Devil May Cry ships high numbers
With an original expected shipment of 400,000 for Devil May Cry, Mainichi Interactive News is reporting Capcom to have shipped approximately 500,000 to the United States. Also, with October being only midway through, Capcom has already shipped around 600,000-700,000 copies to Japan.
With the increase in game company’s awareness towards violent images being displayed on TV recently, Capcom had not received as great of a marketing campaign as they had hoped for. These new shipment numbers are excellent feedback for Capcom and the future of Devil May Cry.
