Ultra Street Fighter II ships 500,000 copies, Monster Hunter XX Switch ships 350,000 units

Posted on November 6, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Capcom provided its latest financial results today, and revealed new data for both Ultra Street Fighter II and Monster Hunter XX for Switch.

Capcom once again that Ultra Street Fighter II was “a smash hit”. The game has shipped 500,000 copies worldwide thus far.

In Japan, where Monster Hunter XX for Switch was only released, shipments have exceeded 350,000 units. Capcom said it had a “stalwart performance” before also saying that it “performed strongly”.

Also worth noting, Capcom noted that Switch helped revitalize the home video games market in Japan:

“During the six months ended September 30, 2017, our industry saw broad signs of recovery, including greater penetration of the PlayStation 4 home video game console and the strong performance of the new Nintendo Switch game console. This revitalized the home video games market, which had appeared stagnant relative to the growth of mobile games primarily for smartphones.”

Thanks to Arison for the tip.

    “including greater penetration of the PlayStation 4 home video game console ”
    Wow, it is worse than I thought. Capcom is taking to seriously the fu#kCapcom.

    • Radish

      Yeah, Sony really penetrated Capcom’s Board of Directors deeply this year.

      • Strawman

        With a load of bills strapped on.

  • GoldenTriforce

    So XX did well, that’s good. If we keep punching at this wall maybe Capcom will grow at least one brain cell.

    • GoldenTriforce

      Also stalwart is a great way to describe how it’s selling lol

    • Aline Piroutek

      Even if the non hybrid exclusive Monster Hunter doens’t come to Switch, I’m starving for a Monster Hunter Switch title, I would buy XX for sure.

      • Strawman

        But you realize they’re probably not going localize it right? At least, not until World has had it’s full run.

        • Aline Piroutek

          Yeah, pretty sad. I had a lot of fun playing MH3U on 3DS WiiU. It even had voice chat without a freaking phone.

          • Strawman

            Yup, and that’s why Capcom is a bit of dingdong. The Western MH fans that don’t want/have a PS4/Xbox One/PC to buy Worlds on, will not be going on awesome boss-smashing hunts any-time soon. And not for the foreseeable future either.

      • GoldenTriforce

        I got it on Amazon and its good. Couldn’t get into the series before but I’m starting to dig in now.

    • GoldenTriforce

      It only sucks that every time we punch at the wall they push it back an inch.

    • Exy

      THE EVALUATION SHALL CONTINUE.

      • Strawman

        My evaluation of their continued evaluation amounts to: lacking.

  • Aiddon

    And somewhere the devs of MHW are putting their fingers in their ears and going “LALALALALALALALALA!”

    • theFooFighter

      Rumors say Capcom has been running around like a chicken with its head cut off. People freaking out because sf5 bombed, people mad because they liked their relationship with Nintendo, everyone surprised by how the switch is performing, mhxx team rushing to do a switch project. The mh world team is just following orders it’s everyone else that’s loosing it

      • GoldenTriforce

        If thats true thats pretty incredible. People mad being the people on the MH team right?

        • theFooFighter

          Yeah. A lot of members on both teams were very happy with their relationship with Nintendo. This is all rumors but it’s the same bunch of rumors that leaked XX and world over a year ago

          • Strawman

            The same dude said they’re working on a ground-up MH for the Switch aye, also the same dude that got banned off NeoGaf. Not sure what to think anymore, honestly.

            No, it’s a different person and you’re confusing different rumours. The rumour that thefoofighter is talking about comes from 4chan, not from neogaf. He leaked MHXX (for 3DS and Switch) and talked about Sony paying Capcom to keep the new MH game off the Switch and how there was now internal strife at Capcom due to SFV bombing and how a different team is making a different Switch MH.

          • Strawman

            Oh, fair enough. But Sony didn’t pay them to keep it off Switch. Sony paid them to have it exclusive to PS4 in Japan.

            https://twitter.com/Nibellion/status/876363766157410304

            The one I mean is a different one, but nonetheless relevant.

          • Greenekitten

            Who knows. Paying to keep a game away from Nintendo consoles pretty much means having it exclusive to Playstation in Japan anyway. Seeing as Japanese people barely play these kinds of games on PC or Xbox.

          • Strawman

            Kinda weird then, how they have Monster Hunter Frontier exclusive to Japan, on PC: http://monsterhunter.wikia.com/wiki/Monster_Hunter_Frontier

          • Aline Piroutek

            Monster Hunter Frontier is on everything. Computer Vita PS3 WiiU, everywhere except 3DS.

          • Strawman

            Xbox 360 and PC it says. 360 no longer being supported is my guess.

          • Stuart

            Thanks,I was digging Neogaf trying to find that leak. Wow it does looks like Capcom with those Sony deals really are messing up the relations with everyone all around,even inside the company.

          • Which is why there needs to be a serious shakeup in ‘any’ third party like Capcom that’s affected by this practice.

          • Strawman

            I don’t like Sony for how they’re acting these days, but there’s a lot of evidence making it very unlikely that Sony paid to keep it off Switch. First off, the development of the game started 3 years back, when the Wii-U was still (gasping but alive) and the Switch was still the NX, and 2nd off, why would they bar the Switch, it’s announcement back then when the game wasn’t a on a meteoric rise, when the PC and Xbox One are arguably the bigger competitors for them in the West?

          • Gregory Weagle

            Yeah; I think this is a case of incompentency on Capcom’s part and nothing else.

            I just want Capcom to just port the games on Switch in 2018 and be done with it. I think Disney Afternoon collection and Megaman Collection 2 are developed by Digital Ellicpse. Does DE even have Switch development kits or even a license to develop games on the Switch?

          • Stuart

            IMO in both case cenarios, Capcom is being stupid and unaware of what its audience wants. The difference is that in one case the stupidity is due to greedy and in the other is due to…I dunno…too much japanese McDonalds instead of milk when they were a baby…?

          • Strawman

            @gregoryweagle:disqus Both of you might want to take a look at this: http://www.gameinformer.com/themes/blogs/generic/post.aspx?WeblogApp=news&y=2017&m=10&d=30&WeblogPostName=report-japanese-third-parties-unconvinced-of-the-switch-are-now-scrambling&GroupKeys=

            If there’s truth to that, then we’ll only see them really step up to the plate in 2019.

          • Stuart

            Yeah I saw that, someone posted a link to this on VgChartz. It’ll be interesting to see how third parties will behave with the Switch next year. If that is true,is crazy how much a bad taste the Wii U left on thirds,but the lack of trusth on a Nintendo portable is kinda incredible.

          • Strawman

            That’s the thing, it wasn’t marketed as portable, and it’s only half portable, right? It’s this hybrid system, right? So yeah, the concept would’ve still scared them off, as the other foot of the Switch stands in the oversaturated home-console zone.

          • Stuart

            Good point. Overall,it looks like (If that’s true) that the entire industry wasn’t having faith in Nintendo post-Wii U. Again,it’ll be interesting to see what will come out of thirds next years, the Switch’s sucess got them with their pants down.

          • Strawman

            It’ll probably be a great 2019 when the third-parties get their projects finished, and the indies, they’re smart. They’re going in while the big guys are still dumbfounded, getting a ton of sales while they’re gawking.

            Though that does raise a question: Why can Bethesda have Wolfenstein and DOOM ready when others react like they’ve been hit with a baseball bat of amazement? Probably because Nintendo’s reached out to them.

          • Stuart

            I think Bethesda just reacted quickly. There is an unexplored market for these kind of games on Switch. I mean, there are no FPS on the system and no hope for FPSs of other thirds,so I believe the minute they saw Switch was going to be a success they saw the opportunity to monopolize that audience by releasing both those games ASAP.

            I mean,it is what I think at least…

          • Aline Piroutek

            A really smart move from Bethesda I see. They got all fps market on Switch. And Arcsystem is going to get all the fighting public on Switch, as it is a brand new game.

          • Strawman

            But there’s no prior title to measure it’s success on, nothing guaranteeing anything. Bethesda is taking a huge risk, where most others are still anxious. Wouldn’t surprise me if they both reached out to eachother.

    The site is getting impossible to use on mobile. It crashes constantly.

      My phone seems to handle the site fine. I just wish that the ads at the bottom of the screen with the Close X on it would work. I tried several times on several ads to hit that X and the ads just won’t close.

    • RoadyMike

      Disqus only work 1/4 of the time. And god forbid I try to see more comments or reply, phone crashes on the spot

      • GoldenTriforce

        It takes me about 5 times on average to comment more than a sentence on my phone. Pretty sure its an ad issue but I can’t pinpoint which ads.

        • TruExtent

          Comments seem for work me. It’s actually commentING that starts killing me. My types on the keyboard stop registering or get delayed and if I’m typing out a long comment, my keyboard straight up disappears at some points because it can’t handle what ever is happening in the background.

          • GoldenTriforce

            Yup

    • I’m good in my side, works for me. What you talking about it?

      • GoldenTriforce

        I have an iPhone with Chrome, the site is very unstable when I use it there.

        • I have iPad ( iOS 11.1 is trash ) with VPN, not issues here.

          • GoldenTriforce

            Could be a RAM issue. If I keep a window of this site (others as well) open too long on my PC it begins to take up an exorbitant amount of ram, normally around 2GB, slowing down my PC. I think something similar is happening on my phone, which probably has a lot less RAM than your iPad. Probably has to do with ads.

        Obviously they’re waiting until they need money again to fund their projects

        • Game_God

          Like in the Wii DS era when all the money made on those systems would finance money hemorrhaging eye-candy AAA HD games on PS360. Nintendo kept quite a few companies afloat that saw a few a these games backfire!

          • Aline Piroutek

            And don’t forget the Resident Evil Revelations’s case. Get the funds on Nintendo, do a sequel to the game which got famous on Nintendo Platafforms exclusively to non-Nintendo Platafforms.

          • Game_God

            Also known as “spitting in the face”…

          • masterjedi

            Anarchy Reigns is a perfect example of this. Platinum Games made a ton of money from Madworld on Wii in 2009 after it sold over 750k units. But instead of putting that profit into another game for Nintendo, they took that money and used it to make Anarchy Reigns (the spiritual sequel to Madworld which even featured a cameo from Madworld’s main character) for the HD twins which came out in in 2012 and only sold around 240k units.

          • Game_God

            You can be sure that it was more expensive than Madworld too…

  • Jon Turner

    If they’re pleased with the performances of both games on Switch I hope that means more games from them next year.

  • Roto Prime

    Pull out before it is too late Capcom!! the budget for Ultra Street Fighter II was not worth these sales number, Cancel Resident Evil Revelaitons collection and save all you money for the other systems….You made the right call capcom….

    • Jon Turner

      I can assure you that RESIDENT EVIL REVELATIONS COLLECTION is absolutely fantastic. I played it at NYCC and it runs beautifully. It’s absolutely worth picking up.

      • Roto Prime

        I’m getting two copys day one, can not wait!!!!!!!!!

        • TruExtent

          I’d only get one. Remember that the box says Collection but the cartridge only has RE R1 on it. RE R2 is a download code. What are ya gonna do with two download codes?

          (And no don’t give it to me. I can’t handle horror and RE games. I’ve tried. Never play RE4 Wii at midnight on Halloween…)

          • Roto Prime

            LOL <3 I have two Nintendo Switch and the game has local Wireless lan, Going to be epic playing the Ghost ship again in 1080p 60fps with my player two <3

    • GoldenTriforce

      PACHINKO MONEY HERE WE COOOOOOME!

    • TruExtent

      I’m having a hard time seeing the sarcasm in this comment…. I can detect it but I can’t pinpoint it. Am I correct or misunderstanding something?

      • Roto Prime

        Yes, I don’t know if you remember the way they spelled Revelations on the Nintendo 3DS, but yeah…

        • TruExtent

          Huh, I forgot about that whole typo thing. I also missed the “i”. Oh well, carry on Roto.

    • Patient grasshoper, maybe 2018 a new MH will come out on Switch!

      • Aline Piroutek

        Yeah, let’s forget about Worlds. Switch have enough discussion with Capcom.

        • Exclusivity isn’t a bad thing, every company has the right to be relevant in the market, I know Nintendo fans are upset over why Capcom is doing this but it’s what it’s, move on with your life.

          • Strawman

            Exclusivity is very anti-consumer though, and even Phil Spencer recognizes that much.

            People are dumbfounded, because it’s a little odd to just drop a market that’s done well, leaving people in the dust that have constantly bought your games, and to try get a new audience (along with the old one, that’s Worlds’ attempt) by making changes. If people knew on beforehand that World was coming, they’d be less surprised/disgruntled, but it is what it is.

            Not to mention, portability is a selling point for people (I don’t know how many). These people see the next MH, look at the platforms, and scratch their heads, because what had them buy and love the game, is now gone.

          • Aline Piroutek

            The bad thing isn’t it about being on PS4, it bad everyone gets except Switch (PC is a computer).

          • Time will tell if Capcom will change of mind after Xmas season (10m+ Switch unit sold) in the mean time play other games.

  • Pepperkeet

    Who could have foreseen monster hunter selling on switch…
    I mean… honestly what are the odds…

  • Not bad at all Capcom, I wish Capcom will come out with HD Alpha 3, Lost Planet remaster/HD on Switch. I’m not into MH but will be cool Capcom will litsen Nintendo fans.

    • Aline Piroutek

      Well, we have got 10 amazing Megaman games on DS at least.

      • That’s true, maybe Capcom will change of mind when Switch will hit 10m+ on Xmas season, that will be huge achievement! I’m optimist about devs will jump Switch hype.

        • Only time will tell. We just have to see what happens during this holiday season.

          • Well if you saw the numbers from Mar to Oct 7.6m+ average sale per month 1m per month also Black Friday is around the corner plus Xmas season. I’m pretty sure they will 10m+ after Xmas, but yeah we will see

          • Yeah, i’m already aware of that; everything’s aligning very well for Nintendo.

  • gurbeergill

    Excellent. Especially MM:XX sales. I was worried a little after the first-week sales were disappointing.
    It looks like the “Nintendo fanboys only buy Nintendo games” excuse is dying a slow, but sure, death.

  • Jay Bern

    Nice, so…Ultra Street Fighter 3, maybe?

    • Bap

      Capcom is too scared to even touch SFIII.

      • Jay Bern

        I’m afraid I don’t follow. Scared of what? Releasing another version of it that could feasibly sell very well?

        • Nhat Anh Hoang

          They are too dump, you know

        • Bap

          3rd Strike is considered to be the apex of the series and fighting games as a whole.

    • That will be cool but in HD or remaster version
