The game has currently been enjoying a steady stream of free crossover DLC based on other Capcom properties.
A Mega Man 11 crossover launches today with the introduction of Mega Man’s robotic dog Rush as Palamute layered armour.
The month before this, the game added Okami’s Amaterasu as a new skin for players’ Palamute, which makes it look like the wolf god.
The first ‘Capcom Collab’ event planned for Monster Hunter Rise was made available on June 18 and let players unlock materials that could be used to dress up their Palico like the Tsukino character from Monster Hunter Stories 2.
The game shipped 4 million units during its first weekend and 5 million units in its first ten days, Capcom claimed, bringing the Monster Hunter series sales to over 70 million units combined. Capcom’s largest series, Resident Evil, has sold just over 100 million units.
The publisher’s previous Monster Hunter title, Monster Hunter World, managed to hit 5 million launch sales during its opening weekend, though that title was released on multiple platforms.
