Monster Hunter World isn’t the only standout in Capcom’s latest financial results. While it is the biggest performer, it seems Capcom’s efforts to revive the Blue Bomber, their mascot Mega Man, bore fruit last year too. Without going into specific numbers, Capcom reported that series revival Mega Man 11 ended up selling “well” last year.

“In addition, Mega Man 11 (for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC)… reported strong sales,” their fiscal report says. They also add that the Mega Man X Legacy Collection ended up selling well too, which should come as good news for fans since Capcom has previously stated that a new game in the Mega Man X franchise is contingent on fan reception to Mega Man 11.

Mega Man X Legacy Collection, Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 (for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC for all three titles) performed well thanks to a dedicated fan base and strong brand capabilities,” they noted.

This is excellent news, because it suggests that Capcom will not retire Mega Man for as long as they did for the last few years. While it’s clear that Mega Man will never sell as much as Monster Hunter or Resident Evil, at least we can be assured that it will sell well enough for Capcom to continue investing in the franchise.
