Resident Evil: Revelations sells more than 1 million copies across consoles and PC

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

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).

How the hell can capcom apparently make profits on games with barely a million in sales, but Square Enix needs 4 million in sales to break even on Tomb Raider? As much as I dislike Capcom, seems some companies need to learn cost management from them.

lost interest in RE games after RE4...

With the picture that accompanies this article on the News page, I think more about the word "revealing" than revelations.

While not quite as good as RE4 or 5, it would have been a pretty awesome title if released before 4, and is still a whole lot better than 6 simply because it feels more like the kind of game we want. It even manages the multiple types of action well: when exploring the ship, it plays more like a classic RE game. There are some RE4-like tension sequences, and every now and again, you get an action heavy mission. The older school style of play greatly outnumbers the action sequences though, and the action sequences are only utilized when they FEEL appropriate, so you don't feel ripped off like you do in 6 (and no QTEs!!).


I wish it had a weapon system closer to RE4 and 5, and there isn't as many options to dispatch enemies as there were in those games (headshotting monsters isn't nearly as fun as blowing up skulls in 4 or 5), but overall I say it was well worth the $20 I spent on it.

I would buy it if it wasn't on sale for such a ridiculous price... You should look at Ubisoft and how they put Liberation HD... Not 50€(10€ more than the price of the original game) but 20€. It's not like the work you made on the game made it look like a proper game for the consoles, it could have used some more work on the graphics but most importantly on the controls. Once it hits the 20€ mark, I'll buy it.

And rounding out the bottom of the pack was the PC version selling about 20,000 copies lol

lol due to "intensifying competition". Seriously? how about the game was just pure trash and outsourced trash at that. It seems they couldn't even be bothered to handle one of the most promising franchises. In fact that seems to be a trend with capcom now lets just outsource every thing to third rate western developers who aren't gonna do the games justice.

Bought it in a bundle with RE4 for 20$ on Steam, not bad not bad at all!

One more reason for companies to port more games to PC. It's ridiculous that companies are always blaming PC piracy when most of the times they sell just as much as their consoles versions.

Everybody, please forget resident evil 3-6. Re has no tension in the games anymore. Its just grab a firearm and shoot. Wait for the evil within and spend more money on a better game than some re shooter. I hope more puzzle,tension and mystery will be in the evil within. Otherwise yhe franchise is already dead to me.

It's got a bit of the atmosphere of the old games going on, but despite the modern control scheme and graphics, I found I really wasn't having fun about 80% of the time.

I liked this game, and the final boss was challenging, took me a while to figure out how to beat him.

Raid mode was fun too, but I haven't finished all the stages.

I want to pick up Revelations eventually and Lost Planet? More like Suck Planet 3. They are out of ideas and talent.

good game and glad to see it selling well. now make a PC/console RE game like this that isn't a mobile port.

Is this worth buying? R6 and Raccon city made me never want to play Resident Evil again.

I bought this game on steam when it was on sale for $14.  It's a good game but I wished they had used the RE6 engine since a lot of textures just look washed out on the pc.

I got this game on my 3DS XL on digital and I got to say, it plays so well on my 3DS XL and Capcom did good with this game for once Capcom.

seems a step in the right direction for RE


maybe they still don't get what made RE successful int eh first place

While this one was ''better'' than RE6 its still way too focused on shooting/summersault-ing and the game really felt linear.  They NEED to go back to fixed cam angles,tank controls and pre-rendered backgrounds where you can chose how you want to play and where items are actually scarce.

Still prefer zombies, but the game had one or two moments.  The final boss was rubbish though, more annoying than anything else.

@jakerscythe  Probably not for an admittedly good, gussied up 3DS port. For bloated, badly managed games like Tomb Raider, yes.

@Gen007  Perhaps they should give LP3 to those guys that made the reebooted DMC.Nice ´Vash´ pic.

Well, if you saw the new company tennants they released not long ago, "making quality games " wasn't there. Brand recogntion and mobile is higher above on their priorities.

@importuno And piracy is rampant on consoles as well, but to a smaller degree (hello, GTA V!).

@minhnodda Re4 had no tension? Did you not get passed the village? Or the house? Or the speeding truck? Maybe it wasn't "shock and scare" tension, but "holy crap I'm gonna die!" tension is just as good in my book.

@meedokicky  RAID MODE IS ADDICTIVE!Completed all the stages on 3DS version and now struggling to enable all characters on my WiiU version...

@Kjranu They did a good job with Dragon's Dogma though. Shooters just isn't a strong point with Capcom. They need to stick with stylish action games and RPGs.

@Williams0907 imo it is good. the story is a bit meh but it is way better than RC and scarier than RE6.

padako

@Williams0907  it is very good but get it on sale if you can. the story is nonsensical and the graphics are "port" quality but it has a classic RE feel and some genuinely scary sequences.

Also the lack of puzzles and ''random'' events ***SPOILER*** 


 In REmake  you could hear Rebecca scream from a room on the 2nd floor when you played as Chris and it was YOUR decision on if you rushed up there and found where the scream came from in time to save her from a Hunter otherwise she didnt make it and the ending cut-scene was different. There hasnt been stuff like this (both this and the puzzles) Since that action-oriented POS of RE4 that killed this franchise for good came out.

@meeghoulz @meedokickyyeah it is kind of tough when it says play 5 levels below recommend or 100% accuracy. I kind of miss it :P I may get back to it sometime, I remember getting a new game then and stopped playing this.

@mikemaj82 @importuno  VGChartz is worthless. They still think Diablo 3 sold less than 5 million when it already hit the 15 million mark.

@mikemaj82 @importuno  


You mean the one that doesn't account Steam sales, since they don't release theor numbers to the public?
