Capcom’s latest installment in the Street Fighter franchise is Street Fighter V. It sports new graphics and features and if you’re wondering how well-received the game has been, you might be interested to learn that Capcom has announced as part of their financials that they have shipped 1.4 million copies of the game to date.
Given that Capcom’s financial statement ends 31st March, 2016, this means that the game has shipped that amount of units since about 6 weeks from its release, which was the 16th of February. Note that this is amount of copies shipped, which we should point out is different from units sold.
However like we said before, Capcom would only ship that amount if they knew that there was a demand, so it is safe to assume that actual sales units could be around there as well. Also 1.4 million units is a pretty decent. The most popular Street Fighter title is Street Fighter II which shipped 6.3 million units, followed by Street Fighter II Turbo which shipped 4.1 million.
