Capcom has revealed that sales of its Wii on-rails shooter, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, has surpassed sales predictions by 50% - sales of the game as of December 31, 2008 stand at 950,000 units.
"Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles" (for Wii), which is the latest title of the series, achieved robust sales particularly in the US and Europe. The popularity of this title helped to make a favourable start in year-end sales," said Capcom.

Critics' favourite Zack & Wiki has sold approximately 300,000 units worldwide, although sales do not include those in European territories - the game only launching there early in the company's Q4.
