Capcom has updated their list of best-selling games — the titles that have surpassed a million sales — and Resident Evil 5, the follow-up to one of the greatest horror games of all time, is now officially their most successful game ever. Much of this success can undoubtedly be attributed to the iconic status of its predecessor, but it was also a pretty fantastic game in its own right, even if it did take the series further from its roots in survival horror.
You can see the full list of titles here. With a library of million+ selling games, there’s no arguing the effect Capcom has had on the games industry, even if their latest efforts haven’t been as praised.
Also, if you scroll down the list you’ll see Resident Evil: Revelations, which barely made the cut at an even million. Let’s give that game a boost!
“In the home video game market, sales of more than one million units is the generally accepted standard for a major hit,” reads a statement from the company. “Since Capcom’s inception, we have created many of these titles, including Street Fighter and Resident Evil. With more than 60 titles that have sold more than one million units, Capcom stands alone in the video game industry.”
