Capcom - Monster Hunter Generations a solid seller, XX off to a promising start, Stories underperformed
Coming from Capcom's latest financial report...
- Monster Hunter XX is "off to a promising start"
- Monster Hunter Generations was a solid seller overseas
- Monster Hunter Stories "underperformed"
I really think Monster Hunter Stories has a chance at being a strong performer stateside. It just has to be marketed right. I know I'm really eager to get in on it!
The following comes from analyst firm, Macquarie Group...
Macquarie ups its Switch sales view from 11m to 14.5m in FY3/18, software attach rate to 2.8x from 1.8x; expects DQ11 Mar/Apr, MH5 Feb/Mar.— Takashi Mochizuki (@mochi_wsj) April 25, 2017
The Macquarie Group has been both spot-on and plain wrong in the past. Take their information with a grain of salt. It'll be interesting to see where their predictions fall in a few months.
Capcom hasn't said if they're bringing the Monster Hunter Stories amiibo to Europe and North America, but the NA boxart above seems to give a hint. As you can see, the amiibo logo is present. Why bother putting that on there if there weren't plans to bring the amiibo lineup as well?
