We actively use our intellectual properties to contribute to society. Capcom characters are highly popular among the youth demographic, so we utilize this brand awareness to support things like the development of the tourism industry, cultural promotion and the improvement of public order. Not only do these activities provide social value, but they can also be expected to introduce our content to a wider audience, further improving our brand value and growing our fan base.
