just two days.
Of course, this just goes to show just how crazy Japanese can get about their own gaming franchises. I do wonder how will Rockstar’s latest title fare in the Land of the Rising Sun, considering the game has yet to be released in that part of the world just yet, but it would be really interesting to see how GTA 5 stacks up against Monster Hunter 4 in that part of the world. If one were to combine both physical and digital sales figures of Monster Hunter 4 in Japan, it would exceed two million purchases across four days. This would surely surprise Capcom, as their original estimate stood at selling 2.8 million copies by March 31, 2014. I guess this has shattered all expectations, and it definitely rings in some good news for the publisher.
