Capcom has been discussing their fiscal year sales results for many games all day. Did their big Wii U game, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate perform well?
They say it is a “smash hit”, something they’ve already said in the past. Today they added that while the game is considered a “hit” that retail sales of the game weren’t as great as one might hope.
Furthermore, Monster Hunter 3 G HD Ver., a launch title we released for the new Wii U console released in December of last year, became a smash hit, though its package software sales plateaued overall.
They aren’t saying the sales of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U were bad, just that they plateaued. I’m enjoying 3 Ultimate on my Wii U right now, online play is a blast. I’m hopeful for a Wii U version of Monster Hunter Online or Monster Hunter 4. It would be a shame if the console doesn’t get another Monster Hunter game since the Game Pad and Miiverse add so much to it.
