Capcom appears to be on a roll – with news the Japanese publisher and developer has had to revise its earnings forecast simply because its games have been selling so well.

Favourable performances from Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin and Resident Evil: Village have been cited as some of the main reasons for the earnings forecast revision.

“In our core Digital Contents business, we saw favorable performances from titles such as Resident Evil Village, which is the latest game in the series, as well as Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, an RPG in the Monster Hunter series.”

Monster Hunter Rise has also continued to grow thanks to the release of the game on PC earlier this year in January. Various other Capcom series have contributed as well, along with discount sales held during Q4.

“Further, in addition to the January release of the PC version of Monster Hunter Rise, a title that was originally released in March 2021, sales grew due to the stable popularity of catalog titles—primarily past titles in major series—and due to the synergetic effects of discount sales held in the fourth quarter.

“Altogether, this has led us to expect net sales to exceed our previous forecast. Additionally, we expect operating income, ordinary income and net income attributable to owners of the parent to all outperform our plan.”

According to Capcom’s official sales data, Monster Hunter Rise is now officially its seventh best-selling game of all time (as of March 2021). These sales are likely to increase with the upcoming release of the Sunbreak DLC.
