Monster Hunter & Resident Evil dominate sales

Capcom has released its updated “Platinum Titles” list, celebrating the best-selling releases in the company’s history. The latest iteration of the list sees 2021’s Resident Evil Village and Monster Hunter Rise make their debut in the Top 20.

The list, as always, is dominated by Capcom’s Resident Evil and Monster Hunter franchises — which respectively take up seven and nine individual Top 20 slots. The survival horror’s best-selling entry, 2017’s Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, sits in second place with a whopping 10.2 million sales, while 2018’s Monster Hunter: World remains Capcom’s biggest-seller of all time, with an incredible 17.5 million sales to date. The remainder of the Top 20 is peppered with releases from both franchises.

Flagship fighting series Street Fighter still gets a look-in, with 2016’s Street Fighter V now sitting at six million sales and, proudly, 1992’s Street Fighter II still in the Top 10 with 6.3 million sales. Godspeed. At number 13, 2019’s Devil May Cry V is flying the flag for the super sexy shooter series, with an impressive 4.7 million sales. Save for these few releases, however, Capcom’s coffers are most assuredly filled via multiple acts of monster hunting and zombie smashing.
