Street Fighter IV’s now moved more than 2 million copies worldwide, Capcom’s confirmed.

The game released last Friday, and will be followed by the new Street Fighter movie on February 28.

“The movie was developed in order to help rebuild the Street Fighter brand by drawing in new fans and reinvigorating fans of old,” said the firm

“In fruition of its policies, Capcom has achieved the feat of breaking the two million copy mark despite the economic crisis with this first iteration of the Street Fighter series in 11 years.”

Where’s our copy, Capcom? And where’s our FightStick, Mad Catz? Just not good enough.
