Monster Hunter World is the first PS4 game to sell two million copies at retail in Japan, and Media Create expects it to have a long tail.

Following its top-twenty on Wednesday, Media Create followed-up today with its usual weekly analysis.

In terms of new games, the performance of Level-5’s The Snack World: TreJarers seems not to have impressed the analysts, which calls the 35,655 initial sales volume “not no large.”

Monster Hunter World instead is hailed as the first PS4 game to reach two million units sold at retail, and Media Create expects the game to achieve long-lasting sales due to the addition of new content over time and the purchase of new PS4 consoles in the future.

It’ll be certainly interesting to see how far will Capcom manage to push this extremely successful game.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
