Capcom, in its current guise, is like a footballer that’s on a hot streak and has scored a goal every game for the past couple of months. The publisher – colloquially coined Capgod here on our internal Slack chat – is absolutely on fire, releasing hit after hit after hit. (Its latest effort, Street Fighter 6, netted a perfect score in Japanese gaming bible Famitsu this week.)

The thing is, the games aren’t just reviewing well – they’re also posting extraordinary sales numbers. Take the excellent Resident Evil Village, for example, which has now sold eight million units worldwide. Obviously it’s taken a couple of years to get there, but these are fantastic numbers, and the number’s only likely to increase as the generation matures.

In fact, Capcom has managed to keep Resident Evil Village relevant with the addition of DLC content like the recent Winters’ Expansion and full PSVR2 support. It’s a feature that it’ll also be adding to Resident Evil 4 this year, which passed its own sales milestone recently, topping 3.7 million units since launch.
