New Mega Man Releases Performing Strongly for Capcom

Recently, Capcom Japan’s Investor Relations released the latest batch of info to investors regarding the company’s performance in the third fiscal quarter of 2018. Naturally, the question on everybody’s mind — well, everybody who would visit this site, at any rate — is “how did the latest Mega Man releases do?”

In a word? “Strongly.”

From their consolidated financial results (following a bit about the performance of Monster Hunter: World and Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate):

In addition, Mega Man 11 (for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC) and Red Dead Redemption 2 (for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One), a distribution title, reported strong sales, while sales of Onimusha, (for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One), which was released at the end of 2018, were also off to a good start.

Furthermore, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection (for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC) performed strongly, while Mega Man X Legacy Collection, Mega Man X Legacy Collection 2 and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 (for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC for all three titles) performed well thanks to a dedicated fan base and strong brand power. In addition, high-margin catalog titles steadily increased sales and contributed to improving profitability.

More specifically, in a response to a question about “small and medium type titles” (per Google Translate), Rockman 11/Mega Man 11 reached 870,000 units sold, while Rockman X Anniversary Collection (aka Mega Man X Legacy Collection) sold 990,000 units.
