Monster Hunter Rise At 13 Million Copies Sold, Sunbreak Expansion At 6 Million

An 300,000 increase from last quarter, with the expansion gaining 600,000 additional units

We’ve got a Monster Hunter Rise update as Capcom has announced on Twitter that the 2021 game has exceeded 13 million copies sold with its expansion of the game; Sunbreak has sold more than six million copies as well, an almost 1:2 attach rate for the DLC release.

It hasn’t been that long since we last heard how the Monster Hunter entry and expansion was selling; earlier this month, it was reported that the game and expansion were at 12.7 million and 5.4 million sold respectfully, as of March 31st, 2023. It’s attractive to the expansion gaining more numbers with 600,000 additional units (double that of Monster Hunter Rise‘s 300,000 number), showcasing that current owners of the main game are looking to get into Monster Hunter Rise‘s expanded content.

Monster Hunter Rise launched exclusively on Nintendo Switch on March 26th, 2021 with a PC Version to follow less than a year later on January 12th, 2022. Afterward, the game’s Sunbreak expansion followed a bit later, realizing for both PC and Nintendo Switch players on June 22nd, 2022. This year, the main game and the expansion finally jumped to the Microsoft Store on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series.

In our review, Bobby said: “Monster Hunter Rise is a must-own. By making the various systems more streamlined and accessible, more players can join the hunt and experience the excitement of tracking down Magnamalo and collecting the reward for slaying said massive beast. Introducing new mechanics like the Wirebug makes traversal fun, adds a new level of mobility the series hasn’t seen before, and adds more layers to encounters if you learn to master its use. There’s so much to like about Monster Hunter Rise that it’s made better by the fact it’s also a perfect portable title that has satisfying combat and a wealth of content to keep you busy for hours; the only slog is the opening tutorial sections, but once you get past that, there’s a new world to discover and save.”
