Monster Hunter: World has managed to smash 8 million sales in Capcom’s first fiscal quarter. Due to its massive success, Capcom has had massive gains in both revenue and profit.
During the three month period, which ended June 30, Capcom managed to earn ¥17.2 billion in revenue, which is a 46% increase over 2017. Capcoms net profit also rose a whopping 649%, from a tidy ¥521 million in Q1 2017 to jaw-dropping ¥3.9 billion in Q2 2018.
Digital Contents business has been the main driving force behind the huge increase in revenue, contributing ¥13.8 billion.
The strongest single performer in Capcoms library has been Monster Hunter: World, which managed to ship 8.3 million units sold by the end of Q1. With Monster Hunter: World’s PC release on the horizon, that number’s only set to increase too.
Capcom also made mention of a “solid” performance from the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, which supposedly outperformed the companies expectations. Though, when the title contains the BEST Street Fighter game ever (3rd Strike, come at me), it shouldn’t be much of a shock that it shipped solid numbers.
