Capcom’s Profits Up For Fourth Straight Year

Another stellar year for Capcom, according to its latest financial report, which has seen an increase in profits the fourth year in a row.

Sales are up 16.8% from the previous fiscal year, hitting 95 million yen ($876 million US). Operating income hi 43.59 million yen and is up 51.6% from the previous year with ordinary income at 34.84 million yen (up from 51.8% from the previous year) and net income was 24.92 million yen (up 56.3% from the previous fiscal year).

Capcom’s core Digital Contents business drove results with digital sales of the publisher’s library help push growth. Furthermore, Capcom saw growth in overseas revenue due to realizing both expansion of its regional markets and games having a longer shelf life. Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil 3 helped immensely to get Capcom to its current position and so did Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, which is still selling well three years later. Devil May Cry V: Special Edition, Resident Evil 2 and Street Fighter V sold well, too.

Capcom launched Resident Evil Village last Friday with The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles and Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin rounding out the next several months.
