Street Fighter is catching up too.
According to Capcom’s latest financial report for the last fiscal year ending on 31 March 2021, the biggest sellers were the new Resident Evil 3 Remake from earlier this year and Monster Hunter World Iceborne.
Despite being just fine and one of the weakest entries in the franchise to be powered by the new RE Engine, sales for the Resident Evil 3 Remake have exceeded a cumulative 2.7 million units worldwide, while the Resident Evil series in total has surpassed a cumulative worldwide 100-million-sales milestone with 103 million units sold.
Meanwhile, Monster Hunter World Iceborne continues its impressive sales growth, with Monster Hunter World now reaching a cumulative 16 million units sold worldwide to date. The entire Monster Hunter franchise as a whole has reached 64 million units to date.
Other notable achievements include the Street Fighter franchise reaching a whopping 45 million units and the following:
- Mega Man: 36 million
- Devil May Cry: 22 million
- Dead Rising: 14 Million
This is all good news for Capcom, as they look to continue their current momentum with the upcoming Resident Evil Village, which is slated to release for the PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC in 2021.
