Marvel vs Capcom 3 ships 2 million units
Capcom’s announced this morning that Marvel vs Capcom 3 has shipped 2 million units since launch.
The third iteration in the fighting series, which signaled a com-back for the IP after 11 years out of the spotlight, released last month for PS3 and 360. Capcom is quite pleased, obviously.
“With an 11 year gap between the last entry in the Marvel vs. Capcom series, demand for a sequel was at an all-time high, and expectations were soaring. Capitalizing on the resurgence of the fighting game boom that began last year, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was able to exceed its predecessor and ship 2 million units worldwide,” the company said in a statement.
Capcom also announced that additional content, in the form of characters and costumes, would arrive as DLC on PSN and Xbox Live.
