Resident Evil Village and Monster Hunter Rise are the protagonists of Capcom’s excellent results in terms of sales in the quarter ended in September.
Resident Evil Village has exceeded 5 million copies distributed worldwide, based on the latest financial results of Capcom which also show record numbers in terms of sales and profits in the history of the Osaka publisher.
For the quarter of fiscal year 2021 ended September 30, Capcom reports that sales were up 66.4% from the previous year, with a 61.9% increase in operating revenues, respectively to nearly 70 million. yen and 29 million yen and are record numbers for the publisher in question, especially for the second quarter.
The excellent results were driven above all by sales of Resident Evil Village according to reports from Capcom, which has now exceeded 5 million copies, thus continuing to grow compared to the previous quarter which was that of the launch.
Obviously there has been a marked slowdown, given that it has gone from 4.5 million recorded on June 30 to the current 5 million and a little more.
We are still a long way from sales of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard , which totaled 10 million copies, but the series has proven to be able to continue to be significant in the market for a long time, so there is time to evaluate its performance.
Meanwhile, continued sales of Monster Hunter Rise also contributed to Capcom’s strong overall results, with total sales of 19.8 million copies in the quarter in question across all games released by the label.
