Capcom posted a record quarter , the best ever in the Japanese company’s history. The credit goes naturally to the performances of games like Resident Evil Village and Monster Hunter Rise , real matadors of the last few months.
The official press release from the Osaka house confirms the 4.5 million copies of Resident Evil Village and speaks of total sales of 13.3 million copies for the entire catalog: a growth of 44.6% compared to the previous year .
In the three months that ended June 30, 2021, Capcom totaled net sales of 48.42 billion yen (+ 104.1% compared to the previous year), operating revenues of 23.60 billion yen (+120, 4% compared to the previous year) and ordinary revenues of 23.90 billion yen (+ 125% compared to the previous year).
These are numbers that have determined, as mentioned, the best quarter ever for the Japanese company both in terms of net sales and in terms of profits.
The press release reiterates that these results were achieved thanks to the excellent performance of Resident Evil Village, launched in May, and the important contribution of Monster Hunter Rise, released in March.
