Resident Evil 6 managed to sell 4.9 million copies through the 2013 fiscal year, a far cry from Capcom's original projection of 7 million. The action horror reunion tour sold well at launch but lost momentum more quickly than expected, the publisher said in its most recent financial statement.
DmC: Devil May Cry brought in solid sales with "stable" popularity overseas, and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for Wii U brought in weaker than expected package sales. On the other hand, Dragon's Dogma became a surprise success in Japan and abroad, clearing the tough million-sale barrier for a new IP in an unfamiliar genre.
Capcom's home gaming division saw slightly stronger sales at ¥63.6 billion ($643.3 million) through the 2013 fiscal year, up 6.4 percent from 2012.
