Mega Man Franchise Breaks 33 Million Sold; Up 1 Million Since Last Quarter
The Mega Man franchise continues to grow thanks to an additional million sales from last quarter. According to Capcom's updated Game Series Sales page, the franchise now sits at 33 million units worldwide. It's up by one million units since Q2 2018.
If last week's report is any indication, we can assume Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 contributed toward the bump. As stated by Capcom just last week, "Mega Man X Legacy Collection, Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 (for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC in all three cases) performed well thanks to a dedicated fan base and strong brand capabilities."
Do note, however, Mega Man X Legacy Collection did not achieve one million units – this according to the updated Platinum Titles list. Still, X Legacy Collection sold well enough to not only meet Capcom's expectations but bump things up to 33 million.
As for Mega Man 11, no data has been shared at this time. We'll probably know more towards the end of this quarter.
