Devil May Cry 5 seems to be breaking all of Capcom’s records. Hideaki Itsuno’s new video game, as the PlayStation LifeStyle portal has shared, would be close to reaching three million units sold. An impressive figure if we consider that the sales of the last delivery, DmC: Devil May Cry, managed to sell 2.4 million units. The game starring Dante, Nero and V has been applauded by critics and users, revitalizing the saga and returning it to the focus of success that it should never have left.
It is not being Capcom’s only success in 2019: Resident Evil 2 Remake is having better sales than hack and slash. Launched a few months earlier, the adventure of Leon and Claire in Racoon City would have already exceeded 4.2 million units sold, which places it as one of the 10 best-selling games in the history of the Japanese company, being very likely that reach the 4.96 million copies that the original game achieved. It is difficult, however, if you want to fight for first place: Monster Hunter World is unbeatable.
The monster hunting game, launched in January 2018, has already exceeded the 14 million barrier. Surely I’ve managed to add new millions to his account after the premiere of Monster Hunter World Icerborne on September 6. The Monster Hunter expansion seems very promising, and fans of the franchise will be delighted to expand their hunting ground with new creatures in icy environments.
What awaits Capcom by 2020? It remains to wait for Gamescom to know if Osaka’s firm has something in hand for its immediate future.
