Capcom Co., Ltd. would like to announce that net sales decreased to 17,457 million yen (down 6.2% from the previous year) in the 3 months of fiscal year ending March 31, 2014. As for profits, operating income decreased to 723 million yen (down 72.9% from the previous year), and ordinary income decreased to 1,151 million yen (down 47.9 % from the previous year). Net income for the current period decreased to 828 million yen (down 37.3 % from the previous year).

During the 3 months, "Resident Evil Revelations" basically achieved projected units and "Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen" enjoyed solid sales in the Digital Contents business. On the other hand, the online title "Monster Hunter Frontier G" performed steadily, while the browser title "Onimusha Soul", distributed in Taiwan in order to expand the Company's business field, enjoyed a successful launch.

In the Arcade Games Sale division, business consisted mainly of repeat sales of "Resident Evil5", which contributed to the earnings.

However, consolidated financial results for ended June 30, 2013 was decreased in sales and all profits from the same term last year, because of the lower ASP for the package software and the lack of major titles for the mobile contents in the Digital Content business.
