A French site by the name of GameCharts.fr recently posted an article that exhibits sales numbers for console fighting games in Japan. Organized into several charts and graphs, we get a look out how each listed game sold, ranging from the Street Fighter 2 series on Super Nintendo, all the way through the Xbox 360 / PS3 generation, including mobile consoles.

According to the statistics, the very first iteration of Street Fighter 2 sold a whopping 2,880,00 copies, with the following two games in the series also selling in the millions. Jumping forward to 2009, Street Fighter 4 (Vanilla) only sold 210,641 copies on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 collectively.
