Capcom tweeted and posted the NPD data showing that they indeed took home the number one spot in February. Gamasutra’s story detailed that Marvel Vs Capcom 3 was the number 2 selling game across all platforms in the US in February but it turns out they were number one.
Not that it matters all that much, Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is an exceptional game whether 100 or a 1,000,000 purchased it. You can catch our review of the recently released fighter here.
