Capcom posts $1.2 billion annual sales

Capcom today released its results for the fiscal year ended March 31, painting a rosy picture of the past year, one in which revenues rose sharply and a record five games from the publisher achieved the million-units-shipped milestone. (Capcom, PS3, Xbox 360)

gamingdroid  +   1236d ago
actual profit is around $90 million, but the real question is how much money is Capcom burning through in the past and what can they earn money from in the future?

May they continue to make Monster Hunter games forever!!

No shit. Its their number one money maker. Aside from fighting games, their games have suuuuucked. Waiting for azura's wrath to see if they redeem themselves. Give me back their glory days on ps2, oh wait all those awesome people left.

Hopefully on the PS4.

I just want Dual analogs ToT

With all that milking and DLC. I'm not really that surprised.

I hope they consider reviving some of their older IPs like Breath of Fire or Dino Crisis :) I think they have enough money to experiment with other genres
Lyr1c  +   1236d ago
or...OR...Here's an idea......

They make another Megaman X game?
josephayal  +   1236d ago
YES! Super Street Fighter 4 FTW!
Quagmire  +   1236d ago
Hopefully now they can get to work on a Monster Hunter PS3, Dino Crisis Reboot, and Lost Planet 3

LP2 was awesome, Don't know why it received so much hate.
ChronoJoe  +   1236d ago
I hope they make another Lost Planet. I feel the series has a lot of potential. Just need to make it more like Monster Hunter imo, no crappy story, just character building, co-operative monster killing :)

Great now stop making Super Marvel Vs Capcom 3 which will be announced soon, and stop making horrible DLC's that should be free and make the next gen game we all want.
My Link says it all.

Yoshinori Ono (Street Fighter IV) is pushing hard to have a new Onimusha in the works so if the cogs are turning expect SFIV trademark paint imagery (which isn't necessarily a bad thing in my opinion.) Also a new Okami and surprisingly GOD HAND (which I am most excited for!!!) However, I have my doubts that a new GH will be as great as the old unless Platinum Games is at the helm.
