Capcom has revealed that Lost Planet 2 "underperformed its projection substantially", Monster Hunter Tri "grew at a sluggish pace" and Ghost Trick "struggled".
The comments come from a miserable financial report for the three month period ended 30th June. In it, Capcom's net income plummeted by 90.4 per cent to just 213 million yen compared to the same period last year.
Lost Planet 2 sold 1.5 million units globally during those three months, while Super Street Fighter IV sold 1.35 million units ("steady growth") and Monster Hunter Tri sold 690,00 units.
Monster Hunter Frontier Online also witnessed "steady growth". The game shipped 130,000 units on Xbox 360 in Japan in two weeks. That's not bad, given the paltry number of Xbox 360 owners in the region. The PC version of Monster Hunter Frontier Online will have a "major update" in September.
The financial document claimed European and US markets were "shrinking under the stagnating economy", which meant losing money to bad exchange rates, and "an increase in software development expenses" helped operating income plunge 72.6 per cent YOY.
Capcom will attempt to fix these numbers by "renovating" Japanese development and "updating" the overseas alliance model.
Capcom's also going to dive into the mobile market with a social Monster Hunter game.
