Ultra Street Fighter 2 on Nintendo Switch does the business for Capcom

Share

The Final Challengers used Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo as its foundation and added new characters, color edit mode, balance changes and more in order to introduce a new wave of fans to one of the most influential fighters ever made.

Capcom shared its financial results for the past three months, and despite an overall net revenue rise of 7% from the same time in previous year, both Street Fighter V and Dead Rising 4 continue to perform poorly.

When it was made clear that Capcom actually meant to release a version of a game originally released in 1991 for close to $40, there was a lot of grumbling involved. It seems like this view has rung true across the board, we've recently learnt that Dead Rising 4 hasn't even shipped 1 million copies yet.

Elsewhere, it was happy days for Capcom during a quiet quarter. Compare to that Street Fight V which is released for PC and PS4, Capcom has gathered 1.7 million sale copies on it. The report cites sales at $105 million, roughly a 7% increase of last year's $98 million.

Exact sales figures were not detailed, but Ultra Street Fighter II was stated to be a "smash hit", while Resident Evil 7 and Monster Hunter XX "contributed to revenue to a certain extent".

The Switch apart, Capcom also sees scope on the back of the PS4, presumably thanks to the impending launch of Monster Hunter World, which Capcom has confirmed will launch in the first three months of 2018.
