Capcom has terrific year financially, net income up 257% Capcom announced in a press release this evening that they had one heck of a year financially, and set new records for net sales, operating income, ordinary income and net income, exceeding previous estimates.


While the dollars and cents here won't interest most fans of their fighting games, it's actually very good news as it means the company has been performing well and means more content coming down the pike in the future. Here are a few things of note from the release.

• Marvel vs. Capcom 3 sold 2 million units.

• Super Street Fighter IV shipped 1.6 million units.

• While the market conditions remained weak for arcade game machines, this business segment saw the video game machine "Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition" perform solidly.

What should fans make of this? Capcom isn't going away any time soon, and at a recent meeting they stated the future is bright for their fighting games.

With these kind of numbers backing them, expect to keep seeing Capcom creating more games in this genre.
