The majority of Monster Hunters sales came from Japan, and Monster Hunter would sell over there no matter what system it was on. third party JRPGs do fine on the 3ds as well, but everything else seems to struggle. If third party games were doing so well we would hve had some announced at E3. Same goes for the eshop.
