Capcom has announced that stellar beat ‘em up Street Fighter IV has shipped over one million copies globally since its release in February 2009.

The publisher added that this latest milestone brings the series total global sales to a whopping 28 million units, making it one of the firm’s most lucrative franchises alongside Resident Evil.

Feeling understandably chuffed with itself, Capcom stated, "As always, we at Capcom will continue to strive to develop new and original games that appeal to a broad audience around the world, and maximize the value of our well-loved brands.”
