Monster Hunter World has been throwing haymakers left and right for Capcom, regularly overcoming sales milestones for the developer. Consider the most important milestone of all conquered as of today, as Monster Hunter World becomes the best-selling Capcom game of all time.
Eurogamer reports that Monster Hunter World current sits at 7.5 million copies shipped since its launch in January and this is well before the PC version releases this fall. The game has already earned the label of “fasting selling” for Capcom and, even with a significant drop-off after three months, the overall sales of the game are going to receive a major shot in the arm when it launches on PC. Another developer would like to bring it to another platform as well.
IGN caught wind of a tweet showing that Iron Galaxy, the studio responsible for somehow porting Bethesda’s massive Skyrim to the Nintendo Switch, is interested in an opportunity to bring Capcom's big hit to the hybrid console.
Dear @monsterhunter team at Capcom - we understand that porting the game to Nintendo Switch is challenging (https://t.co/0JrAIQgcft) but this is exactly what @IToTheG does. Give us a shot & we won’t let you down ;)— Adam Boyes (@amboyes) March 3, 2018
The Monster Hunter franchise is no stranger to Nintendo platforms, having made appearances on the Wii, Wii U, and 3DS, so this potential outcome isn’t far-fetched at all. With Monster Hunter World performing so admirably for the company, maybe we’ll get a response sooner rather than later and add to the Switch’s solid library. We’ll report as more information is made available. No matter where you play the game, keep our Monster Hunter World Guide and Walkthrough bookmarked.
