Monster Hunter World Iceborne Sets a New Sales Record, Okami Finally Passes 1M Sales
Capcom has updated its platinum sellers data as of September 30th, 2019. Here’s the updated sales number for Monster Hunter World and more.
Monster Hunter World has now passed 14.1 million copies. While this is a great result, the newly launched expansion has also recorded a sell-in of 2.8 million copies. This counts just one month of shipment for the game that is still not out on PC. Keep in mind that Iceborne requires the user to complete the main game so it is an expansion that is only good for those who have already completed Monster Hunter World.
Other numbers include 4.7 million for Resident Evil 2, 2.7 million for Devil May Cry 5, and 6.8 million for Resident Evil 7. It is interesting to see the legs on Resident Evil 7 which is now close to outselling the original PS3 and Xbox 360 version of Resident Evil 6 and subsequently 5. Both of these stand at 7.4 and 7.5 million copies respectively and are the second and third best selling games for Capcom. This doesn’t count their PS4 and Xbox One ports which have also sold more than a million copies each.
Finally, Okami HD has now shipped 1 million copies counting just the recently launched HD remaster of the game. This is the first time Okami HD has shipped 1 million copies and that too on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. Megaman 11 is another game that has passed the million-seller mark.
Overall, Capcom is having its best sales result from this generation with its catalog sales and new games all setting a new sales record. They are heading into a new generation with a strong result and it should be interesting to see how they deal with it.
