The Resident Evil 3 remake of 2020 has been dubbed a hit by Capcom after reaching nearly 4 million in unit sales worldwide. Congrats Capcom!
The impressive sales numbers for Resident Evil 3 were published in a recent Capcom annual report. As reported by IGN, the report reveals that Resident Evil 3 has now sold 3.9 million units. In comparison, the original RE3 of 1999 had sold 3.5 million units.
Resident Evil and Monster Hunter are as popular as ever!
Elsewhere in the annual report, Capcom also revealed that Resident Evil Village has sold 4.5-million-units and Monster Hunter Rise has achieved 4.8-million-unit sales.
Combining the totals across all brands, Capcom has sold 30.1 million game units this fiscal year from April 2020 to March 2021. So, I think it’s safe to say that business is booming for Capcom.
Furthermore, the annual report detailed that the Resident Evil series has sold over 110 million units, Monster Hunter with 72 million units, Street Fighter with 46 million units and Mega Man with 36 million units.
Capcom’s annual report has been a blessing of information this week as it was also revealed that Resident Evil Village will be getting some free DLC. Happy days!
