Capcom's 2013 action game hits 1.1 million units sold across Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, and PC.

Resident Evil: Revelations

Resident Evil: Revelations for consoles and PC has now sold more than 1.1 million units, Capcom announced today as part of its latest earnings report. The 1.1 million figure only includes sales for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC versions.

Resident Evil: Revelations originally launched in February 2012 as a 3DS-exclusive. It's not clear how many copies of that version have been sold to date.

Capcom expects Resident Evil: Revelations for consoles and PC to sell 1.2 million copies by the end of March 2014, meaning the game needs to shift another 100,000 copies in the next two months to reach that target.

Also during Capcom's earnings report today for the 9-month period ended December 31, the Japanese publisher reiterated that Dead Rising 3 had sold over 1 million copies to date and said DuckTales: Remastered saw better-than-expected performance, though specific unit sales were not described.

Downloadable content sales also were healthy during the period, coming in at ¥7.7 billion ($75.4 million), which is 10 percent higher than Capcom's plan for the entire fiscal year, the publisher said.

It wasn't all good news for Capcom, however, as the publisher said Lost Planet 3 performed below expectation due in part to the "intensifying competition" in the U.S. and European markets. Capcom previously forecast that game to sell 1.2 million copies by the end of March, but it's not clear how many units have been sold.

Overall, Capcom reported that revenue increased 3.5 percent to ¥75.2 billion ($736.5 million) for the nine-month period. The company's profits fell 10.3 percent to ¥5.96 billion ($58.3 million).
