Capcom cuts profit forecast by 50%, due to mobile and Monster Hunter Frontier

Capcom’s net income forecast has been reduced from 6.8 billion yen to 3.3 billion yen—a decrease of approximately 50%. The reason for the drop in operating income and profits, the Capcom says, is due to the company’s Mobile Contents business and PC Online business—specifically Monster Hunter Frontier in the case of the latter—both of which performed below expectations. Capcom has posted an extraordinary loss of 5 billion yen, related to “structural improvement expenses” pertaining to their Mobile Contents.  Meanwhile, sales are expected to improve as a result of Monster Hunter 4 seeing strong sales and the “highly successful” pachislot title Monster Hunter Gekka Raimei.
