Monster Hunter X

Monster Hunter X will be getting some Street Fighter felyne costumes, at least in Japan. The costumes, dressing felynes up as Chun-Li and Blanka, will be distributed through June 30th at 7-spots. A regular distribution is expected in the future, and it is unknown if the western release, Monster Hunter Generations, will get these costumes. These costumes are returning features from Monster Hunter 4G.

Monster Hunter X is officially heading west. Today, it was announced during the Nintendo Direct that the 3DS title is being localized as Monster Hunter Generations. It’ll be out this summer.


Capcom recently added a new quest for Monster Hunter X which adds Mega Man gear for your Palico. You can see what this DLC looks like in the video below.

Today, Capcom announced its latest financial results for the nine months of fiscal year ending March 31, 2016. The company’s net sales came in at 57,060 million yen, up 19.3 percent from the same period last year. Operating income rose 9 percent year-over-year to 10,604 million yen and ordinary income is reported at 10,640 million yen, an increase of 5.2 percent from the same term last year. Finally, net income is also up 7.1 percent from the same period last year to 7,006 million yen.

Capcom said that Monster Hunter X “was a major hit”, but The Great Ace Attorney’s sales “remained slow.” Additionally, “sales of repeat titles and digital download contents were firm, particularly in overseas markets, in the Digital Contents business.”

Two Monster Hunter 3DS games are in Capcom’s million sellers list. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate moved another 200,000 copies, and lifetime sales now sit at 4.1 million. Monster Hunter X has sold 3.2 million copies, exceeding Capcom’s forecast of 2.5 million units.

Capcom has shipped three million copies of Monster Hunter X in Japan, the company announced today. That figure includes physical copies sent to stores as well as downloads cards and digital sales on the eShop.

Monster Hunter X’s previous milestone was two million copies shipped. Capcom shared the news on December 2, less than a week after the game launched.

Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam launched in Japan on December 3. During its first few days on the market, the game sold just under 50,000 units (a double pack containing Mario Kart 7 moved another 2,400 copies). Media Create indicates that it sold through just 17.97 percent of its initial shipment.

The sales tracker further points to the game’s slow start by comparing Paper Jam’s debut to two other Mario RPGs on 3DS. Mario & Luigi: Dream Team sold 100,000 copies back in July 2013 with a 25.49 percent sell-through while Paper Mario: Sticker Star launched in December 2012 with initial sales of 129,000 units and a sell through of 33.42 percent.
