Capcom Co., Ltd. (Capcom) today announced that Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak (Sunbreak, below), the massive premium expansion for Monster Hunter Rise (Rise, below), has sold 5 million units worldwide.

The Monster Hunter series consists of hunting action games that pit players against giant monsters in beautiful natural environments. Beginning with the first title in 2004, the series established a new genre in which players cooperate to hunt ferocious monsters with their friends and has since grown into a global phenomenon with cumulative sales of the series exceeding 88 million units shipped as of September 30, 2022.

Sunbreak is a massive premium expansion for Rise and was released in June 2022. In addition to garnering acclaim for its new locales, monsters and never-before-experienced hunting actions, Sunbreak was further supported with ongoing free title updates and strategic pricing, which contributed to favorable sales growth, driving global sales of the title to over 5 million units.

Capcom remains firmly committed to satisfying the expectations of all game players by leveraging its industry-leading game development capabilities.

Monster Hunter Rise first appeared on Switch in March 2021. Sunbreak, which is the game’s big expansion, followed in June 2022.
