Monster Hunter expansion ships 1M in Japan


No doubt still harboring a grudge about that time Godzilla remorselessly flattened the beautiful city of Tokyo, the people of Japan have made it abundantly clear that they rather enjoy hunting monsters. Capcom has announced that the PSP's Monster Hunter Freedom 2 G -- the G highlighting the fact that it's an expansion to the pictured, G-less mega hit -- has shipped one million copies in the land of the rising hunt.

It has managed to do so in just six days, further enforcing the publisher's belief that "epic battles with giant monsters" can sustain a franchise that has now shifted over 6.3 million copies. The news certainly bodes well for the upcoming Wii iteration.
