Net sales for Q1 were ¥19.497 billion ($203.68 million), up 19.2 percent from Q1 last year. Operating income rose 23 percent, to ¥3.664 billion ($38.277 million). Capcom attributes the positive numbers to continued sales of Resident Evil 5, along with successful Japanese launches for Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth and the PSP version of Sengoku Basara Battle Heroes. "As a result," Capcom announces, "we marked the best net sales, operating income and ordinary income since quarterly release announcements began."
Less responsible for Capcom's record success: Bionic Commando and the localized version of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, as well as the arcade business. Can't win 'em all.
