Following earlier news that the latest in Capcom's Monster Hunter Portable series, Monster Hunter Freedom 2G, had become the fastest selling in the franchise with over 1 million units sold in six days, Capcom has said that the game has now shipped over 1.5 million units in Japan. The last game in the series, Monster Hunter Freedom 2nd, was the second highest selling game of 2007 in Japan, behind only Wii Sports. With the latest tally as of April 8th, Capcom says the franchise has sold a total of 6.8 million copies since the 2004 Monster Hunter debut for the PlayStation 2, with the developer calling it "one of our most valued titles at Capcom." Capcom again has commented in its latest release that it believes "by bringing the Monster Hunter series to multiple platforms, it will help the franchise reach an even greater number of users eager for its unique gameplay.” Capcom has not yet said whether the remark is simply a reference to the forthcoming Wii version, the first on a non-PlayStation console, or perhaps additional multiformat games to come.
