Capcom announced its financial results for the six months between April 1, 2023, and September 30, 2023, and as usual, they're definitely solid.
Looking at the whole company, net sales were 74,934 million yen (up 52.7% year-over-year), while operating income was 33,835 million yen (up 54.5% year-over-year).
Putting the spotlight on the Digital Content Business, which focuses on video games, net sales were 61,275 million yen (up 69.9% year-over-year), while operating income was 34,503 million yen (up 58.1% year-over-year). Yep. That's a lot of growth.
Street Fighter 6 (of which you can grab a copy on Amazon) "contributed significantly" to the earnings achieving 2.47 million units. MegaMan Battle Network Legacy Collection Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 managed to shop 1.42 million showing "steady popularity."
Capcon also confirms the "over 1 million players" figure announced in July for Exoprimal but doesn't say whether that's considered a success or not.
Looking at catalog sales launched before this fiscal year, Resident Evil 4 also "significantly contributed to sales growth," reaching 5.45 million units. Resident Evil 2 kept selling and is now at 13.13 million units. Resident Evil 3 reached 8.04 million units.
Monster Hunter Now for mobile platforms passed 5 million downloads by September 30, but Niantic has more updated numbers, and the game is at 10 million downloads by October 19.
In total, during the first six months of the fiscal year, Capcom shipped 22.6 million units of home video game software, up from 21.3 million in the same period of the previous fiscal year.
As a result of the positive financials, the company is on track to achieve its full-year goals and 11 consecutive years of operating profit growth, which is certainly rather flattering.
