Capcom Reports Revenue Increase, Street Fighter V Expected to Sell 2 Million
Capcom has published positive financial results for the nine-month period between April 1 and December 31, 2015, with net revenue increasing by 19.3 percent to ¥57 billion during the year.
The publisher attributed its positive financial performance to growth in the mobile segment, profitable digital downloads, and strong performance of Monster Hunter X, which has been described as a “major hit.” Additionally, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Resident Evil Revelations 2 have both sold more than 500,000 units each. Performance of Dragon’s Dogma Online has also been strong across the PlayStation 3, PS4, and PC. The game was off to a “solid start” with over 1.5 million downloads.
This year, Capcom will be releasing Street Fighter V for the PlayStation 4 and PC, which the publisher expects will sell two million units across Japan, North America, and Europe following its launch on February 16.
