Capcom’s Most Successful Series Turns 15
The Monster Hunter series’ 15th anniversary is this year and developer Capcom has released a video celebrating its history.
The series has had arguably it’s biggest year ever starting last January with the release of Monster Hunter World and the universal success that followed it, becoming the best selling game of the year in Japan, becoming the best selling game in Capcom history, and moving 12 million copies as of last month. The game also recently had a crossover with the perpetually-recommended Witcher 3, and a movie is currently in the works from the folks behind the Resident Evil series, as well as a separate animated film. Last year also saw the release of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch.
