Worldwide sales of game software were 61.4 billion US dollars in 2012 and are expected to increase to 86.6 billion US dollars in 2017.

The company will continue to extend the appeal of its renowned intellectual properties with titles such as "Street Fighter X All Capcom" and other app games for smartphones. In addition, Capcom will be releasing new PC online games like "Breath of Fire 6", online games such as "deep down" for next-generation home game consoles, a version of "Monster Hunter Frontier G" using traditional (not simplified) Chinese characters, and further content. By strategically launching titles for specific platforms and the needs of consumers in individual regions, Capcom plans to heighten its presence and profitability in each market category.
In addition to these 14 titles, Capcom plans to introduce many more titles for home game consoles and smartphones starting in the summer of 2013.
