The game has been around since PlayStation 2 but it has finally found success in Japan and has gone on to be the creators all-time best selling game beating the likes of 'Resident Evil', 'Mega Man', 'Dead Rising' and 'Street Fighter'.

Capcom announced it had shipping 7.5m copies of the game to retailers as well as digital downloads despite only currently being available for PlayStation 4 and XBox One users, Eurogamer.com reported.

The PC version is still to launch but has been slated for autumn release.

Capcom recently said they believe a Nintendo Switch edition of 'Monster Hunter: World' would be "difficult".

The gaming giants released the action role-playing game for PlayStation 4 and XBox One in January with a PC release set to take place later this year, but fans may be disappointed to hear that it's unlikely the game will get a port for Nintendo's newest console.

According to a translation by Kotaku.com, Capcom president Haruhiro Tsujimoto said: "We're aware of that request [to bring the game to the Switch]. However, taking into account various conditions, bringing 'Monster Hunter: World' now for release is difficult. The reason is that the Switch has different functions from other stationary consoles as well as different players."

However, Haruhiro didn't rule out the possibility to making a port for the game in the future, as he teased future "support" for the Switch.

He added: "Each game console as its own characteristic, and it's necessary that we, as game makers, adapt to that when making [a game].

"From now on, we're looking at how we can support the Switch with our games, and that also includes 'Monster Hunter'."
