Capcom of Japan has announced that it intends to publish a staggering 74 games throughout the world this fiscal year, an unprecedented amount for the firm, renowned for its tight, focussed release schedule.
The news came at Capcom?s annual address to its shareholders in Tokyo yesterday at which the firm announced record earnings of $565 million for fiscal year ending April 2002. Although earnings rose, profits remained unchanged, a fact attributed to fierce competition in the US and lower than expected game sales by company president Kenzo Tsujimoto.
Capcom is aiming to release 22 games for PlayStation 2, 9 for GameCube, 5 for Xbox, 8 for Game Boy Advance, 2 for PSone, 1 for Dreamcast and 27 for PC.
