    Capcom Has Declines in Sales and Profits for First Fiscal Quarter

    Capcom has released their first-quarter numbers and the company has posted declines in sales and profits. Sales came in at 9,575 million yen (55m/$93m) which is a 45.1% decline from last year's first quarter. Similarly, profits, which were 765 million yen (4.4m/$7.4m), fell by 7.5% compared to last year's first quarter.

    Capcom cites the lack of major new titles during the period as the reason for the lackluster numbers. Right now, Dead Rising 3 is continuing to sell well for the company. Additionally, Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy for the 3DS was released in Japan in April and showed promise; the game is scheduled for a winter release in the west.

    The company forecasts net sales of 80,000 million yen (460m/$778m) and a profit of 6,600 million yen (38m/$64m) for the full fiscal year, which will end on March 31, 2015.

    guess they should stop remaking street fighter and actually get some big named games out there, its sad that there just sitting on megaman and other big names, and they wonder why there making losses instead of money

    True that. They keep milking that Street Fighter cow, knowing it's running out of milk. I wouldn't mind a Dragon's Dogma II.

    They've dug themselves a bit of a creative hole sadly, here's hoping they deliver on something major soon. Last thing I want to see is a company whose I grew up with go under, no matter how muddled they've gotten.

    Capcom needs to start making some new Megaman and Viewtiful Joe games. I would also like to see a new Rival Schools game.
    Trophy Hunter Percy.

    it would be nice to see all there old IP's brought back into the light, but they've dug there own hole and the milking street fighter 4 to its 4th remake is getting boring, it wont stop me from buying the new one but there is no way im going to pay retail for it when I can pay $15 or less to get it complete lol, wish they would remake the Ace attorney titles or a new mega man would be nice, but nope there set on killing all there franchises and ruining the street fighter franchise as well. lets hope they get there act together

    you mean way too much development into 4 extra characters each new year when they should have easily made it as a patch cause lets face it in about 1 year it will be the same price as the 2 other retail titles which both added 4 new players each new release, don't know why they think that people are going to pay $40 for the disc version when in under 1 year it will be under 20
