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.
