Monster Hunter PSP is 6th best-selling Capcom game ever

Capcom has released an investor relations report which reveals that PlayStation Portable classic Monster Hunter Portable 2G is its sixth best-selling game of all time, with 2.55 million units sold to date.

The monstrous stand-alone expansion is dwarfed only by the first three Resident Evil titles, with over 15 million sales between them, and Street Fighter II, which has chewed through 6.3 million sales since it launched on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1992.

Intriguingly, given its somewhat muted critical performance in the West, Devil May Cry 4 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 snuck in at number 8 with 2.35 million sales, while the original Monster Hunter Portable 2 landed one place behind with 2.25 million.
