Capcom has announced its financial results of the first quarter of the current fiscal year (April 1-June 30), and the company is continuing to enjoy impressive commercial success on the back of strong sales for major well-received releases.
Capcom says it has posted its highest ever net sales and profits to date for the first quarter of any fiscal year, with the primary drivers being the sales for Resident Evil Village and Monster Hunter Rise. At last count, Resident Evil Village had shipped 4.5 million units worldwide, while Monster Hunter Rise had shipped over 7 million units.
The company has reported a 104.1% year-over-year increase in net sales and a 120.4% year-over-year increase in operating profits. Over the course of the quarter, Capcom sold 13.3 million units of console games, which is up 44.6% from Q1 of the previous fiscal year.
Resident Evil Village is available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia. Monster Hunter Rise is currently available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch, but will also be releasing for PC next year.
