Research group NPD revealed video game sales figures for the month of May today and inside the book of numbers lies a number: 27 thousand. That’s how many copies of Capcom’s famed series revisit were sold in the games’ opening month of May.
However, we shouldn’t be too quick to judge as the game, developed by GRIN released May 19 with the calendar month ending May 30. So that’s 27k copies in 11 days, and with a Metacritic score of a respectable 75, statistics for the month of June will likely be far more telling.
Another GRIN-developed title, which also dropped May 19 was Terminator Salvation, the game loosly based on the film. And despite low-scoring reviews across the board, enough so that Blast was not even shipped a copy to review, sold 43 thousand across the same 11 days. Ouch Bionic Commando, ouch.
Stay tuned for our forthcoming look at June’s sales figures next month.
