The Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask 3D was really well anticipated by fans and already within a couple of days of release the game is proving to be more popular in its launch week then A Link Between Worlds. It also appears Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is in the same boat. All this was shared by Satoru Iwata at Nintendo’s finacial meeting (which you can see the graph for above) he had this to say:
This graph compares our preliminary sales data for “The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D” and “Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate” for the release week (three days for the U.S. and two days for Europe) to the counterparts of their previous works: “The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds” and “Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.” The sales of the “Monster Hunter” series in the U.S. are not available in the graph because we have not finished compiling the exact data on the titles, which are published by Capcom, and it was a holiday there yesterday. We have heard from Capcom, however, that the initial sales pace of “Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate,” including the special-edition hardware with the title pre-installed, is more than three times as fast as “Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate” in quick estimation. They both had promising starts thanks to strong pre-orders and their highly-acclaimed gameplay.
