Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has sold over 3m copies to retailers worldwide, Capcom has announced.


The series has been massively popular in Japan since its inception in 2004, though it's historically failed to spark much interest in the west. It's doing better this time around as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate placed fourth in UK games sales last week where it saw a 95 per cent increase over its predecessor, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

Eurogamer Monster Hunter expert Dan Pearson absolutely loved this latest entry which he called "the series at its approachable best" in his Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate review.
