The Japanese publisher confirms that net sales saw 16.8% year-on-year growth from the previous fiscal year, operating income was up 51.6%, and ordinary income was up 51.8%.

The biggest new releases for Capcom in the fiscal year were, of course, the Resident Evil 3 remake and Monster Hunter Rise, and sure enough, the company confirms that those two were big drivers for its revenue and profits for the fiscal year. Meanwhile, continued strong sales for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne also contributed to Capcom’s revenue.
