Monster Hunter XX for Switch ships over 300,000 copies in Asia

Posted on September 8, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

According to a new report from Ace Securities, Monster Hunter XX for Switch has shipped over 300,000 copies across Asia.

The download ratio is said to be high in Japan. Also, Capcom shipped more than 200,000 units in Japan alone.

Of course, shipped differs from sold. Media Create’s last official figure through September 3 is just over 110,000 copies. However, that number does not account for eShop sales.

    So there are 90k copies of MH:XX left in Japan? 300k shipped around Asia. Mmm…

      There were 90k copies last week. It is probably more like 75k now.

    Plus Media Create doesn’t track Amazon sales

      exactly, i just got my import from there..i wonder how many other Switch MH fans did as well here in the US? 1500? 800 ? 45,000?

      • GoldenTriforce

        I did so…

    I’ll buy two copies from eShop TODAY.
    I think eShop is a huge part of switch sales, there should have at least 100k+ more sold on the eshop if not more. I would bet in 200k

      Is that even possible adding 2 of the same item to eshop cart?
      Iirc even of the different region, bought items appears as bought too at other region.

      • Tjnswitch

        no i don’t think it is either, mainly because MHXX is just Jap-eshop and you can’t pay for the same download twice/same eshop account. Rodrigo was either joking or he has TWO Switches therefore wants a digital copy on both (each having different Nintendo Accounts) !

      • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

        No no, I bought one on my switch and one on my wife’s

        • Tjnswitch

          cool :o)

          • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

            You should get it too, the game is awesome!!! we played a lot this weekend

          • Tjnswitch

            I got my Import this past week too, i love it, feels right at home !

          • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

            awesome, want to add me? SW-7773-6996-4674

          • Tjnswitch

            I wish i could but i’m just not there yet (esp. w/ using Translation App.) i’m only 1 and 1/2 hours in / about 2 quest, first one was a Harvest (my favorite) and the 2nd one was Delivery of A Plant & sub-quest mushrooms, i’m still getting familiar with the menu lay outs….do you read Japanese or is it just second nature at this point? How does your wife life to navigate throughout the game? I’m dying to know :o) !

          • Tjnswitch

            ooh and i’ll keep your SW# and give you mine when i get there :o).

          • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

            this was useful to me:
            options menu:
            village translations:

            Also this:

            And this:

          • Tjnswitch

            thank you so much, im gonna print out and pin on some poster board ! I had no idea this stuff was out there in such fashion !

          • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

            I’m glad to help! =D

  • Tjnswitch

    Just got my Import today in the mail, it looks wicked ! I’m not waiting until July 2018 USA timeline (IF AT ALL/..”NOT LIKELY”) to enjoy this definitive version of the game. The physical switch version of this game is quickly becoming a cult-classic and i noticed the price on the Import is starting to climb !!!!! GREAT thing the Switch is reason free, knowing that & never having actual plans to release it here in the States, i’d say Capcom is def. doing the right thing by keeping this gem on the DL. Sorry but i just dont like the way MHworlds looks….its not the same so i imported XX and just download Google Translate Scan App for my phone. Between that and my current knowledge of the game’s menu/icons …it HUNT/craft is on !!!

  • “The download ratio is said to be high in Japan”.

    Considering it’s only available on the Japanese eShop, and the Switch isn’t region locked, I have a feeling not all of the downloads for Monster Hunter XX are by Japanese people.

    Nintendo’s presence in Asian territories outside of Japan isn’t very strong, so shipping 100,000 copies of MHXX Switch in Asian territories outside of Japan is quite impressive

  • nekoknight

    Not bad. Hopefully this will encourage Capcom to develop for the Switch even more.
