Did you hear that Monster Hunter D Wii sold something around 100,000 copies in its first day of release in Japan? Crazy sales for a Wii port of a PSP port of a PS2 game.
Chances are that these sales have less to do with Japan's interest in a four-year-old PS2 game, and more to do with the demo of Monster Hunter Tri that comes with it. Ever since last year's Tokyo Game Show, it's been clear that Monster Hunter Tri may be the game in Japan for 2009. Though I haven't played the demo myself (yet), I'm extremely curious about it. Capcom rarely fails to please in the third-person action game department, and the game's graphics are pretty much the best the Wii has seen yet.
There are few videos of the game after the jump, all of which involve prehistoric creatures getting badly beaten with blunt objects, sometimes underwater.
Are you ready to pre-order yet?
