Capcom has revealed its financials for the first quarter of the 2015 fiscal year and sales are down. This, according to the company, is “due to a lack of new major titles.” Net sales for the period of April 1st to June 30th 2014 were 9.57 billion yen ($93 million), which is down by 45.1 percent from the same quarter last year.

However, titles like Dead Rising 3 and Monster Hunter are doing well. The former has “continued to show robust sales” while Monster Hunter Frontier G Genuine has “performed steadily with major update.” The company is currently “on track to achieve full-year forecasts with improving profitability” and will improve earnings by “reducing the cost of sales.”

Despite the decreased sales, operating income was 1.26 billion yen ($12.2 million), which is up by 75.3 percent. Net income was 765 million yen ($7.4 million), marking a 7.5 percent decrease from the prior year. Capcom doesn’t have any major releases in this quarter save for Dead Rising 3 releasing for PC so we’ll see how things pan out by November.
