Capcom moved Lost Planet 2, Super Street Fighter IV, and the domestic release of Monster Hunter Tri from this fiscal year to the next. In plain English, that means those key titles won’t come out until after April 1, 2010.
Why? Their forecast revision explains, Capcom wants to avoid competition from other fourth fiscal quarter games, expand their lineup for the next fiscal year, and preserve the value of Capcom’s titles.
Capcom plans to release Monster Hunter Tri, Lost Planet 2, Super Street Fighter IV and Dead Rising 2 throughout the next fiscal year instead of clumping them together. Look for those games and “other major titles” between April 1, 2010 to March 31, 2011.
The onslaught of Q1 2010 games also made Capcom slash their Dark Void sales forecast. Originally, they planned to sell 1,300,000 units of Dark Void. Capcom now expects to sell 600,000 copies.
