Kudos to Pokkén Tournament for handling to hang out among a sea of fighting games, generally given it’s unusual, hybrid judgment of merging Pokémon and Tekken, and given a exclusivity to a single, low-selling platform. For Capcom, however, it is some-more salt in a wounds of what a publisher deliberate to be underwhelming sales for SFV, relocating usually 1.4 million copies during a finish of mercantile year 2016.
It’s also value observant that NPD usually reports earthy sales. There’s a possibility that, once digital sales on a PlayStation Store and Steam are accounted for, Street Fighter V competence indeed come out on top.
ZhugeEX did not yield accurate sales numbers for possibly title.
