Capcom Platinum Titles List

Capcom updated its Platinum Titles list, revealing titles like Devil May Cry V and Monster Hunter: Rise moved up the ranks. While Monster Hunter: World still remains in the top position, with Resident Evil 7 securing spot number two, Monster Hunter: Rise now rests at third place. Having sold 11.2 million copies, Monster Hunter: Rise sufficiently supplanted the Resident Evil 2 remake, which previous occupied that position at 10 million units sold.

However, Devil May Cry V is just short of breaking into the top ten of Capcom’s Platinum Titles list, resting at 6.10 million units sold worldwide. As of writing this, Street Fighter II still occupies spot ten at 6.30 million units sold. Resident Evil Village also ranks somewhere in the top ten, sitting at spot nine with 6.60 million units sold. This may change, however, with the newly release Resident Evil Village Gold Edition releasing in late October 2022. That is assuming Capcom will bundle in its sales with the original release of the game.

Capcom continued to see success in its recent releases. Monster Hunter: Rise quickly supplanted Street Fighter II as Capcom’s best single-platform selling title. With its release on PC, sales continued to grow, seeing it quickly climb Capcom’s internal chart. Capcom also announced in August 2022 that the Sunbreak expansion for Monster Hunter: Rise had officially sold over 4 million units worldwide.
