Monster Hunter 4 shipments rise to 4 million

Monster Hunter 4 continues to capture big numbers in Japan, with shipments (including downloadable sales) passing the 4 million mark at swift pace. The 3DS action-RPG gobbled up 3 million shipments a month after hitting Japan's retail shelves, and took just seven weeks to add another million to that burgeoning figure.

Japan's love affair with all things Monster Hunter is evidenced by the series' total sales surpassing 28 million, but how many of those sales come from outside the country remains unclear. As does the matter of Monster Hunter 4 heading west or not; Capcom is still keeping shush about that.
