Financially, Capcom had a rotten year last year. The company described its financial results as "sluggish" in its annual financial report, and said sales were down 27.3 per cent to around $734m and profit decreased by a 73.1 per cent to around $23.8m in the financial year ending March 31.

The company cited "weak sales of some new titles," as a contributing factor for the drop in profits. They didn't name which titles were so weak, but I'm thinking Dark Void couldn't have added much to the bottom line.

Another reason for the loss of profit: Timing. Many of the top Capcom titles were delayed into the 2010 financial year, where Capcom expects to do much better, naming  Super Street Fighter IV, Monster Hunter Tri and Lost Planet 2 as potentially profitable releases.

If you're into divining meaning from financial reports, I urge you to check out this prediction for next fiscal year:

Which Capcom title are you most looking forward to in the future? Personally, I'm all about the sequel to Lost Planet, baby. So much possibility! I may play Super Street Fighter IV, after years of non-violence.
