Capcom‘s latest financial results have posted record profits for the Japanese video game giant, with sales of Resident Evil titles, Monster Hunter World and the newly-released Monster Hunter Rise driving strong performance for the company during the 12 months ended March 31, 2021.
Net sales spiked 17% year-on-year, while operating income arrived at 34.6 billion yen (an increase of 51.6%) and standard income hit 35 billion yen — an increase of 52%. This is the eighth consecutive year for operating income growth at Capcom, and the fourth consecutive year for record profits.
In terms of games, the likes of Resident Evil 2 Remake, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne and Devil May Cry 5: Special Edition all pull in the punters, with the latter having “performed well” on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
Resident Evil Village is Capcom’s latest major project, having launched on May 7, 2021 for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One, so no doubt that game will also contributed to Capcom’s performance during the current financial year.
