Capcom has updated its game and series shipments data, and there is good news for fans of Devil May Cry 5 and Street Fighter V.
Congrats capcom. I hope you don’t rush Street fighter 6 at launch.
DMC 5 DESERVED THIS MUCH AND MORE.... That game is just lubbbb.... I hope that if a Ninja Gaiden game in the veins of NG Black/ 2 comes out, that sells this much too.
- Monster Hunter: World (PS4, Xbox One, PC) has sold 14.9 million units (800,000 additional units since September 30) - Resident Evil 7: biohazard (PS4, Xbox One, PC) has sold seven million units (200,000 additional units since September 30) - Resident Evil 2 (PS4, Xbox One, PC) has sold 5.8 million units (840,000 additional units since September 30) - Devil May Cry 5 (PS4, Xbox One, PC) has sold 3.1 million units (400,000 additional units since September 30) - Street Fighter V (PS4, PC) has sold 4.1 million copies (200,000 additional units since September 30) - Monster Hunter World: Iceborne (PS4, Xbox One) has sold 3.4 million units (400,000 additional units since September 30) - Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition (PS4, Xbox One, PC) has sold 1.4 million copies (first appearance on this list) Huge successes across the board.
That means the current ranking of the best selling standard edition games in the Devil May Cry series is 1.) Devil May Cry 5 2.) Devil May Cry 4 3.) DmC: Devil May Cry 4.) Devil May Cry 5.) Devil May Cry 2 6.) Devil May Cry 3 Curiously it seems DMC4: SE managed to actually just recently outsell the standard edition of DMC3.
Do you have the sales for the special editions?
It’s all posted on Capcom’s website. Gematsu has it all lined up for easy viewing https://www.gematsu.com/202... If special editions are added to the mix, then DMC4 is still the overall best selling game in the series
wait a minute DMC2 sold more than DMC3...DMC3 was a masterpiece. Edit: DMC3 (1.3) + DMC3SE(1) = 2.3 which is more than DMC2 1.7. now it makes sense
It seems DMC sold less and less with each new entry until DMC4 & later DMC5 came along. MGS3 also sold less than MGS2 despite being more acclaimed by the fanbase. This isn’t new phenomenon. If it’s any consolation, when you factor in the sales of DMC3: SE, then DMC3 overall outsold DMC2.
That's more bad news for SF5 rather than could news for DMC5 considering the former released in 2016 whilst the latter came out in 2019.
“Devil May Cry series is currently at 21 million copies shipped.” That puts Devil May Cry’s numbers under God of War, the current most commercially successful character action franchise. “The Street Fighter series as a whole is now at 44 million copies shipped.” That puts Street Fighter’s overall total under Tekken’s and Mortal Kombat’s numbers
Street Fighter still kept a significant lead over every other fighting game franchises during the 6th gen. The direct reason Street Fighter fell behind its competition in overall sales is because Street Fighter V sold less than Mortal Kombat X & XI as well as Tekken 7.
Sad really because DMC and Ninja Gaiden games are actually the peak of the character action genre.
