Capcom plans 74 titles for this fiscal year

Capcom plans to release 74 titles this fiscal year, though slow profit growth is expected due to a drop of the price of software in North America.

Capcom has revealed its consolidated statement for the financial term ending March 2002. According to the reports from Bloomberg Japan, the company's sales were 70.5 billion yen ($550 million), an increase of 12.4 percent from the previous term, though profits are expected to remain at a steady 10 billion yen. The company expects a slow profit growth in the current fiscal year due to a drop in the price of game software in North America, and it expects to ship approximately 500,000 copies of each of its prominent upcoming titles.

The company plans to release 22 titles for the PlayStation 2, nine titles for the GameCube, five titles for the Xbox, eight titles for the Game Boy Advance, two titles for the PlayStation, one title for the Dreamcast and 27 titles for the PC and other platforms.

Capcom expects to ship 16.2 million copies of its software releases this fiscal year. Titles such as Auto Modellista (PS2), Devil May Cry 2 (PS2), and Resident Evil 0 (GC) are included in the software lineup for fiscal year 2003.
