Capcom’s financial report for the first half of the fiscal year (ending March 2018) shows that their big releases for the year are doing fairly well.
The report, which is full of graphs and numbers if you’re into that, highlights some of Capcom’s figures for the year so far, and they’re looking pretty solid.
Resident Evil 7, for instance, has cracked the 4 million sales mark that Capcom wanted it to hit earlier in the year. Capcom didn’t hit its target early on, but the game has had a long tail. We knew that the game had shipped 4 million units, but sales now, apparently, hover around 4.1 million, which is a solid figure.
It sounds like their aggressive sales campaign worked, then.
Marvel vs Capcom Infinite, meanwhile, has shifted 900,000 copies. From the outside, it hasn’t looked like it was doing so well – it couldn’t break into the UK Top 10 at launch, and it was seeing heavy price cuts pretty quickly – but it seems the game has held on well.
The rest of the report isn’t quite as interesting, although it might be worth noting that the Monster Hunter franchise – and the various spin-offs, mobile versions, and arcade attractions available in Japan – continue to do very well. It looks like Monster Hunter XX on Switch (which only released in Japan) was a strong performer.
Monster Hunter World releases in January – that will, be presumably, do huge business for Capcom.
