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.

Release date: September 8, 2017
Developer: Capcom / Marvelous
To be quite frank, Monster Hunter Stories came as a surprise to me. I didn’t look too much into what the game was before trying it out, because with all my previous Monster Hunter experience I should be fine, right? Upon starting the game, I only knew fragments of information from the announcement trailer. But once my time with Monster Hunter Stories began, the game subverted my expectations, and it became clear that this wasn’t such a bad thing.

New Easter Egg found in Resident Evil 4 more than a decade later
YouTuber Slippy Slides has stumbled upon an interesting Easter Egg in Resident Evil 4. Some sort of mystery person is hidden away in one of the game’s areas, and he’s pretty tough to see normally.
Slippy Slides messed around with Resident Evil 4 a bit and managed to place the camera in a spot that shows this person in a slightly more clearer light. Yet even after that, the model is rather blurry. After going through the game’s files, Slippy Slides found out that it’s actually a 2D texture. Was it a developer who worked on the project way back in the day? Or something else entirely?
