Capcom Q1 financials: 37% net profit drop at £5.55m

Wednesday, 31st July 2013 11:07 GMT By Dave Cook

Capcom has posted its Q1 financial report for the three-month period ended June 30, 2013. The report shows that net profit has fallen 37% at £5.55 million year-on-year, but that the company’s key games have met expectations.

CVG reports that Capcom’s game sales came in at £117 million for the period, compared to £125 million year-on-year.

The company’s net profit dropped 37% to £5.55 million, compared to £8.85 million year-on-year.

Despite the drop, Capcom has stated that key retail releases like Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen and Resident Evil: Revelations have met expectations, helping the company to break 2.5 million units sold for the period.

However, because both of these games were sold at a lower-than-normal price-point, there was a natural dip in income.

The company’s full-year sale projections remain unchanged from the start of the financial year, and will be fuelled by the release of Dead Rising 3 on Xbox One, Ultra Street Fighter 4 and next year’s Strider re-make.

    I wonder exactly what Dragon’s Dogma sold. Love that game.

    Lets see:

    Lost Planet 3 taken on by a unproven developer.
    Dead Rising 3 is a long timed exclusive to one platform.
    Ultra Street Fighter 4 is a never ending re-release.
    Strider Remake taken on by a unproven developer.
    Monster Hunter 4 no problems worth mentioning.

    Miss anything?

    @2 – I take it you’re not a fighting game fan. Most of the fans of the genre I know, myself included, are actually quite happy about Ultra, especially being that it is being offered as $15 DLC for those who already own Super and Arcade Edition.

    Can’t argue with you on the others, except Double Helix is even worse than an unproven developer. They’ve proven themselves to be quite shitty.

    I would take a sequel over a never ending re-release, i wouldn’t say i’m am not a fighting fan: i play a few fighting games here and there Mortal Kombat, Rocky, WWE and PSASBR: although the former three were on the PS2 days (can’t remember who bought these games) and early PS3 days (came with the system).

    I said unproven to be more polite ;)
