Publisher hails "successful revival of the series" 12 years after the original shipped
Capcom has announced that the latest instalment in the Marvel vs Capcom franchise - Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds - has now shipped 2 million units globally.
The publisher has hailed the launch a "successful revival of the series" with the first two games originally releasing in 1999 and 2000, while a digital version of the second game notched up a million sales in 2009.
"With an 11-year gap between the last entry in the Marvel vs Capcom series, demand for a sequel was at an all-time high, and expectations were soaring," read a statement on the company's website. "Capitalising on the resurgence of the fighting game boom that began last year, Marvel vs Capcom 3 was able to exceed its predecessor and ship 2 million units worldwide.
"We here at Capcom remain committed to developing for multiple platforms, reaching out to as wide a variety of users as possible to deliver the very best in quality entertainment."
