Capcom's saw increased sales and earnings in the first quarter. The company attributed the strong numbers of success of Dragon's Dogma in Japan and the success of social games under the Beeline brand.
For the three months ended June 30, sales reached 18,620 million yen, up 55.8% from the same period the year prior. Operating income increased 244.4% to 2,669 million yen, and net income was up 290.2% to 1,320 million yen.
While Dragon's Dogma struggled outside of Japan, in Japan, which Capcom described as a "more profitable" market, its sales exceeded expectations. Overall, the game sold 1,050,000 units over the period.
Japan was Capcom's biggest market for the three month period, with 1,100,000 units of software sold. North America and Europe followed with 600,000 units each, followed by Asia with 100,000 units. Total software units sold for the period reached 2,400,000 units.
In social gaming, Minna to Monhan Card Master, released for Mobage last year, maintained steady sales. Resident Evil Outbreak Survive on GREE steadily gained new users. Overall, the company gained two million registered SNS users.
