Capcom has revealed that Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles for Wii has now shipped more than 1 million copies worldwide.

The lightgun-style zombie shooter is the second Capcom Resident Evil game to do this on Wii, following on from Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition.

The new game's success has given Capcom an excuse to reel out some big stats, reporting that the Resident Evil series - including spin-offs, of which Umbrella Chronicles can be considered one - has sold (important distinction) over 34.5 million units globally since its 1996.

Good news for Capcom, then, although as Ellie's we-haven't-pimped-it-in-a-while Guiness World Records Gamer's Edition 2008 points out, there's a way to go to eclipse the success of Mario, whose combined output had topped 145 million unit sales worldwide, including remakes, at last count.
