Monster Hunter Rise edges closer to becoming the top-selling Capcom game on only one platform, more free stuff released


Kamura Pack 2 is out today

The last time we checked in with Capcom's Platinum Title list, Monster Hunter Rise was breaking the top 10.

Now, it's sailed past that and is aiming to settle into the top five. Yep, Rise could feasibly become one of the five top-selling Capcom games of all time, in good Monster Hunter company too: as World has the number one spot by quite a bit (16.8 million units compared to Resident Evil 7's 8.5 million).

According to Capcom, Rise just hit the six million sold mark worldwide, including downloads. Impressive! It's crazy to think about Monster Hunter becoming the new Resident Evil cash cow for the company, especially having been in it since the start, but here we are. Of note, this is one of the few single-system games in the top 10. The vast majority of the games are multiplatform, and of course that will change after Rise hits PC in 2022, but for now, it's a fact.

To celebrate this achievement, conveniently piggybacked off of the announcement of Monster Hunter Rise's 2.0 update, a new item pack is hitting the game today. It contains 30 Mega Potions, 20 Well-done Steaks, 10 Large Barrel Bombs, 5 Mega Demondrugs, and 5 Mega Armorskins. Not bad for free!

You can check out the whole breakdown below. Remember, to grab it you need to head to the Courier in town, right near the main storage chest and the stairs leading to the foundry.
