Capcom: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate sales 'plateaued overall' on Wii U

Capcom says that while Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate's can be considered a hit that the game's retail sales have 'plateaued overall'. (Capcom, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Wii U)

The game works really well on the gamepad. The only thing is having to go to options to change it every time, but, its a small price to pay for such a good game.

Capcom: Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate sales 'plateaued overall' on Wii U

> The WiiU sales had a nice bump for this weeks MediaCreate, with no new software releases. Courtesy of course due to GoldenWeek albeit there was a boost at MH sales as well.

The moral of the story is that a company really shouldn't be counting on old ports because their other franchises have been tanking lately. I tried MH 3 and I could certainly see why so many either love it or hate it. I care little about graphics it was the overall gameplay I disliked and that is whats important in a game.

That's what happens with a limited install base, sadly. Shame too given how the Wii U version is online. At least it initially sold well. That's better than outright failure I suppose.

This was a positive piece why put a negative spin on it?
PopRocks359  +   663d ago
I'm not trying to put a negative spin on it. It's just a shame that the sales dropped like that. It's great game and deserves to do better. I was just giving my honest thoughts, I really don't see why the eight plus disagrees were necessary.

Hmm, here's a thought capcom. Maybe bring monster hunter to ps3 and 360 too. Never mind that's crazy, why would u want to make more money and expand your audience. Forget I said anything.

Exactly.

The probably get a huge exclusivity cash sum from Nintendo to keep them on their systems. Studios look for the sure bet and guaranteed money rather taking the risk of an unsuccessful release.

They should be happy that people are buying a improved Wii version of the game... Im sure it didnt cost them much to uprez the graphics and add a few Wii U features to it.
