Resident Evil Revelations, Dragon's Dogma DA sales 'solid,'' Capcom says

When your biggest international releases are a console port of a handheld title and an expansion to a year-old RPG, you can only expect so much. Capcom published a financial statement today which covered the quiet period stretching from April through June.

Capcom said Resident Evil Revelations, which hit PC, PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 in May, "basically achieved projected sales." Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen also had solid sales, but neither increased sales over the same period of 2012, which saw the release of the original Dragon's Dogma and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

Capcom underscored its efforts to centralize development and cut down on overseas development costs, though upcoming games like Lost Planet 3 and Dead Rising 3 are both coming from Western external and internal studios, respectively.

The company's net sales totaled 17.5 billion yen ($179 million) as compared to 18.6 ($190.2 million) billion yen over the same period last year. Its net income shrank to 828 million yen ($8.5 million) from 1.3 billion yen ($13.3 million).
