Capcom's Monster Hunter Rise has shipped four million units worldwide.
The latest installment in the monster-slaying series was released on March 26th, meaning the milestone has been hit within its opening weekend.
Meanwhile, Monster Hunter: World, as pointed out by Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad, shipped five million copies within the same time period.
However, Rise is a Nintendo Switch exclusive, whereas the previous entry in the franchise was released on multiple platforms.
As of December 31st 2020, the Monster Hunter series has shipped 66 million units worldwide. The first game was released in 2004.
Due to the popularity of Capcom's franchise, a movie starring Milla Jovovich was released in Japan on the game's launch day.
It's scheduled for a global release later in 2021.
