Rockman Xover Downloaded 1.5 Million Times
Capcom Japan revealed that its free-to-play mobile RPG Rockman Xover has crossed 1.5 million downloads as of the end of 2013. The number comes from a recent franchise retrospective hosted at Capcom's 30th anniversary hub.
As the game continues to prove popular on both iOS and Android platforms, it won't be long before it overtakes Mega Man 2, the highest selling title in the franchise at 1.51 million units. Sure, that may sound a little unsettling... but we're still left to wonder how much revenue Xover has brought in (based on in-app purchases). There's no publicly available data on that. It's hard to say which of the two current best selling Mega Man titles have brought in more dough.
Nevertheless, Xover is a success. The game set out to do exactly what it was meant to do and Capcom seem pretty pleased with the results. At the very least, that 1.5 million proves there's an audience in Japan still invested in the franchise. Hopefully, in the long run, that will help give credence to future developments. Preferably not mobile.
