Capcom has announced Marvel Vs Capcom 3 has shipped two million units worldwide since launch, with the company claiming it to be a "successful revival" after a eleven year hiatus.
Note that this is units shipped, rather than sold, but you can't knock the company for posting the announcement, via its official Japanese website, as there probably was a few worried faces about the sales potential of the title. But good reviews and scoring high in the multformat charts has obviously put those fears to rest.
"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," read the announcement.
The first DLC characters for the tile, Jill Valentine and Shuma-Gorath, are now available for download.
