On the Japanese Web site Mainichi, Capcom has released its software sales expectations for the rest of its fiscal year, which ends in March 2003. Capcom hopes to ship 850,000 copies of Auto Modellista for the PlayStation 2 in Japan and plans to release 22 PlayStation 2 games before the end of the period. For the GameCube, Capcom projects that it will ship more than 1 million copies of Biohazard 0 in Japan, and that it will ship 3.2 million combined units of its entire GameCube catalog for the fiscal year. Capcom will support the Xbox with five games and hopes to ship 600,000 copies across all releases for the fiscal year.
The report also stated that Capcom has shipped 400,000 copies of Biohazard (known as Resident Evil outside Japan) to Japanese retailers. Many of the games in question have yet to be officially announced by Capcom. Expect to hear more from E3 later this month.
