Capcom forecasts 1.2m Dead Rising 3 sales

Dead Rising 3 will sell over 1.2 million copies on Xbox One, says Capcom.

The publisher also confirmed its expectations for a number of its other titles, including 3DS title Monster Hunter 4, which the company anticipates will shift over 3.3 million copies by the end of the financial year.

Both Resident Evil Revelations Unveiled Edition and Dragons Dogma: Dark Arisen met expectations, selling one million and 650,000 units respectively.

However, shooter Lost Planet 3 fell short of its expectations, shifting just 300,000 copies worldwide.
