To be a small village, that of Resident Evil Village was visited by a myriad of people: Capcom revealed the copies sold, and the figure is absolutely from record. Whether it’s the exploits of Ethan Winters or the Junoesque beauty of a comely vampire, many have set foot in the village.
Despite the appeal, the world ofhorror it tends not to be much mainstream how much the ever-growing niche it has carved out over the years might surmise. However, the saga of Chris Redfield, Leon Kennedy and company is the best-known survival horror franchise along with the one that is talked about too much.
Now, thanks to Capcom, we have record numbers for copies sold by Resident Evil Village. Keep in mind the context that we have just mentioned, because it is he who makes even more impressive a figure that was not at all new even before. Hold on tight.
Ladies and gentlemen, along with Ethan Winters have ventured into the village no less than four million and five hundred thousand players. According to the “Platinum Titles” page of the same Japanese publisher, this is the last one Resident Evil the sixth best-selling game. An evident result of a right intuition in marketing.

We allude, unsurprisingly, to the lady Alcina Dimitrescu, at the head of the vampire castle of the same name. The matriarch’s suspiciously handsome appearance has been able to captivate a large group of fans since the first trailer; the idea of making him the mascot of the game halfway through the advertising campaign did the rest.
Lady Dimitrescu, as the emphasis we are placing on her even now suggests, has been subject to fan art and the most disparate tributes since her first appearance. The game also has its “age” by now, but the most recent example was the mod’s Bloodborne themed, at the end of May.
The responses to Nibel’s tweet with which we learned about the figure vary from the concept of a positive “record” to the idea of an absolute flop without finding a middle way. By and large, however, four and a half million in sales per this latest blood red ribbon from Capcom are by no means a small figure!
