Chances for ZX3 Higher Than We Thought? Maybe (Not).

Here's the scoop: We all know that Capcom's goal was to sell a minimum of 100,00 units of ZXA before the end of the fiscal year (which I believe is at the end of March, not sure) to possibly garner a third entry.

However, going by VGChartz's data, ZXA is just 10,000 or so units off. Maybe maybe not.

I took the liberty of asking around the VGChartz community to see how accurate their data was.

The results? VGChartz data is off.

Which means one of two things:

-ZXA PASSED the 100,000 units mark way back. But, we've yet to hear even a whisper of a follow up, so that could mean...

-ZXA sold BELOW that 90,000 something number.

For fun, I spoke with a Capcom rep concerning the VGC data. Apparently, I was told that various Capcom games on record are off from a 3,000-10,000 unit range.

Capcom informed me that VGC's data is based off of estimates, some numbers do not include small retailer stores and several online shops as well.

I was recommended to keep an eye out for press releases every so often from Capcom IR for "official stats and numbers."

So pretty much, we're back to square one: not knowing what the heck is going on with ZX3.

Where do we go from here? Should we just wait it out? Or, continue to squeeze Capcom and/or Inti-Creates for some official words?


  1. You can try squeezing, but I doubt they'll tell us anything until they're ready to. But then again, it might be good to show them we're interested in ZX3.

    So do whatever you want.

  2. I say MILK THEM FOR ALL THEY'RE WORTH!! ... or are willng to give, heh. *please please please make the third one...*

  3. I think... we, and/or some other fans should send a joint letter to capcom to send our appreciation for the series, possibly using some Facebook group for collecting numbers. This should hopefully give the company the idea that we, the fans (or whomever you guys are, I don't know) are still giving our thanks for the previous two and that they still have fans to feed. or some other message, I don't know I just like the idea of sending a joint "Go get 'em, Capcom/Inti! We're counting on you!"

    Also, enjoy this music on Youtube... if one wishes, not mine, I just like it.
