While Resident Evil 6 wasn’t exactly the blockbuster that Capcom was hoping for, by no means is the company in any sort of financial trouble.
The company reported that it has seen a net income of 6.6 billion yen ($72 million), up 104.9 percent from its previous report, for the fiscal year. Its sales have gone really well thanks to a few social games in Japan, as well as its Resident Evil 5 themed slot machine. But some games played a part as well.
Even though it wasn’t a booming success, Resident Evil 6 did rack up over 4.5 million in sales units, and DMC: Devil May Cry has already cleared a million units, though Capcom was estimating that it would clear two million. Soon, perhaps.
Meanwhile, Dragon’s Dogma did extremely well for the company, clearing over a million units, and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate has already done good sales with 600,000 units sold in the last month in Japan. (It’s expected to hit our shores next month.)
Don’t fret, Capcom fans. They’ve got a big year ahead.
