Street Fighter publisher Capcom has reported to its investors that the company's profits and sales fell during the three months ended June 30.
Cash from game sales came in at £117 million during the 91 day period, down a little from the £125 million generated during the same period last year. Net profit fell further, by 37 per cent, down to £5.55 million compared to £8.85 million last year.
Capcom said its key games did not do particularly poorly, but these games were not sold at a premium price and so revenues were not as good as unit sales. Resident Evil Revelations "basically achieved projected units" while Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen performed solidly in the digital space.
The publisher sold about 2.5 million games during the quarter, broken down by platform as follows:
|Capcom global game unit sales, April 1 - June 30|
|Wii U games||160,000|
|PC and other||140,000|
The publisher has not adjusted its financial projections for the full year.
In July, Capcom announced the return of its Strider franchise. The reboot is confirmed for digital release in 2014 for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
It also recently revealed it was developing Ultra Street Fighter 4, including five additional characters, due for release in early 2014.
