Capcom's fighting game endeavors have been far from perfect this generation, but Street Fighter 5 still continues to see positive traction almost four years after its initial release.

The developer / publisher recently updated their Platinum Titles web page, which ranks all of Capcom's games that have sold more than a million copies, revealing SF5 has reached 3.9 million sales worldwide as of September 30, 2019. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, Ultra Street Fighter 4 and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection saw their numbers bump up as well.

Last we heard after June this year was that Street Fighter 5 finally outsold the base version of SF4, and now it's managed to jump up another spot going from 3.7 million copies as of the previous quarter.

The flagship fighting game still has a ways to go to catch up to some of its current competitors like Tekken 7, but 200,000 copies sold on a three and a half year old fighting game in three months is certainly nothing to scoff at.

Marvel Infinite moved up the sales charts for the first time in many months going up to 1.4 million copies as it passed its two-year anniversary, but somehow Ultra Street Fighter 4 was still able to outsell it during the fiscal quarter considering that title jumped up even more spaces than Infinite.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection had been deemed a decent success in the eyes of Capcom after it released last year though it never managed to crack 1 million in sales. That however has finally changed as the compilation is now 91st overall just ahead of Street Fighter Alpha 3.

Street Fighter 5 is still the third-best selling singular fighting game release for the company though it might pass Street Fighter 2 Turbo by the end of the year if the game continues to sell at a similar pace.

Other notable numbers include Monster Hunter: World increasing its already massive sales to 14.1 million copies, Resident Evil 2 remake is quickly approaching its original's numbers at 4.7 million and Devil May Cry 5 is at 2.7 million worldwide units.
