Tiers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS

Just how strong of a seller is Street Fighter for Capcom? Latest numbers for the series as a whole and each game for Street Fighter 4, MvC3, and more

Update: A mistake in the article that implied the total of Marvel vs Capcom 3 sales totaled 7 million has been corrected. The Marvel vs Capcom series as a whole equals this amount. Secondly, while Street Fighter Alpha 3 is the lowest selling game listed, there are Capcom titles not represented due to their selling below 1 million.

Capcom has updated the sales of both their individual game sales and series sales for almost the entirety of their catalog. Sales, of course, are an integral part of getting funding for future titles, so where a franchise stands on this list shine shines some light on hopes for sequels and re-releases.

It should come as no surprise that Resident Evil takes the highest honor at a total of 62 million units sold worldwide. Specifically, Resident Evil 5 holds the number one spot for individual game sales at 6.7 million units. The highest selling Street Fighter title, Street Fighter II, closely follows in second at 6.3 million.

But how does Street Fighter hold up in sales overall? What is the worst selling Street Fighter title listed? And where's Marvel? Read below to find out.

VRyu's Makoto makes incredible reads, the Smug army invades, and more – this stunning, 15-minute USF4 highlight video by i Shoryuken makes time vanish

Highlight videos have become fairly common in the fighting game community. From the well done Spotlight series to YogaFlame24's selected replays and others, having an individual compilation standout has become increasingly difficult.

So it gives even more credit when a video like i Shoryuken's latest highlight reel is so intense and tightly packed that its full fifteen minutes seem to go by in an instant. There are so many excellent moments representing a large portion of the cast and so little downtime or fluff that it easily raises the bar for what to expect from selected Ultra Street Fighter 4 footage.

To lose a quarter of an hour in a matter of seconds, check out iShoryuken's video below.

Ixion's tier ranking for Dan in Ultra Street Fighter 4, feels Rufus is his easiest match-up

Another Ultra Street Fighter 4 character tier ranking was recently sent our way, and this time Ixion -- Europe's, and arguably the world's best Dan player -- brings us his match-up list for the Saikyo master.

Unlike some of the previous tier rankings we've featured here on the site in recent times, Ixion's arranges the roster from most difficult to easiest match-ups. It's no surprise that Evil Ryu sits atop the list as the most difficult opponent for Dan, but what's interesting is that Rufus is shown as Dan's easiest opponent to defeat.

Check out Ixion's tier ranking for Dan below, and let us know what you think in the comments below.

High-level Mii Brawler, Charizard, Villager, Little Mac and Diddy Kong play from Osaka's 'Sumabato' Smash 4 Battle Road tournament

This past Saturday, on October 25, the SHI-Gaming group of streamers and tournament organizers held another Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS offline tourney, this time in the Suminodo neighbourhood in Japan's Osaka prefecture.

A total of 177 participants showed up for this first-to-2, 2-stock double-elimination tournament, which was christened the 0th Smash 4 Battle Road tourney as this was the first time the SHI-G group had done the event in Osaka. This was meant as a test run for future tournaments.

Nevertheless, many of Osaka's strongest Super Smash Bros. 3DS players signed up for this test run, and as a result we're getting to see some very interesting high-level matches featuring characters like Charizard and Mii Brawler -- customizable moves and Mii Fighter characters were allowed in this tournament.

Ryu's ambiguous corner cross-under mix-up, Akuma whiffed Super setup that gives a guaranteed UC2, Tiger Shot loops - Ultra Street Fighter 4 CMV

CMV maker Luparez has been spending quite a bit of time training in the lab in Ultra Street Fighter 4, and he's finally ready to share his lab findings with the rest of us -- it's been two months since his last video!

In this multi-character CMV, Luparez not only performs some of the most fanciful combos possible in the game, but also demonstrates some of the mix-up and reset opportunities possible with many of the characters featured.

There's a lot to see here. My personal favorite: cancelling Akuma's fireball with his Raging Demon super, in order to force his opponent to jump for a guaranteed Ultra Combo 2.

All that and more in Luparez's "Experiments in the Lab 9" CMV below.

Luffy (Rose) vs. IronTrigr (Abel): Extremely close ft-to-5 set in which the UK player scores a Perfect on the EVO 2014 champ

Rose vs. Abel. That's match-up we don't get to see very often, especially at high levels of play as top Rose and Abel players are few and far apart, and they rarely get to play one another.

So it was a bit of a rare treat this morning when we woke up to find in our mailbox this following high-level first-to-5 set between France's MD|Luffy and one of UK's best players Hassan 'IronTrigr' Laghari, sent in to us by Balg MD.

Normally a first-to-5 set against MD|Luffy, on its own, isn't really a big enough deal for us to feature in a post (maybe in a roundup, if it's any good). Preferably, we'd like to see heavyweights on both corners of the ring.

But this set between MD|Luffy and IronTrigr isn't like most other -- it's filled with moments, and came down to the wire. IronTrigr even manages to score a Perfect round against the EVO 2014 champ. We think it's worth checking out; take a look below, and tell us what you think.

Halloween is right around the corner, and last week, in the spirit of the holiday, a hashtag hit Twitter that spread across the fighting game community like wildfire.

We here at EventHubs has sifted through the seemingly hundreds of posts to find our favorites, and we share them with you here tonight.

Now! Hit the lights, nestle under the covers, and prepare for the Sp00kiest, spine-tingling FGC stories you'll read all day! Mwuahaha! *lightning strike*

Dudley's MGB loop lasts too long on Hugo, Rose Throw KOs are amazing, and 'Dudstep' is the best music ever - this USF4 CMV packs a real punch

A new Ultra Street Fighter 4 combo video was sent our way earlier today, and this one sure is a doozy.

Tonight's CMV features the classiest pugilist in all of Street Fighter -- that's right, Balrog, get on his level! Dudley is the man of the hour, and this particular compilation of clips will have you thinking his previous occupation was "circus performer"...because of the juggles. Nevermind...

In this combo video, you'll be witness to a number of amazing juggle combos, a combo using the Machine Gun Blow loop on Hugo that goes on for much too long, and a Rose Throw KO that ends with the creation of an entirely new style of music -- 'Dudstep'. Believe me, it's exactly what it sounds like.

This montage is both impressive and creative in many ways, and it's not easy to impress this writer with Dudley combos as I've seen a fair share in my day. You'll find this classy combo compilation below.

Daigo may have lost to a Dhalsim at EVO, but he still thinks the character is weak - EventHubs's post-CPT Asia interview with The Beast

EventHubs caught up with MCZ|Daigo for a brief interview after he clinched a victory over RZR|Xian in the grand finals of the Capcom Pro Tour Asia tournament, earning himself a spot in the Capcom Cup 2014 finals later this year in December.

In our interview with The Beast, we asked MCZ|Daigo on his afterthoughts on Capcom Pro Tour Asia, whether or not he agrees with BE|Nemo's assessment of Ryu and Gen being bottom-tier, as well as a couple of questions submitted in to us by you readers (EventHubbers?).

KarbyP: Firstly, congratulations on winning Capcom Pro Tour Asia and qualifying for Capcom Cup 2014. How are you feeling right now?

MCZ|Daigo: I'm feeling very relieved right now. Now that I've managed to make it through to the Capcom Cup finals. Initially I didn't have any plans on attending the Capcom Cup finals, but mid-way through the Capcom Pro Tour -- about two months ago, shortly before the Taiwan qualifier -- I decided to give it a shot.

Since then I've been quite worried about whether or not I'd be able to qualify, so right now I'm really glad that I managed to.
