Since the first title went on sale in 2005, Capcom has continued to expand this popular title and its captivating world to new realms through different media.
Capcom considers the continually and rapidly expanding market of mobile content through the rise of SNS and increasing capability of mobile phones as an area of growth, actively delivering content domestically and overseas and reliably establishing a platform for the delivery of casual content. Going forward, by investing in leading content, expanding the user base, and creating many opportunities for profit through the “Single content, multiple usage” strategy, Capcom will strive to increase performance even further.
