Will Monster Hunter World be the game to finally cement the series in the West? The big-bucks PS4 and Xbox One instalment is off to a strong start, recording a series-best UK launch, topping the UK retail video game chart.
GfK Chart-Track counted “far higher” week-one sales for Monster Hunter World than any other Monster Hunter game – the previous leader being 3DS game Monster Hunter Generations.
Dragon Ball – another long-running series – also scored a UK-chart personal best, with new instalment Dragon Ball FighterZ debuting at number two. Its previous highest debut had been third place in 2015 with Dragon Ball Xenoverse.
