Marvel vs. Capcom 2 pulled in $4.2 million in 2009 on XBox Live Arcade According to the new research group, Forecasting and Analyzing Digital Entertainment, the re-release of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 grossed $4.2 million on XBox Live Arcade.


This is a pretty nice number considering it's not factoring in the game's simultaneous release on the PlayStation 3 and that it was a rehashed title which didn't require a full development cycle.

Capcom has said a few times that MvC2 had an impressive performance as far as sales went, and these numbers certainly back that up.

With these kinds of figures, you can bet we'll be seeing more re-releases in the future. Here's how the top 10 played out for 2009.
1. Battlefield 1943 - $12.5 million ($15.00)
2. Castle Crashers - $7.3 million ($15.00)
3. Trials HD - $7.1 million ($15.00)
4. Shadow Complex - $6.1 million ($14.38)
5. Family Game Night - $4.2 million ($9.53)
6. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 - $4.2 million ($15.00)
7. Magic: The Gathering - $2.8 million ($10.00)
8. Worms 2 - $1.8 million ($10.00)
9. Peggle - $1.8 million ($8.86)
10. Turtles in Time: Reshelled - $1.7 million ($10.00)
