    I swear it had hit a million sales around launch date. It had outsold SFV relatively quickly, didn’t it?

    SFV also sold like a diaper. I guess this doesn’t include digital sales?

    It’s difficult to judge digital sales since the companies don’t release hard numbers.
    Point is, for a spin-off fighting game like Pokken to punch around Street Fighter’s numbers is insane.
    SF 5 has still outsold it though as they’re sitting at 1.4 mil, while pokken has shipped 1 mil.

    Pokken deserves the sales for being an awesome game, and here’s hoping it either spawns a more complete roster for the next game, or DLC packs for more characters (yeah, I know how it sounds like).

    The Legendary Pokemon Darkrai as been available in the arcade version of the game for nearly a month and the last update for the console version had information hidden in it which not only mentions Darkrai but Scizor and Empoleon.

    With the popularity of the Pokemon brand, that doesn’t surprise me.
