Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin launched just 11 days ago as of writing, and in that short time it’s already shipped a whopping number of copies – over a million, according to developer and publisher Capcom.

“The numbers are in!” the studio has posted on the turn-based, critter-collectin’ RPG game’s Twitter channel. “Monster Hunter Stories 2 has shipped over one million units worldwide! Thank you, new Riders, for embarking on this adventure with us!” That’s a pretty enormous number so far and, if sales continue at that pace, we could see it start rising up Capcom’s list of its all-time best-selling games soon.

In case you’re new to the game, Monster Hunter Stories 2 – a spin-off of the enormously successful main Monster Hunter series and its latest PC release – is all about becoming a Rider who has to travel a painterly world and track down ‘monsties’ to battle alongside. In our Monster Hunter Stories 2 review, Jordan scored it a very healthy eight out of ten, summarising that “while the repetitiveness of its turn-based battle system can become frustrating, Monster Hunter Stories 2 is more than a novel twist on the main series’ core components.”

This announcement marks another big sales milestone Capcom’s seen in recent weeks. Earlier this month, the studio revealed that the latest big hit in its major horror games series, Resident Evil Village, had hit 4.5 million units sold in the two months since its launch. Phwoar.
