Capcom Ships 420,000 Copies Of Monster Hunter 3G

Nintendo RPG News Capcom Action 3DS

On December 10, Japan will witness the release of the next Monster Hunter game: Monster Hunter 3G. With Capcom setting a sales target of at least 1.2 million units, one should expect a plethora of copies around the country. Now, the retailer blog Sinobi has revealed the amount of copies which will hit retailers around Japan when Monster Hunter 3G is finally released on the Nintendo 3DS.

According to the retail blog, Capcom is setting aside 420,000 copies of the game for retailers everywhere. Sinobi has also broken down the figure as in what form the copy will maintain. 300,000 copies will be standard versions of the game. 100,000 copies will be bundled with the infamous Circle Pad. 20,000 copies will be bundled with a Nintendo 3DS.

On the blog, it was noted that Capcom would have the sales of Monster Hunter 3 in mind. That sold like hotcakes within its first two days, selling 540,000 copies. However, Sinobi believes that the number is too low when it considers the recent surge of 3DS sales and the first week sales of Super Mario 3D Land.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
