Capcom financials: net profits up 355%, Resi 6 ships 3.7 million units

That’s ‘ships’, not ‘sells’ people, be aware of the difference. Capcom has announced some positive half-year financials that show a significant profit increase due to the success of Dragon’s Dogma and Resident Evil 6 – among others.

GI.biz reports that for the period ending September 30, Capcom’s net sales increased by 55.7% on last year, that’s 45.5 billion Yen – which is roughly $570m/£354m.

The publisher’s vastly increased digital output accounted a rise in profits of 69.1% on 2011, which equates to for 35 billion Yen – roughly $438m/£272m.

Dragon’s Dogma was a big-hitter at over one million sales, but the news wasn’t entirely rosy, as Capcom’ arcade division saw a 7% dip at 5.6 billion Yen – roughly $70m/£43. The publisher closed two arcades during the period and not operates only 35 sites worldwide.

    Seeing the success of this new Resident evil game, probably they wont change much for their next game, and i dont blame them, they are clearly seeing that we pretty much like it, so is undestandable they continue to do the same, well if that helps them make more dragon dogmas and for that new good IPS, well thats the price we will have to paid, not having that great Resident Evil game.

    Not surprising. They’ve been investing heavily in DLC recently and screwing a lot of core fans in the process…
    I still want to buy Okami HD though.
