Capcom profits in FY07, wants into Chinese online market

Capcom is looking to get into China and South Korea's online game market with some modifications to its console games. Reuters reports that Capcom's CFO, Kazuhiko Abe, expressed it would be an "attractive step to modify" its console games for online use in other Asian markets, as Japan only has a "certain group of users" into online games.

The publisher should have plenty of money to fund its expansion into western Asia after it reported $803 million in sales (up 11.5%) and about $75 million in profit (up 34%) for fiscal year 2007. Games like RE 4 Wii, RE: Umbrella Chronicles and Devil May Cry 4 saw "robust sales" overseas, while Monster Hunter Freedom 2 shook the money tree back home in Japan.
