Capcom's Net Sales Up By 17 Percent Halfway Into Its Fiscal Year
Capcom has released its latest financial report, which shows how the company is performing halfway into its fiscal year. In short, it's doing well, with net sales up by 17 percent year-over-year.
Net sales are up 17.6 percent from last year's at 33,729 million yen, and operating income has increased 191 percent over last year to 5,001 million yen. That figure includes Capcom's video gaming business as well as income from licensing, pachinko and arcade businesses, and other entertainment divisions.
The company cites a number of recent releases for some of the shared success including the Nintendo Switch's Monster Hunter XX, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, and the mobile game Monster Hunter Explore. The company also called out Ultra Street Fighter II The Final Challengers "a smash hit," and cited Resident Evil 7: Biohazard's sales figures, saying the game had shipped more than four million copies worldwide so far.
Capcom's fiscal year ends March 31, which gives the upcoming Monster Hunter: World a few months on store shelves before earnings are calculated.
