This is what legends are all about: their luster increases over time. In recent days, the historic player of the Japanese video game Capcom has p***ed the milestone of 10 billion dollars in market capitalization. A record for this group, whose valuation is ahead of that of the biggest European players, Ubisoft To Embrace P***ing by CD Project. The reason for this stock market boom? The excellent sound start remake of “Resident Evil 4” – one of its flagship franchises -, launched at the end of March and which is approaching 5 million units sold.
Last week, Capcom also announced that a mobile version of its hit Monster Hunter series was planned for September and will be the work of Niantic who developed the Pokémon Go phenomenon. As a result, the group announced that it was going to sell 40 million video games over its fiscal year – its record – and that it was aiming for the 100 million mark in the long term.
