Notice of Revision of Earnings and Dividend Forecast

Capcom Co., Ltd. hereby announces that it has revised its consolidated and non-consolidated earnings forecast and dividend forecast as follows for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2007, which was previously released on May 23, 2006.

(3) Reason for the revision
Net sales, ordinary income and net income for the mid-term of this fiscal year are expected to increase on both consolidated and non-consolidated basis, due to favorable growth in sales of "Dead Rising" for Xbox 360 released in this summer in North America and Europe in Home Video Games Business. However, the prospects of the financial forecast in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2007 remains unchanged as announced at the financial results presentation on May 23, 2006. The main reason for this was attributed to the struggling sales of "Mega Man Battle Chip Stadium" in the Arcade Games Business, released as an innovative product in the previous year, even though Home Video Games Business performed well.
