Capcom profits up as Dead Rising 3 hits 1.2m sold

Xbox One exclusive Dead Rising 3 has sold 1.2m units, helping Capcom to a welcome boost in profits.

Microsoft has shipped 5m Xbox Ones, and while actual sales remain shrouded in mystery that still represents at attach rate of anything between 1-in-3 and 1-in-5, which is potentially very impressive.

Monster Hunter 4 was the publisher's star pupil, however, with sales of 4.1m units since its release in September – all of which makes it Capcom's sixth best selling title ever and bumps the series as a whole to over 28m unit sales.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen enjoyed “firm sales”, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies “basically achieved” targets and DuckTales: Remastered “over-performed”. Lost Planet 3, as expected, missed targets due to what Capcom describes as “increased competition”.

Capcom's overall sales for the year ending March 31st climbed nearly nine per cent to Y102.2bn with profits up 16 per cent at Y3.4bn.
