There is no doubt that Capcom has started out 2018 on a very high note considering how successful Monster Hunter World has been since its release back in January 2018. Since its release Monster Hunter World has sold at least 7.5 million units worldwide within a few weeks and has easily become Capcom’s best selling game ever. While sales for Monster Hunter World will continue to grow throughout the year we also have other big releases from Capcom coming up in 2018.
This upcoming summer the Mega Man X Anniversary Collection 1 & 2 will be released for various game consoles including the PS4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch. Not only have many people waited for Capcom to re-release the Mega Man X Collection for the past couple of years; but it’s also a treat since Mega Man 11 will be coming out later this year as well.
On top of all that we have the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection coming out this month featuring the best 2D arcade titles in series from the 90’s. As of right now 2018 looks like it’s going to be a very high profile year for Capcom. It also seems like Capcom’s popularity is going to increase as we move closer to 2019.
