Resident Evil: Revelations HD Sells 900,000 Worldwide


Earlier today, we reported that Capcom profits in their first quarter (April – June) dropped 37% due to a lack of major releases, with the HD version of Resident Evil: Revelations and Dragon’s Dogma being the only two high-profile titles released.


Capcom said both games had seen “solid sales” but had failed to have an impact on overall company sales. Now, we know how they both did.


In a new report, Capcom detail that the HD Resident Evil: Revelations has sold 900,000 copies worldwide. Meanwhile, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen has sold 550,000 copies worldwide.


Capcom’s second quarter (July – September) will include the release of Monster Hunter 4 in Japan, so it should be interesting to see how that particular game impacts the company’s profits and how it sells relative to expectations.


Monster Hunter 4 is slated for release on September 14th. Capcom hope to sell 2.8 million copies of that game by the end of March 2014, and that shouldn’t be much of a problem at all, given the series’ popularity.
