Capcom has confirmed the sales numbers for Resident Evil Remake 2, which released in January, stating the game has made its way to over 5 million people. That 5 million has helped bring up the total sales of the Resident Evil franchise to 94 million units since series first arrived back in 1996. In fact Resident Evil Remake 2 has managed to just outsell the original version, which has capped at approximately 4.96 million sales.
When Steve played Resident Evil 2 remake for review he wrote:
This Resident Evil 2 remake is a phenomenal update of a classic game. It combines the best of the original’s narrative and puzzles with the ammo crafting of Resident Evil 3 and the action gameplay of Resident Evil 4 to create a hybrid that still manages to feel like classic Resi. Old fans will enjoy the nostalgic retread of Racoon City in all its newfound glory, whilst newcomers will get to experience one of the finest episodes of the series as it should be. The remake has been more than worth the wait, and the evil of the Umbrella Corporation is back in residence at the top of the survival horror pile once more.
