There are so many little factoids to take from this massive amount of data, we just don't know where to begin. Capcom has released what seems to be the life-to-date title and series sales figures on all its properties (via Next-Gen
). The best-selling series is Resident Evil,
with a reported 50 titles and 34.5 million unit sales. Second and third place go to Mega-Man
titles, 28m sales) and Street Fighter
(59 titles, 23m sales), respectively.
The best-selling single game for Capcom has been Street Fighter II,
released June 1992 for Super Nintendo / Super Famicom, with 6.3 million units sold. Overall, the company has had 46 titles attain platinum status. The biggest blast-from-the-past reminder for us was the Super Nintendo's Aladdin
at the No. 14 best-selling title with 1.75 million unit sales.
