It was also the fastest-selling game in the after launching in March, when it managed to clear two million copies sold within its launch month.
Capcom also reported a higher digital share, hitting almost 74% for them during this quarter. The sales update comes as the end of their fiscal quarter result which includes the time period from April until the end of July.
