Mega Man Franchise Sells 40 Million Units Worldwide; Battle Network Legacy Collection Sells 1.32 Million, Fifth-Best Selling Entry

Capcom has released their Consolidated financial results for the 1st Quarter of FY2023, revealing new sales info for their various IPs.

In particular, page four of the document announced that Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection has sold over 1.32 million units worldwide across PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch as of June 30, 2023. This makes the title the fifth-best-selling entry in the entire franchise. The collection was confirmed to have sold one million units around its April launch.

Further, this puts the Mega Man franchise at 40 million units sold, as stated on page fourteen of the Capcom 1st Quarter Report Fiscal year ending March 31, 2024.

The future of the blue bomber is looking brighter than ever.
